Notably one of the wealthiest people in entertainment and fashion, Russell Simmons is sharing his secrets in his new book 'Super Rich: A Guide to Having It All.' The music mogul certainly knows about being "super rich." Simmons -- who in 1991 founded Rush Communications as a way to bundle his many investments and brands -- is reportedly worth close to $300 million and counting, but Simmons has a penchant for charity and is just as generous as wealthy.

"I wrote this next book from the beginning, as an offering as something that I hoped would really affect people in a profound way," Simmons explains in a video statement. "We're born to be servants, to be good givers. I keep reminding people that if you wake up and think about what you're going to give ... that kind of giver is a good getter."

'Super Rich: A Guide to Having It All' will be available online and in book stores on Jan. 4, 2011. Check out the mogul's video statement after the jump.
