Stanley - author of Selling to the Affluent and Marketing to the Affluent - shows that, dollar for dollar, the most productive way to penetrate the affluent market is to network with its members, their advisors, and key members of their important affinity groups.

Networking with the Affluent and Their Advisors offers a proven method for reaching the affluent through their affinity groups and using that association to increase sales, billable hours, and client base.

He achieved popular acclaim with The Millionaire Next Door—selling over 2 million copies. His subsequent book, The Millionaire Mind, debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list.
