Tip o’ the Morning to Ya – A Carrot a Day

Rich Habits Word of the Day

Bushy-Tailed – Healthy.  After a week of eating carrots, she felt bushy-tailed.

Rich Habits Fact of the Day

In 1939, Bugs Hardaway, Warner Brothers Director, decided to remake “Porky’s Hare Hunt” with a new rabbit. Cartoonist Charlie Thorson comes up with a gray and white rabbit with large buck teeth. He labels his sketch “Bugs’ Bunny”. Since 1939, Bugs Bunny has starred in more than 175 films. He’s been nominated for three Oscars, and won one in 1958, for “Knighty Knight, Bugs” (with Yosemite Sam). Every year from 1945 to 1961, he was voted “top animated character” by movie theater owners (when they still showed cartoons in theaters). In 1985 he became only the 2nd cartoon character to be given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (Mickey Mouse was the first). For almost 30 years, starting in 1960, he had one of the top-rated shows in Saturday morning TV. In 1976, when researchers polled Americans on their favorite characters, real and imaginary, Bugs came in second …behind Abraham Lincoln.

Rich Habits Lesson of the Day

Bugs Bunny is still alive and well because he eats carrots. There are many health benefits to eating carrots:

  • Prevent Strokes: In a Harvard University study, people who at six carrots a week were less likely to suffer a stroke.
  • Good for the Gums – Carrots get rid of plaque much like brushing your teeth.
  • Healthy for Skin – Carrots have Vitamin A and other antioxidants that protect the skin from sun damage.
  • Reduced Rate of Cancer – Carrots reduce the risk of lung cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer.
  • Antiseptic – Shredded carrots can help reduce infections from cuts.
  • Prevent Heart Disease – Carrots havebeta-carotene, alpha-carotene and lutein, which are associated with a lower incidence of heart disease.
  • Improved Eyesight – Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, which have been shown to protect against macular degeneration and cataracts.

Thomas C. Corley About Thomas C. Corley

Tom Corley understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age nine, his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night, due to a catastrophic fire that destroyed his Dad's thriving business. For fourteen years they struggled with poverty. There were eleven in Tom's family, and they lived in constant fear of losing their home.

Driven by the desire to unlock the secrets to success and failure, Tom spent five years studying the daily activities of 233 rich people and 128 poor people. He discovered there was an immense difference between the habits of the rich and the poor. During his research he identified over 300 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” Tom decided to write a book to share what he learned. That book, Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals (1st Edition), went on to become an Amazon Bestseller in the United States forty times over a three year period. To give you some perspective, in order to be a true Amazon Bestseller in the United States, where you actually receive a specific Bestseller designation from Amazon, you need to be in the top 100 of all books sold by Amazon in the United States in a given day. Rich Habits did that for nearly thirty straight days, rising as high as #7, eclipsing such Bestselling authors such as Stephen Covey, Robert Kiyosaki and J.K. Rowlings. Imagine that - an unknown, first-time, self-published author selling more books than J.K. Rowlings!

Tom now travels the world, sharing his Rich Habits and motivating audiences at industry conferences, corporate events, universities, multi-level marketing group events, and global sales organizations’ presentations and finance conferences. He has even spoken on the same stage with famous entrepreneurs and personal development experts, such as Sir Richard Branson, Robin Sharma, Dr. Daniel Amen, and many others.

Tom has shared his insights on various national and international network, cable, and Internet television programs such as CBS Evening News, NBC News, Yahoo Financially Fit, Money.com, India TV, News.com Australia, and a host of others. He has been interviewed on many prestigious nationally syndicated radio shows, including the Dave Ramsey Show, Marketplace Money, and WABC.

Tom has been featured in numerous print magazines—such as Money magazine, Inc. Magazine, SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, Fast Company magazine, More magazine, Epoca Magazine (Brazil’s largest weekly) and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine—and various online publications, including USA Today, CNN, MSN Money, SUCCESS.com, Inc.com, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider, Credit.com, Bankrate.com and a few other media outlets.

National publicity has garnered international media attention for Tom and his Rich Habits research spanning 23 countries. Broadcast media, online publications, and television throughout Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Central and South America have shared his powerful message.

In an effort to help parents, grandparents, teachers and adults become success mentors to the younger generation, Tom released his second book, Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life in 2014. This book was the self-help category winner of the 2015 New York Book Festival and Runner-up in the prestigious 2015 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards Contest. In 2016 Tom released his third book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life. This book provides the latest science on habit change as well as more of Tom's unique research on the specific habits that helped transform 177 ordinary individuals into self-made millionaires.

Besides being an author, Tom is also a CPA, CFP, and hold a master’s degree in taxation. As president of Cerefice and Company, CPAs, Tom heads one of the premier financial firms in New Jersey.
