Think of The Playbook as the modern equivalent of Machiavelli’s The Prince and Sun Tzu’s Art of War rolled into one. - Silicon Valley Deal-maker
Here are the two basic strategies that billionaires use to amass fortunes. While most stick primarily with or the other, some utilize a combination of both to attain fast growth.
How Billionaires Become Billionaires: The Two Growth Basic Strategies
In a nutshell, there are two basic paths to becoming a billionaire or tycoon. The more high profile way these days is to focus on building one company over the years and decades. Think of men like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Ellison, and the two Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
The other path is through serial deal-making. Serial deal-making entails acquiring assets, increasing their value, and then leveraging them to acquire more assets. Specifically, these assets are cash flows. This second path to wealth doesn't receive as much media coverage, however, it's actually produced many times more billionaires and tycoons than the first path. Think of great deal-makers such as Warren Buffet, Carlos Slim, Kirk Kerkorian, James Ling, Ted Turner, and Rupert Murdoch.
The Tycoon Playbook focuses on the second path because it involves transferrable skills. Anyone given a system to follow can learn how to spot opportunities, negotiate & finance an asset's acquisition, increase its value, and then either flip it for a profit or leverage it to make the next acquisition.
All that is required is the desire to learn and then apply the Tycoon Playbook system.

The Tycoon Playbook teaches you the lessons of the second group. It's a systems-based approach. If you're interested, read on.
