How To Build Wealth By Using Your Talents

Oct 16, 2007
If someone were to ask you how to build wealth, you could probably think of numerous ways to achieve this, but the simplest way is by simply making full use of your talents.

Sure you can make money through property and stocks, but not everyone has the skills needed to successfully invest in these areas, plus they both require you to have a decent amount of money to invest in the first place.

The route most people go down from a very early age, is obviously education and learning new skills in school, college and/or university. These acquired skills and qualifications then usually lead on to a decent job and a structured career.

That's all great but it's very difficult to achieve true financial freedom, and really build wealth working as an employee for someone else. All your efforts are going into creating wealth for the business you are working for, and you are simply a small piece of the jigsaw helping your company achieve that goal.

If you really want to build wealth, then the best way of doing this is through working for yourself and building up your own successful business so every hour you spend working is spent on building your wealth and prosperity. This is how so many of the world's richest people started out, and how they made their vast fortunes.

It's not as difficult as it sounds. The key is to use your talents. I can already hear people saying '...but I don't have any talents', but the truth is everyone has talents and if you don't know what yours are, you simply haven't discovered them yet.

The key to building wealth is sitting down, making a list of your talents, thinking about how you can best harness these talents to build a business, and putting this plan into action.

This is basically how I built my own fortune. I couldn't get a job after leaving university, but having a degree in Accounting and Finance I knew what kinds of subjects I was most adept at, and indeed I ended up becoming a successful FTSE trader on the betting exchanges, after starting out with a very small sum of money. This then led on to me becoming a profitable trader of the forex and stock markets.

So if I can do it, anyone can. You just need to list your talents and find a way of using these talents to build wealth, because there's nothing more rewarding than making a very good living from doing something you love, plus you get the freedom and empowerment of being your own boss and controlling your own destiny.
