Billionaires aren’t born. Even those who are born with silver spoons do not become successful by default. The role played by parents is extremely integral in ensuring that their kids’ future is not only resourceful but also responsible. Regardless of who you are, a high-net-worth individual or not, you all share common responsibilities as parents. If you want your kids to be the next most successful billionaires, there are certain things you will have to teach them.
Of course, there is no set formula that assures success. Intervening circumstances, especially external factors such as peer influence, may affect the course of upbringing. However, a few general suggestions should help. To raise future billionaires, there’s more to parenting than we know – and we will discuss it.
Money is the core of the ambitious task of raising future billionaires. Unless these kids learn from the very start the value of money, they will take it lightly in the long run. A parent is not supposed to raise brats; such kids make irresponsible decisions and continue with the same even after the baton passes on over to them.
Teach them the basics of money and its management as well as the advanced matters such as companies, tax management, and whatnot. You should never miss an opportunity to put them to the test. Give them small tasks where they have to optimize the utilization of money. Practical exercises go a long way.
Make them readers
Many successful high-net-worth individuals advocate the cause of reading. Perspectives change, lifestyles change, and decisions change as we read more and more. Books are repositories of everything we do and don’t know.
Educating future billionaires requires shaping an open-minded, risk-oriented, strategic mental framework, and books are fundamental for the same. While many suggest books should be centered around financial management, I suggest that you don’t restrict your kids to the same. Let them explore and learn.
Don’t scare them off
Some parents are very fidgety about their children’s safety. There is nothing fundamentally wrong with having such sentiments. However, the problem lies in overdoing it, reflecting your insecurities on your children. Future billionaires don’t avoid risks or succumb to insecurities. Of course, one cannot mindlessly venture into risky undertakings, but calculated risk-taking requires experience.
To gain such experience, your kids must learn to decide for themselves, fail, and learn from their failures. Do you want them to make big, daunting decisions? Make them fearless and positively confident. The more you shelter them and bathe them in unregulated extravagance, the more your kids will become complacent, uninterested, and timid.
Don’t hand over everything on a plate
Who doesn’t want to make their kids’ lives easy? Parents burn the midnight oil to ensure a life of greater comfort for their children. There is an ulterior motive but genuine consideration and affection towards children that inspires parents to work hard. However, you must avoid making everything easy for them.
If you want to teach them discipline, give them chores. Treat them as strictly as you would teach your employees. Take them to work if possible, show them how it works, and ask them to remember all of that. Do not make them a King/Queen without training them as princes/ princesses. They may not have to start from the dead bottom like you may have, but they surely shouldn’t start from the top. A step-by-step progress chart needs to be drawn to make your children responsible.
Teach your children about the power of networking
Good billionaires are those who understand that money can revolutionize lives. With the power of money, your children should be able to encourage changes in society. If they receive love and support from society, they will be able to nurture a big empire. That is where networking comes in.
Without networking, you will fail to exploit your truest potential. Take your children to social events, encourage them to initiate or follow up on conversations, and watch how interactions are made.
