      ITS GOOD TO SEE THE LIKES OF MR P MOTSEPE, WHO HAS DONATED HALF OF HIS FORTUNE TO THE CHARITY. BIG UP BROTHER. NOT EVERY ONE IS ABLE TO DO THAT, HE IS A GReat INSPIRation. HE LEAD AS AN EXAMPLE. I THINK HE inherited this from THE LATE COMRADE NELSON MANDELA WHO STOOD AGAINST HIS IDEALS…

      To become a millionaire you need to make a million by working hard. There are plenty of fields where you can make out money only if you have something different to offer. If you have a nice idea which you can turn into money then hola you are on right tack to become a millionaire.

      Don’t focus on the number, focus on the details of what you want to accomplish, the money is automatic.

      I focused on being a better trader, on a time frame that meets my personality. I focused on the education first and build my own system. The money comes in slow, but in bunches, but it began as a slow trickle. I imagine it will just snowball based on what has happened so far to this point.

      So focus on what you are doing and try to be the best, the money will come, don’t focus on the number.

        I’m almost 40. I’ve been up and down trying to make it to the top. With little success, it’s just not so easy! Blessings are all you need, even hard work is not really enough. My business made millions in the past years, but the night was a disappointment.Even now, still struggling to break the poverty line. Riches are blessings. Hardworking is about not to struggle suppression.

    Some people feel that the schools Ms. Watson mentioned is not attainable for most. In addition some feel they are overrated. Some thinks the connection that these people make at “Harvard, Stanford…etc..” is what really give them the leg up. Some people think the run of the mill “business education” is down right dangerous, and I don’t mean that in a good way.
    For people who think such things, one do not tell anyone, you’ll be rediculed, keep your mouth shut and your brain open, then read “The Personal MBA”. Then follow the offer for step by step education tailored to what you want to accomplish in life.

      That is a good opinion. It is nothing but Communism. There is poverty everywhere in Africa. When you want to eliminate classes and create a classless society then you have to think of Communism or if not then Socialism.

      Riches and wealth are measured in very different ways. Your friend that work all their lives are rich yes and not wealthy. Correctly stated by yourself. The main difference between Warren Buffet and your homies is that Warren knows how to make owning a company a hobby, not a job. Warren owns 1456 companies worldwide, and doesn’t spend 5 minutes worrying about the little issues, or thinking about one of their budgets. He has guys to run the companies and he watched them like a hawk. Asset protection is the true way to make and keep money.

      And what happens when that funding runs out? Do we just give them more funding and so on? And I know you COULD say we can create further jobs and educate them in producing more money and wealth for themselves and their families true fair enough, but how. I’m 100% sure if you come up with a viable idea person WILL take you up on your offer Vic… Your empathy isn’t falling upon deaf ears, but nobody can really do anything unless YOU come up with a solution to a problem that OBVIOUSLY bothers you quite a bit… Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.. 🙂

    Money is not evil so the limiting phrases that justify poverty to those who think they hate money because they don’t have enough of it are the last people we want to hear from. There’s more than enough to go around for everybody. Biblically, He says that silver and gold are His so having an abundance of money can’t be evil because its a blessing from Him. I will become the richest, greatest and most powerful African in the upcoming decades. You’ll remember my name. Sabelo Dlamini
