Renowned real estate and oil and gas entrepreneur Younas Chaudhary has announced the release of his highly anticipated book, Path to Wealth and Wisdom: 100 Commonsense Tips for Self-Growth and Fulfillment. In this book , Chaudhary provides practical tips, lessons and reflections drawn from the ups and downs on his journey to becoming a self-made millionaire.
The book comprises one hundred brief chapters featuring actionable takeaways about life, business and finance. Dictums such as : keep meetings short, a bottle of Coke can be a luxury and seven tips to save money at home are building blocks that are easy for readers to remember, implement and adapt to their own individual circumstances.
“The format is ideal for readers who are looking for a few quick tips and points of reflection throughout their day,” said Chaudhary, who added that this book will primarily appeal to entrepreneurs, readers interested in motivational business techniques and those seeking practical business and financial advice. “But this book is not just about money,” he said. “It’s about personal growth and finding your purpose in life.”
Peppered with encouragement, humility and humour, Chaudhary’s insights on how to develop a growth mindset, overcome limiting beliefs and achieve one’s full potential come from a place of experience and authenticity. From his education in a dilapidated school in Pakistan to living with twenty three others and an array of farm animals in a bustling home (a haveli), to his first sundry work experiences in the West, to the trials and tribulations of the oil and gas industry, Chaudhary has been at the top and at the bottom — with as many struggles as victories.
For those just beginning their journey towards financial freedom or those simply looking to take their lives to the next level, Path to Wealth and Wisdom offers a no-nonsense starting point from a man who took on the world with just a few dollars and a dream. “This book is for those who have ever doubted themselves or their abilities,” Chaudhary added. “My message is simple: perseverance, consistency and self-belief will make you successful.”
About the author
Raised in a remote village in Pakistan, Chaudhary built several successful businesses in the U.S. and Canada using a mix of common sense, hard work, consistency and determination. When he first landed in Edmonton, Alberta, in late 1973, Chaudhary had only $30 in his pocket. To change the trajectory of his life, he worked day in and out, rising up from a slaughterhouse worker to a landman, to a successful entrepreneur. Then, just when he thought he had it all, tragedy struck when his wife Bushra was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and dementia.
This book follows the author’s first autobiographical work, From Dirt Roads to Black Gold, offering his tools and tips for productivity, finance and business — the same ones that allowed Chaudhary to establish himself as a visionary businessman in the volatile oil and gas industry. In it, readers will find practical business and financial advice, as well as wisdom for facing the unexpected twists and turns of life. All proceeds from the sale of Path to Wealth and Wisdom will benefit charitable causes supported by the YBC Foundation . In addition to his roles as a successful entrepreneur and author, Chaudhary is known for his dedication to philanthropy and community development. His commitment to empowerment and positive change is reflected in both his business endeavours and writing.
