When it comes to the richest people in the world, wealth management is a hot-button issue.
This week, we looked at the five most influential people in wealth management and their wealth, and why some are worth millions while others are only worth $100.
In the meantime, the New York Times is launching a new series called “The Rich Have It,” and this week, it has a new story about the rich people who aren’t in the media spotlight.
(That’s right, we’re getting a story about them every week now.)
“Rich people are not just famous.
They’re super wealthy,” writes New York City native and financial expert Mark Zandi.
“I think there’s a whole lot of people that have it and a whole bunch of people who don’t.
They think it’s a big deal and they think it affects their life.”
For example, if you’ve ever heard of a wealthy person like Elon Musk or Mark Zuckerberg, the conversation around them might not seem quite as rosy if you’re in the public eye.
(A Facebook spokesperson told NBC News, “we have a policy against any content that promotes or glorifies violent behavior or hate speech.”)
And there’s nothing wrong with a wealthy individual having a bit of wealth, even if that wealth is a tiny fraction of their overall wealth.
But what does it really mean to be rich?
Zandi believes the rich can be defined in a few different ways.
Wealth is not measured by money in any measurable way, and Zandi says it’s all about the mindset that creates wealth.
Wealth can be measured in other ways.
“You can have a large fortune.
You can have an incredible sense of wealth,” Zandi told NBC.
“Or you can have $2 billion in the bank and a small amount of debt.
That’s really good at making you feel good about yourself.
You might be wealthy but you’re not as rich as you think you are.”
Wealth can also be measured by how much money you own and how much you have to give away.
“What is wealth?
Wealth is all of the money you have in the first place,” Zane said.
“When you give away your money you’re giving away your future.
You’re giving up your future because you don’t know what’s going to happen to your money.
That money is going to disappear in a year, or in five years.
If you have $20,000 in the future and you can’t give it away, you’re basically not investing.
Wealth doesn’t depend on the amount of money you possess.
Wealth depends on your mindset.”
The top 10 richest people on the planet are worth more than $200 billion, and that number is expected to grow by 20% over the next decade, according to Forbes.
Zandi doesn’t see this as a problem.
“If you’re rich enough, you have money to buy a yacht and you have time to travel.
That doesn’t mean that the next five years are going to be so much better than the first,” he said.
Zankis wealth doesn’t come from any one source.
It’s based on his belief that it’s possible to build wealth in a variety of ways.
In fact, Zanki believes wealth is the key to happiness, because it’s about “having the mindset to be happy.”
“If it’s not a well-defined system of wealth and assets, then happiness is impossible,” he explained.
“The more you’re happy, the more you feel like you’re contributing to the universe.
You have the capacity to create wealth.”
In Zank’s book, he writes, “The only way to be truly happy is to live the way you live.”
The key to living this way is to “keep thinking about wealth, not only what you own, but what you’re doing with your money, how you spend it, and the impact you’re having on the world.”
And when it comes time to figure out how to create a million-dollar fortune, Zandi thinks the key is to take some simple steps to create the kind of lifestyle that’s most conducive to creating wealth.
“Just be a little bit rich.
Take some time out of your day.
Go on a vacation,” Zank says.
“Start your own business.
Go to a local spa.
Take a yoga class.
Do something for charity.
And the more money you make, the easier it is to create that kind of wealth.
And when you’re done, Zanking suggests you should think about what that means to your life, to your family, and to your world.
“That’s really what the wealthy have,” he says.
But when you look at the richest person in the United States, it’s important to remember there are other people who have more wealth than you do.
“It’s like, are you rich or are you not rich?”
He believes the difference is more about the mind set of the wealthy.
