Rags to riches – some people are astounding!

crownThere are loads of extraordinary people in this world which is neatly demonstrated by this article in the Independent 11 rags to riches underdog success stories. It’s absolutely amazing when you look at where some people have come from and with a little bit of innovation, and bags of tenacity have ended up as multi millionaires.

My particular favourite story is of the founder and CEO of WhatsApp, Jan Koum, who emigrated to America from Ukraine when he was 16 years old, initially living on food stamps. In February this year, Facebook announced its acquisition of WhatsApp for $19billion. But lets face it, not all of us are going to have the ‘light bulb-going-on’ moment… although, whilst I do think most of us will have a ‘brain wave’ or a gem of a business idea in our lifetime, many of us wouldn’t actually follow it through.

That said, there is no reason why you can’t make more of what you earn or if you own a company -whatever size- what it earns. Earlier this year we wrote a blog ‘You don’t have to be rich to have a financial adviser’ and this still holds true.

The great thing is that you don’t have to be a financial genius or have any ‘make money quick’ ideas to benefit from having a Financial Adviser. But most importantly of all and far too often misunderstood, is that you really do not have to be rich or an ‘A’ list celeb to have a Financial Adviser. Financial Advisers take what you have, and look at ways to make you money and increase your wealth.
