Last week I wrote a tongue-in-cheek ten point plan to get rich quick. David K. Williams, one of my Forbes colleagues, asked that I answer my sarcasm with an authentic ten point plan. Here it is:
This ten point plan won’t appeal to as many people as the last one. I recognize that some people were disappointed to read my last list when they recognized that it was meant to be funny and was not meant to be real advice. (I just hope no one bought an Italian sports car before they figured out I’d meant that as a joke!) If you’re still reading, I’m hopeful that you’ll join the community of people focused on leaving a mark on the world.
One final note: I don’t ever remember a time either in my life or in history when the world’s wealthiest were more committed to philanthropy and solving social problems than they are now. The Forbes 400 Issue this year was devoted to the social good the Forbes 400 are doing. More power to them.
