"A go-getter from a young age, Langemeier started her first business while she was still in college. By 35, she was a multimillionaire. Her book,The Millionaire Maker, showcases the concepts she honed with her coaching-consulting company, Live Out Loud, which emphasizes aggressive, multilateral investing.
'What we noticed,' she says, 'was that the millionaires who got created faster, was related to how they sequenced.
