In the book “The Millionaire Next Door”, Thomas J Stanley (@thomasj.stanley) identifies a characteristic common amongst immigrants who come to America and become financially successful as an appreciation for hard work and the power of money.

Bert Martinez (@thebertmartinez), host of the Money for Lunch Podcast was raised in a family that fled communist Cuba, settled in Houston, Texas, and starting the first Spanish newspaper the area. Bert got his start in sales and marketing through the family business. As he points out, his father did not have much appreciation for anything that wasn’t the result of hard work.

Bert used public speaking as a tool to overcome a stutter he developed learning English. His career carries him through the ranks of H-town’s CBS affiliate. One fateful day, in the absence of a host to interview Joe Vitale (@drjoevitale) who was featured in The Secret (@thesecret365), Bert was thrown into interviewer’s chair. Later he would later purchase the show from CBS.

The launch of Money for Lunch has lead Bert on an incredible journey, facilitating the creation of lasting relationships. He now plays a role in soliciting sponsors for various charity organizations such as Arnold’s (@schwarzenegger After-School All-Stars (@afterschoolallstars) benefiting disadvantaged youth, and Randy Couture’s (@xcnatch) veterans charity, Xtreme Couture GI Foundation. But it all started with an immigrant mentality.
