Following that you have to keep on learning and doing two things throughout your entire lifetime; writing the best of books and investing into the best of businesses. This paves a sure way of not dying poor or unpopular at all.
Lifetime learning and investing makes the magic of compounding for you and writing books can keep all that compounded knowledge eternally alive. They continue to findout trustworthy companions for you even when you are nowhere around. Even they keep you also around by doing that.
