Change your Philosophy, Change your Life
Rohn was a father and husband just scrapping by when he was invited to a seminar to hear Earl Shoaff by a friend. Shoaff’s lifestyle and message struck a chord with Rohn and he knew he wanted what Shoaff had.
For the next 5 years Shoaff mentored Rohn with simple but profound personal development. Rohn heeded Shoaff’s instructions that
profits are better than wages
and he began to build a business to replace his meager wages. Shoaff challenges Rohn to be a millionaire. 5 years after they met Shoaff passed away. A year later Rohn became a millionaire.
After acquiring his first fortune in the 1960s Rohn moved from Idaho to Beverly Hills, there he got the opportunity to present his story to a local Rotary Club. In 1963 Rohn decided to begin speaking on a regular basis.
