Join the 32 Million People Controlling $99 Trillion, 42% of Total Global Wealth

Discussing wealth can be a touchy subject for many, particularly those trying to hang-on to it. Today, about 32 million people own more than one million dollars in net worth. But that’s just .7% of the human population on Earth. Yet, they control $99 Trillion USD, almost 42% of total global wealth.

How to Become the Best in Life, Business and Make Money (2)I’ve spent the majority of my life helping to build start-up businesses, a challenge that requires crazy work hours of blood, sweat and tears from my office in Nashville middle Tennessee says James Dean @ iHumanMedia.com. 

Often people ask me, how they can become a MILLIONAIRE … so I tell them my experience. Stay grounded even during the height of success. It’s a simple way to achieve your dreams. Recognize unique talent and always stay true to your life passions. Be sure to share your success with others … it’s self-perpetuating.

Always, seek continuous improvement and better education to succeed. Appreciate small details in life, reward yourself but stay unattached to material items. Keep it simple, low-maintenance lifestyles allow greater daily enjoyment says Mr. Dean. Don’t hide from yourself, or be embarrassed about your flaws, be authentic.

I recall a several meetings with HARPO PRODUCTION’S stable of CELEBS … emphasising the value of leveraging personal flaws. The unique approach paid-off delivering record TV audience ratings. 

The reality is our daily lives are filled with ups and downs, consider it all valuable learning experiences. If your open, people and business prospects CONNECT better with your common experiences. In the social media age of digital technology, there is no HIDING anymore. 

“For aspiring entrepreneurs and profit seekers, here’s my advice based on 25-years of business success. Ultimately, the sum of the impact your actions and business has on other people and families will be far greater than any financial rewards. The smartest path to true success in any pursuit is through creating the best value i.e. service, product, skill, art; in the world. It’s a core element most of America is missing today. To become a market leader, the best of the best … like Michael Jordan or Bill Gates, remember they never set out initially to make lots of money. They did it for the ‘love of the game’. To be the best in the world at whatever you do in work and play is how America can regain its MOJO versus fierce global competition. If you accomplish the goal of being the best by creating bleeding-edge innovation that adds value to people’s lives … all the money and financial rewards will come to you naturally says Entrepreneur / Mobile Web Engineer, James Dean @ iHumanMedia.com.”

Another important competitive tool to remember, build a work environment that produces creative ideas; ‘Think-OutSide-the-Box’ and associate with positive people. As an entrepreneur time is valuable and there aren’t enough hours in each day, so don’t waste a moment. That’s some genius advice my buddy Guy Kawasaki, chief evangelist at Canva and former evangelist at Apple told me in conversations over the years.
