Do you 
want to be a Billionaire?
by @EricPesik 
http://www.slideshare.net/ericpesik/
Billionaires are members of the most elite group 
of people in the world.
To join the billionaire club, 
you must be you must be 1 in 3 million.
The good news is - if you want to 
join this elite club, membership is growing.
The world’s population of 
billionaires increased 7% last year 
to reach a record high of 2,325 billionaires.
Do you have 
what it takes to become a billionaire?
If you want to be a billionaire, 
it pays to have rich parents.
Just under half of all billionaires inherited 
a portion of their wealth.
And 20% of all 
billionaires’ wealth is due entirely to 
inheritance.
For example, the Walton heirs are 
among the richest families in the 
world, with a combined wealth of $152 billion.
The Walton wealth was inherited from Bud and Sam Walton, 
founders of Walmart. The Walton 
heirs own over 50% of the 
company.
If you want to become a billionaire, 
it pays to be a self-starter.
Inheritance helps, 
but inheritance alone is generally not enough.
Over 80% of all billionaires 
made the majority of their fortune themselves, 
even if they inherited a portion.
And 55% of all 
billionaires are entirely self-made.
To build wealth today, you must be in 
your own business. 
– Billionaire, J. Paul Getty
Starting your own company means 
your income will no longer be limited, 
you will use your time more effectively, 
and you will no longer need to beg for 
favours from people anymore. 
– Billionaire, Jack Ma
If somebody offers you an amazing 
opportunity but you are not sure you 
can do it, say yes – then learn how to 
do it later! 
– Billionaire, Richard Branson
If you want to become a billionaire, 
it pays to be a man.
There are 2,039 male 
billionaires, but only 286 women.
Among female billionaires, 21% are widowed, 
and many of them 
inherited their wealth from their husbands.
Women are more likely to have 
gained their fortune by inheritance: 
65% of female billionaires 
inherited all or some of their 
wealth, compared with only 40% 
of male billionaires.
Men are more likely to have 
made their fortune on their own. 
60% of male billionaires are 
self-made billionaires, but only 
35% of female billionaires are 
self-made.
Female billionaires who inherited 
their wealth are generally wealthier 
than self-made female billionaires.
“Too many women limit their vision 
and opportunities by getting 
overwhelmed.” Women walk away 
from opportunities that they can’t 
manage themselves, instead of thinking, 
“Who can I get to help me so I can go 
out to sell the company?” 
– Nell Merlino, CEO of Count Me In 
for Women’s Economic Independence
You CAN have it all. 
You just can’t have it all at once. 
– Billionaire, Oprah Winfrey
If you want to become a billionaire, 
it pays to be married.
89% of male billionaires and 
65% of female billionaires are 
married.
6.5% of billionaires are divorced. 
3.1% of billionaires are single. 
4.3% of billionaires are widowed.
When it comes time to settle down, 
find someone who wants an equal 
partner. Someone who thinks women 
should be smart, opinionated and 
ambitious. Someone who values 
fairness and expects or, even better, 
wants to do his share in the home. 
These men exist and, trust me, over 
time, nothing is sexier.” 
– Billionaire, Sheryl Sandberg
If you want to become a billionaire, 
it pays to graduate from a U.S. University.
65% of billionaires have a 
university degree, and United 
States universities count the greatest number 
of billionaires as their alumni.
The United States has 80% of the top 20 universities 
for billionaires.
Runners up: India, England, 
Russia, and Switzerland have only 1 university each 
in the top 20.
If you want to become a billionaire, 
a university degree is not 
necessary; and an advanced 
degree is probably a waste of time.
35% of all billionaires have no university 
degree at all.
14% of billionaires have MBAs. 
7% of billionaires have Ph.Ds.
Of billionaires who have 
university degrees, the 
largest proportion have only a bachelor’s degree.
School is not the only path to 
the billionaire club.
The founders of Microsoft, 
Apple, Oracle, and Facebook, all dropped out 
of school before becoming 
billionaires.
Newly-minted billionaire, 
Jack Ma of Alibaba Group failed twice 
before passing his college 
entrance exam.
Intelligent people need a fool to lead 
them. 
– Billionaire, Jack Ma
If you want to become a billionaire, 
it pays to work close to where the money is.
Nearly 20% of all billionaires made 
their wealth though finance, 
banking, and investments.
Most engineering graduates, for 
example, are not engineers but 
entrepreneurs. The same goes for most 
law and politics graduates, who owe 
their fortunes not to practicing their 
professions but climbing the ranks of 
the financial services sector. 
– Times Higher Education UK
If you want to become a billionaire, 
it pays to relocate.
Billionaires are global citizens.
Billionaires move their homes and 
businesses to take advantage of the unique benefits 
that different locations can offer.
There are 10 locations in the 
world where billionaires 
concentrate in groups, with 100 times more billionaires per capita than the 
global average.
No. Location 
1 - Liechtenstein 
2 - Bermuda 
3 - Luxembourg 
4 - Hong Kong 
5 - Switzerland 
6 - Singapore 
7 - United Arab Emirates 
8 - Qatar 
9 - Kuwait 
10 - Norway
In these billionaire hubs, only 
half of the billionaires are 
“home-grown.” 
The other half are foreign-born.
In 5 of the top 10 territories, 
foreign-born billionaires make up all or the majority 
of the billionaire population.
The fastest growing region for 
billionaires is Latin America, 
which grew almost 38%.
The United States has the highest 
number of billionaires in the 
world, but it is growing at a much slower rate.
If you want to become a billionaire, 
it pays to make friends with other billionaires.
Billionaires make friends with other billionaires.
On average, billionaires have 
business or personal 
relationships with 9 other ultra-high net worth 
Individuals.
Ultra-high net worth 
individuals are not always 
billionaires, but they have a 
net worth of at least US$30 million.
How do you make 
friends with billionaires? The same way 
you make friends with other 
people.
Billionaires form bonds and 
relationships with people 
who share their interests and 
abilities.
68.3% of billionaires are 
interested in sports, and 23% are 
interested in the outdoors.
If you want to become a billionaire, 
it pays to think big and take big risks.
All achievements, all earned riches have 
their beginning in an idea. 
– Billionaire, Andrew Carnegie
You must take risks, both with your 
own money or with borrowed money. 
Risk taking is essential to business 
growth. 
– Billionaire, J. Paul Getty
If I lose a billion dollars, I will have it 
back in less than five years. 
– Billionaire, Henry Ford
There is no single path to 
becoming a billionaire.
You cannot just go to college and 
take a safe job working for 
someone else, hoping that you will 
eventually be promoted into the 
billionaire club after years of 
achievements.
You can be the best educated, 
most experienced person in the 
company, but to become a 
billionaire, you need to be a 
leader - not a worker.
Do you have 
what it takes to become a billionaire?
Although there is no single path to 
becoming a billionaire, it pays to be a 
married male from a wealthy family 
with wealthy friends, educated in the 
U.S., with your own business related to 
investments or finance, and who thinks 
big, embraces risk, and is willing to 
relocate.
