“Put all good eggs in one basket and then watch that basket.” 

– Andrew Carnegie
If there’s anyone in history who could impart some valuable advice on how to make it as a millionaire, it’s the Gilded Age steel magnate and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. Born to a poor family, he began his career as a telegraph messenger boy in the railroad and made small investments into Pennsylvania railroads. A few decades later, he was one of the wealthiest men in America, because he had proven himself on the rails as a hard worker and good manager. When Andrew Carnegie directs us to put all good eggs in one basket, it’s advice that makes sense: when you put all your best eggs in a basket, you’re more likely to have the best basket of them all – and if you keep taking care of that basket, it’ll grow into something much bigger than what anyone could ever have imagined.
