Money in the Streets is more than one man’s journey in hard-knocks New York. It’s more than the recounting of risking it all to win. Told with heart and laced with the sentiment of tremendous gratitude, Barry Habib deftly weaves tales of his upbringing to take the reader back in time. From his childhood, where he’d pick up the discarded toys of other children because he had so few of his own to play with on into the sales world, where Habib got creative as a sort-of street vendor, Money in the Streets blends humor and hardship through the incredulous moments of Habib’s life. He wrote this book to answer a compulsion to share what worked for him as he scaled the ladder—creating multiple successful companies, growing into an international speaker, and frequenting major media networks as well as producing various entertainment productions—most notably as the driving force and lead producer of one of the longest-running shows on Broadway (later made into a film): Rock of Ages.
Habib offers his life as proof that you can keep going no matter what. He shares some of his most painful memories while also exulting in personal and business triumphs to encourage everyone to aim for the same.
Of particular note are the mindset tactics in Money in the Streets that are road-tested and personal practices of Habib, who treats each day as a reason to be thankful. No matter the struggle, whether self-doubt, negativity, loss, stress, or being “stuck” in life, Money in the Streets is a resolution roadmap. An easy read that will play on the reader’s every emotion, this standout work and Habib’s voice are unforgettable. He writes as if you are the only person in the room…because to Habib, you are.
