Everyone likes to get rich. But not everyone wants to put in a lot of effort to get rich. Persons like Richard Branson and Sam Walton who get rich through business tend to put in a lot of effort into their business. Almost all the people who are self-made billionaires put in a lot of effort and time initially. Are you willing to put in similar effort to get rich? How much effort are you willing to put in, in exchange for a chance to get rich?

If I wanna get rich, I will exert all the effort necessary that I think can make me rich. I will learn everything about the business and apply everything that I learned about the business. Then, maybe in the later days/weeks/months or years, I can relax already........

Actually getting rich is not just for people who starts business. There are many ways that people can get rich. But all require a lot of hard work. Even employees can get rich. Look at all the high paying senior management staff. They had a hard time climbing the corporate ladder to reach the top. It's not easy too. If they had come to work on time and leave on time, there is no way they can reach the top. All kind of people do get rich, like writers, singers, actors, politicians, scientists and whatever else, all do not get rich easy.

I strongly agree. Everyone has a chance to get rich. All that we need to do is find the right opportunity and grab it. There may be non-risk takers out there who are always skeptical... But then again, they have reasons to doubt though. While for those who find the right opportunity, I just hope that they will also share to everyone out there on how they all did it. If only people knows how to share, then I guess POVERTY if not totally terminated, will be reduced.. Share some more.

I have been in mlm for about 5 years in the early days I used to spend 12/14 hrs a day building up my business. Now I am earning about 4/5 times what I would earn in a normal job and I do 2/3 hrs a day within a few years am hoping that I can cut it down to an hour a day once it breaks through the £100 per year make which hopefully happens next few years. But a lot of people want that sort of money with no work at all.

I'm one of those who hope to make a lot of money with no effort. Manage to do that in my dream though. I believe that a person can be rich regardless of age, nationality or talent. Some become rich by starting a business. Many more become rich when they do not start a business, Warren Buffet is one of them. He never starts any business, he buys them ready-made. The only common factor is the extraordinary amount of hard work put in.
