  3. 3. PRESENTATION OUTLINE <ul><li>Definition of wealth creation </li></ul><ul><li>Lessons from wealth creation </li></ul><ul><li>5 cures for an empty wallet </li></ul><ul><li>Why some people fail to create wealth </li></ul><ul><li>Q&A </li></ul>
  4. 4. Definition of terms <ul><li>Wealth : is defined as a great quantity of store of money, valuable, possession, property or other riches including a good name , character and information. </li></ul><ul><li>It must be noted that being wealthy cannot be equated to being rich. When we talk about wealth, we are not talking about little money here and there, and being able to live until the end of the month or having some treasury bills here and there. </li></ul><ul><li>That is not what we are talking of; we are talking of having an abundant store of resources or possessions in the form of money, land, mansions; like Carlos Slim ’s 74 billion dollars, Aliko Dangotey’ s 13.8 billion US dollars and Warren Buffet’ s 50 billion dollars </li></ul>
  5. 5. MY FAVOURITE DEFINITION OF WEALTH <ul><li>“ How long you will continue to live after all your income ceases”. </li></ul><ul><li>In other words, how long the money you have amassed will sustain you after you decide to work no more. Is it one week, one month, a year or generations? </li></ul><ul><li>- The answer is in your hands. </li></ul><ul><li>We must take note that wealth is created </li></ul>
  6. 6. Definition of terms contd.. <ul><li>Creation : To create is to cause something into existence not through natural evolution, but from ones own thought or imagination as in invention. </li></ul><ul><li>This definition is important for the concept of wealth creation. It is essential to note that wealth creation is a gradual process. Wealth is not made in a day. I guess we have all heard or come across these sayings; ‘Little drops of water make a mighty ocean’, ‘A journey of one thousand miles begin with a step’, ‘Rome was not built in a day.’ </li></ul><ul><li>Wealth is therefore accumulated over time . This ideology of accumulating wealth over time in order to create it leads us to the next key word - Investments </li></ul>
  7. 7. Definition of terms contd.. <ul><li>Investments : Investment involves putting away money to preserve the value and at the same time earn a return (profit) on the amount invested in the future. </li></ul><ul><li>Simply, investment is the outlay of money in instruments for future return (profit). </li></ul><ul><li>Psychology : scientific study of the mind </li></ul>
  8. 8. What then is wealth creation <ul><li>Wealth creation entails the use of ones own thought and imagination to work in order to bring something extraordinary that produces great quantities of money. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore, wealth creation is working with your mind or thinking faculty to produce something unique that will produce great quantities of money and property. </li></ul>

  10. 10. The story of Manhattan and the concept of wealth creation/investment <ul><li>In the early 1600s, the American Indians sold an island, now called Manhattan in New York, for various beads and trinkets worth about $16. Since Manhattan real estate is now some of the most expensive in the world, it would seem at first glance that the American Indians made a terrible deal. </li></ul><ul><li>Had the American Indians, however, sold their beads and trinkets, invested their $16 and received 8% compounded annual interest, not only would they have enough money to buy back all of Manhattan, they would still have several hundred million dollars left over. That is the power of compound interest (investment) over time. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Concept of the tree and wealth creation <ul><li>Wealth like a tree grows from a tiny seed . The first money you keep is the seed from which your tree of wealth shall grow. </li></ul><ul><li>And the more faithfully you nourish and water that tree with consistent savings, the sooner you may bask in contentment beneath its shade. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Concept of the tree and wealth creation (contd.) 2 3 <ul><li>Sow a seed (initial investment) </li></ul><ul><li>Careful nourishment and watering the seed (additional investment or frequent top ups) </li></ul><ul><li>Shade/Shelter (frequent and regular returns from your investment) </li></ul>1

  14. 14. Begin by fattening your wallet (PAY YOUR SELF FIRST) <ul><li>Decide that a part of all you earn is yours to keep (10% rule) </li></ul><ul><li>Pay your self first, “your investment should be the first of your expenses” </li></ul><ul><li>Your pay is the amount you invest/keep not what your employer gives you. </li></ul><ul><li>Every money you keep is a slave to work for you. Every pesewa it earns is its child that can also earn for you. </li></ul><ul><li>If you would become wealthy, then what you keep must earn, and its children must earn </li></ul>
  15. 15. Study and counsel with wise men <ul><li>Seek the advice of men whose daily work is handling money </li></ul><ul><li>“ Money is one form of power but what is more powerful is financial education.

  20. 20. S ome people are in the habit of saying “No” to all new opportunities. They feel they are protecting themselves, but they are also limiting the possibilities of what they can achieve. C onsider this piece of advice: when a new opportunity presents itself. If it arises that cannot possibly harm you and it could possibly be helpful to you in reaching your ultimate goal, then why not just give it a try? You’ll never know if an opportunity is just what you’re looking for unless you try it. When Hopes Meet Opportunity
  21. 21. Y ou have to start by doing something, so the first step is “Act.” It is better to do something than nothing. Those who start acting get results…those who don’t act don’t get much of anything. And don’t worry about doing it perfectly, just start by doing something. Remember “If it is to be, it is up to me.”
