"This really struck me. The use of the word "create." In today's world, how many people actually create an object, a thing, themselves? As opposed to someone working in a corporation for a salary?

And when we're discussing the idea of wealth creation, is that wealth creation from actual objects, or the creation/sale of an object, process or idea, or is it from financial manipulation of existing resources, and therefore the wealth is created not from things or ideas, but from other money?

I would venture to say that in today's world, the person who creates something and becomes wealthy from that thing is extremely rare."


Bill GAtes.....

Facebook Founders....

Many sports stars

Many rock stars.....

at least 50 internet company founders with their own ideas

But...you're fixated on 'quick wealth'.


Many others start a business and grow it ...and grow it...and grow it over time.....sell it then retire. By the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands.
