Bernard Arnault Passes Warren Buffett in Wealth Race

It’s now Jeff, Bill and Bernard at the tippy top of the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
The vast fortune of luxury titan Bernard Arnault, who leads LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, hit $ 83.1 billion on Tuesday, just nudging past Berkshire Hathaway head Warren Buffet, who’s net worth is pegged at $ 83 billion by Bloomberg.
Leading the pack is Jeff Bezos, whose fortune — at least before his divorce goes through — ranked him as the world’s richest with a net worth of $ 140 billion. Coming in second is Bill Gates with $ 98.3 billion.
Bloomberg said Arnault added $ 14.5 billion to his fortune this year. This is the first time he has been in the top three in the ranking since it was launched in 2012.
Much of Arnault’s fortune is tied to LVMH, which in turn relies on the luxury market and, increasingly, consumers from China. While fears around spending by the Chinese hit stocks hard in the fall, the company proved the naysayers wrong, at least for now, and posted a 17 percent rise in organic sales growth from its fashion and leather goods businesses last year.
The company has also been pressing hard to catch the next wave of luxury consumers, wherever they are,

London Sunday Times Publishes Rich List, With Brexit a Big Wealth Factor

THE WEALTH DIARIES: The 2017 Sunday Times of London Rich List is out, ranking British — and international — billionaires and millionaires whose wealth reflects the shape-shifting world economy over the past 12 months.
The 29th annual edition of the list includes Britain’s 1,000 richest people, and the compilers argue that many of the 134 billionaires were able to amass even more wealth from the “post-Brexit boom” last year, which fueled the stock market and pushed down the value of the pound. New money, they said, came mainly from the city of London, property and manufacturing.
“While many of us worried about the outcome of the EU referendum, many of Britain’s richest people just kept calm and carried on making billions,” said Robert Watts, who compiled the list.
A sidebar to the main story is the International Rich List, which is even more interesting than the British one. At number one is the Walton family, owners of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., whose net worth is estimated to be 100.6 billion pounds, or $ 136.82 billion; at number four is Inditex owner Amancio Ortega, with a fortune of 63.5 billion pounds, or $ 86.36 billion; while at number 12, there’s Bernard Arnault, whose net worth is calculated to be 35.2

The Wealth of My Mother’s Wisdom

The Wealth of My Mother’s Wisdom


It’s amazing how much my mom did on my behalf. As a seventeen-year-old single mom with relatively little support and all the chips stacked against her, she was able to provide an incredible amount of support for me. Her lessons enriched my spirit, my emotions, and my relationship with God.”When Lisa, a seventeen-year-old from Queens, New York, found out she was pregnant, she knew she only had one choice-to keep the child and give him the best life she could. That baby was Terrence Jenkins, better known to the world as Terrence J. From hosting gigs on BET’s 106 and Park and E! News to roles in some of Hollywood’s biggest movies, Terrence J is living a life he could have only imagined when he was a young boy. But it was the lessons he learned from his mother that helped make him a man-lessons about sacrifice, courage, loyalty, dreams, and perseverance. Through her words and her actions, Lisa showed Terrence the right path. From an early age Terrence’s mother pushed him to succeed and led by example. Most important, she put her son first-even if it meant leaving behind the only life she had ever known in New York City in search of a safer environment for her son, having the drive to go back to school to learn a new skill, or having the courage to start her own business and build it from the ground up. Her drive eventually became Terrence’s drive. Inspirational, funny, current, and down-to-earth, The Wealth of My Mother’s Wisdom offers advice for a new generation. With stories, lessons, and advice from one of the top young names in Hollywood, along with input from some of his famous friends like Kevin Hart, Ludacris, T.I, Trey Songz, and Laz Alonso, Terrence J offers a positive, powerful message: with a strong family bond, the possibilities are endless.

Ron pulls from the greatest business thinkers and economists,?from Drucker to Karl Sveiby as well as current company success stories to fund his rich gold mine of proof.
