The Randall Baskin story is one that I would want every Belmont student to understand. Here’s a man who gave the most extraordinary effort in building a tremendously successful business while at the same time giving the same high level of attention to the building of a successful family, spiritual, and civic life. Randall Baskin is living proof that God really does want us to have a good life.
—Bob Fisher, President, Belmont University
If I didn’t know Randall, I would think his story was fiction. How could one man, without the resources we think are necessary for success, accomplish all that he did? This book is the story of how Randall discovered some of life’s most important secrets and applied them to his life. I’ve heard most of these stories over lunch with him. You’ll leave this book the same way I leave those lunches wondering to yourself, “If he did all of that with his life, what can I do with mine?”

Andrew Carnegie’s magic formula brought fortunes to those to whom he disclosed his secret, and this was the inspiration for Napoleon Hill. Napoleon Hill’s secret of true and lasting success revealed in Think and Grow Rich motivated millions since its publication in 1937, and was a central, guiding force for Randall Baskin. Randall Baskin brought this inspiration to thousands in his life, not only showing what to do but how to do it, and this book tells his story.

Business schools don’t teach that the most important law of success is that you have to give in order to receive. Randall Baskin does it and teaches it.
—Calvin Lehew, author, businessman
Randall Baskin’s book Growing Rich is much more than a manual on how to get rich, although I’m sure it will be that for countless sales professionals and businesspersons. In his down-home storytelling style, as if he were sitting beside you as he whittles a bit of cedar, you’ll hear a rags-to-riches story that inspires your soul to say, “Gosh… I could do that, too!” But as the pages and stages of his life unfold, you will also mature into a joyful giver—realizing where life’s true riches are stored. In its chapters I found eternal spiritual principles which, if applied to one’s business life or the everyday business of living, will result in treasures beyond measure.
—Peter Shockey, author, Reflections of Heaven & Journey Of Light
Randall Baskin’s inspiring poverty-to-prosperity story Growing Rich will ignite the passion of anyone who is ready to turn their own challenges and adversities into greatness. Should be required reading for all salesmen!
