Learning how to build Wealth from The Ayalas (9th Richest Family in the Philippines)

I am a Money Magnet! We are Money Magnets!

Great insights we can learn from the Philippine's 9th richest family, the Ayalas.

MANILA – The Ayala family is among the richest billionaires in the country, and they endured world wars, dictatorships, political rebellions and global financial crises to form the largest conglomerate in the Philippines.

ANC On The Money's resident financial adviser Salve Duplito said there are three lessons to learn from the Ayalas:

1) It takes time to build wealth.
The Ayala Corporation was founded in 1834, and its success today took 180 years of hard work.

“When we look at somebody a lot wealthier than us, we must look beyond their big houses, posh cars, huge parties, and lifestyle. Before they got there, chances are they worked hard and long and sacrificed a lot too,” Duplito said on ANC’s “On The Money.”

James Altucher - The Ultimate Cheat Sheet For Investing All of Your Money


I am a Money Magnet! We are Money Magnets!

A comprehensive guide on how to earn passive income and how and where to invest your hard earned money based on the author's personal experience.  It is downright honest and full of wisdom.   A great read we can all learn from.  

A few of our favorite lines:

"Better to just make more with many streams of income so you don’t have to worry about going broke. And then saving will come naturally as you make more money."

"Money is just a side effect of health."

"Here’s the whole thing: stay physically healthy in whatever way you know how (sleep well, eat well, exercise). Be around good people who love you and respect you and who you love and respect, and be grateful every day."

"invest in yourself"

"Invest in experiences rather than possessions.Figure out interesting and unique experiences you can have or places you can go to (but they don’t always have to be places)."

"Books. Reading is the best return on investment. You have to live your entire life in order to know one life.But with reading you can know 1000s of people’s lives for almost no cost. What a great return!"

"Bubbles don’t mean anything. We had an internet bubble in the 90s. Then a housing bubble. Bubbles bubbles bubbles. And if you just held through all of that, your stock portfolio right now would be about a percent from all-time highs."

"Every day give the world at least one more reason to whisper “thank you” to you."
