    First, I would like to thank my editors Stephanie Hashagen, Wintress Odom, and Erin Larson from The Writers for Hire in Houston, Texas for making my message clearer, bolder, and more in-your-face (i.e. upping the F-bomb count).

    The idea for this book was born summer 2015, and the finished work you now hold in your hands took almost two years to complete.

    If you have developed your skills to this level, you definitely have billionaire potential. I encourage you to go after your dreams.

    How much money do you have in your control? How many people, institutions, or governments would be willing to give you money to manage on their behalf? Can you allocate that capital to generate above-average returns?

    A quick test to figure out how many peoples’ lives you impact is:
    1)Do you produce a product or deliver a service that has the potential to affect multiple (at least 1 million) lives
    Menna Abu Zahrahas quoted9 months ago
    If you want to become a billionaire, you and your network must possess a skill AND have direct ownership of products or services that touch and/or impact many peoples’ lives (whether they are aware of it or not).

    Stay passionate.69 Keep setting goals and building skills. And remember that time is the most valuable asset you own.
    Menna Abu Zahrahas quoted9 months ago
    Most employers do very little to develop new or additional skills in their employees. This is ultimately your responsibility.
    Menna Abu Zahrahas quoted9 months ago
    The one thing that will ALWAYS be more important than money (assuming you’re in relatively good health) is TIME.

    And don’t worry. I’m not going to mention anything about love or family. That’s touchy-feely stuff. None of that will help you build wealth.

    FINAL NOTE
    MONEY ISN’T EVERYTHING
    Menna Abu Zahrahas quoted9 months ago
    Don’t feel bad or guilty for acting in your best interests. This is not a license to be a complete a-hole, and I’m not advocating that you engage in malicious, hurtful behavior. But if you need to skip in line or break a few rules here and there, go for it. Everyone does it. And even if a few people get pissed off, they’ll get over it fairly quickly.
