Many young people are increasingly getting into affluent living. Business and entertainment has made a good number of rich people within the ‘youth’ bracket. In terms of retirement, 40 is the new 60 and you can see people like Eric Kinoti and Eric Omondi already accumulating wealth that could last a generation.
This Trends continues to be visible and apparently a good number of young people have seen the essence of entrepreneurship. As Mark Maina, asserts in his blog, Mark Maish, a considerable number of people find themselves in a middle-class crisis where an increase in earning translates to more spending and loans and as one approaches retirement, they remain slaves to the loans they took to finance their lifestyle. To those who have seen the light and have mastered the lessons from Rich Dad, Poor Dad, business has become their solace and helps them escape belonging to this middle-class group.
We had the Kirubis and Karumes but they earned their money at mature ages. Right now, we have men and women who want to own private jets at 32, and they are staying true to their business spirit.
I hope that you too haven’t put a limit to your dreams because it takes an element of crazy to win big.
