The book The Wealthy Gardener: Life Lessons on Prosperity between Father and Son by John Soforic is a unique cliffhanger from the start.

The Wealthiest Gardener

The author combines intriguing parables on the life lessons of prosperity with nonfiction. This is not a book on ‘how to get rich quick.’ I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author through Booktasters on Twitter. It is a manual packed with tenets of wisdom for a lifetime’s financial dignity. Soforic reveals a deep scope of financial literacy that defines a prosperous life.

‘A way of life’
‘Awakening without money worries’
‘A spiritual journey’
‘A spiritual adventure’

In the book, we met several characters. the wealthy gardener, his friends, and his neighbor, and remarkable Jared. The friends of the wise wealthy gardener judge his workaholic life that lacks the balance of living life, as majority of us know it to be (or do we?). John Soforic gives an account of the friend’s advice: ’slow down’, ‘take it easy’, ‘enjoy more leisure’, ‘live for the day’. These are comments we hear every waking moment. You have to read the book to see the response, insight, and feat of the great wealthy gardener.

The father-son relationship plays out between the Wealthy Gardener and Jared.

Passive income was the way to freedom, and that my stream of gold was rental property income

This introductory conversation between the grand Wealthy Gardener and Jared left me in stitches …

‘I hope that phone has an app for pulling weeds’

Sound familiar?

Jared is a young bachelor who moved back in with his parents after he lost both his job and his marriage. What a typical scenario in many homes today? To ease financial pressure, more children that are adults live with their parents today.

“Do you know why I keep this acorn in front of me each day?” Jared shrugged without answering. “It’s to remind myself to never be so arrogant as to think I know it all,” he said calmly. “When I look at this tiny acorn, I am reminded of its potential, and I am humbled by the mysteries beyond my understanding. Only Nature can produce a seed and make it grow.”

Relevance of the Wealthy Gardener

It is what I have come face-to-face in my line of work, in particular, in succession tales of family businesses. I deal with two to three generations that use extreme measures to survive in their seasons of wealth, unscathed. The grandfather gets his hands dirty gardening, but the father adores his gadgets. The next generation taps into the success habits of more than one generation.

A firm foundation of solid and useful principles of money, wealth, and finance run in the book. The comprehensive coverage of financial fear, affluence, prudence, and success is clear. Highlights of meditation and reflection on the secrets of money echo in each chapter.

“We never know the value of money until we know the fear of its absence. Money, like oxygen, is not too important until there is not enough of it. But when levels run low, it will consume us. Then, every waking hour is spent working for money or worrying about it.”

John Soforic, The Wealthy Gardener

In this bewildering book, you will unearth how those who grasp the financial Holy Grail use their time. Find out the actual way to live life to the fullest and experience meaningful pursuits every day.

You may have an ideal interpretation of prosperity, financial security, and financial freedom. But, the values provided by Soforic call for urgency.

‘Adopt prosperity habits.’
‘Pay the price for an extraordinary life today.’
‘Today is a king in disguise. Let us not be deceived. Let us unmask the king as he passes’ wrote Emerson.

Favorite quotes from the Wealthy Gardener book

“I came to see ambition as a beast of burden, and rode it like a bull to reach my financial ends.”

“I learned that passive income was the way to freedom, and that my stream of gold was rental property income.”

“I want you to be filthy rich.” “In fact, I want you to be obscenely rich. … have so much money that it embarrasses you. I want you to achieve the kind of wealth that makes you feel sorrow for others without it. I want you to be so loaded that you won’t know what to do with it all! And then I want you to multiply it.”

Wealthy Gardener is a financial literacy masterpiece for generational wealth creation.

I saw that even the most enviable lives include tragedy, but tragedies are only tragic when they become excuses.”

“… The way to wealth is to serve others, to fulfill needs, to impact lives in a meaningful way, to live with purpose, to make a contribution that benefits the masses, to struggle well, and to make a worthy difference.”

“I learned that prosperity required uncommon persistence, and that my willpower was assured by my why power.”

“… who can benefit starving people more? A penniless Saint, or a virtuous man with a fortune to spare?”

"Dreams don’t respond to thoughts of someday, But only to brave actions and turbulent transitions.” ― John Soforic


“It is a kind of spiritual snobbery that makes people think they can be happy without money.” Albert Camus #wealthgardener #financialliteracy #financialtips #wealthcreation #generationalwealth #cashflowisking Click To Tweet

There are answers to life’s questions. ‘Is the price of success worth the rewards?’ ‘Are wild rewards of prosperity possible?’ The Wealthy Gardener provides the answer.

You will not put this book down – startled.
