Ndamukong Suh is still deciding where he’ll sign to compete in 2022, and there’s no shortage of suitors. While he’s mulling that over he’s also helping by offering people serious financial advice.
Make sure you're born to wealthy parents with an excellent money manager.— Ndamukong Suh (@NdamukongSuh) August 17, 2022
I wasn’t just going to take the word of an NFL player for it, so I decided to check his work — and you know what? He’s right! Nine of the Top 10 on the list of Forbes billionaires all made their money thanks to having wealthy parents without any real adversity in their childhoods.
- Elon Musk: Started Zip2 in 1995 with funds borrowed from his father
- Jeff Bezos: Was loaned $300,000 from his parents to kickstart Amazon
- Bernard Arnault: Given his first job by his father, and inherited his company
- Bill Gates: Upper middle class parents with wealth and connections allowed him to start Microsoft out of their garage
- Warren Buffet: Father was a congressman. First full time job was for his father’s firm
- Larry Page: Family and friends gave him money to start Google
- Sergei Brin: Started Google with Larry Page
- Larry Ellison: A true self-made billionaire
- Steve Ballmer: Son of a manager at Ford, which allowed him to study internationally before being hired by Bill Gates
- Mukesh Ambani: Inherited his father’s company
Suh’s method to making million is absolutely correct. Just ensure you have people willing to lend you money to start businesses, hook you up with connections you’d never have otherwise, or just inherit their entire company and you’re golden! Then you make that first $100M, get a good money manager who can help turn it into $1B.
The final step, of course, is to try and make everyone believe you’re a self-made billionaire who didn’t receive any help. That way you can tout yourself as a genius who didn’t need any help, thereby perpetuating the falsehood that wealth is a product of hard work and not nepotism. This ensures intelligent people with ideas flock to you, believing they can follow in your footsteps — at which time you can exploit their ideas, make yourself wealthier, while giving them relative peanuts and keep the machine rolling!
The system works!
