Asia’s Richest Man “Li Ka-Shing” Shares Advice For Young Entrepreneurs
Suppose your monthly income is only 2,000 RMB, you can live well. I can help you put money into five sets of funds. The first $600, second $400, third $300, fourth $200, fifth $500.
First set of funds:
The first set of funds is used for living expenses. It’s a simple way of living and you can only
be assigned to less than twenty dollars a day.
- A daily breakfast of vermicelli, an egg and a cup of milk.
- For lunch just have a simple set lunch, a snack and a fruit.
- For dinner go to your kitchen and cook your own meals that consist of two vegetables dishes and a glass of milk before bedtime.
For one month the food cost is probably $500-$600. When you are young, the body will not have too many problems for a few years with this way of living.
Second set of funds:
To make friends, expand your interpersonal circle. This will make you well off. Your phone bills can be budgeted at 100 RMB. You can buy your friends 2 lunches a month, each at $150.
Who should you buy lunch for? Always remember to buy lunch for people who are more knowledgeable than you, richer than you or people who has helped you in your career. Make sure you do that every month. After one year, your circle of friends should have generated tremendous value for you. Your reputation, influence, added value will be clearly recognized. You’ll also enhance your image of being good and generous.
Third set of funds:
To learn. Monthly spend about 50-100 RMB to buy books. Because you don’t have a lot of money, you should pay attention to learning. When you buy the books, read them carefully and learn the lessons and strategies that is being taught in the book.
Each book, after reading them, put them into your own language to tell the stories. Sharing with others can improve your credibility and enhance the affinity. Also save up $ 200 per month to attend a training course. When you have higher income or additional savings, try to participate in more advanced training. When you participate in good training, not only do you learn good knowledge, you also get to meet like-minded friends who are not easy to come by.
Fourth set of funds:
Use it for holidays overseas. Reward yourself by traveling at least once a year. Continue to grow from the experience of life. Stay in youth hostels to save cost. In a few years you would have travelled to many countries and have different experiences. Use that experience to recharge yourself so that you’ll continuallyhave passion in your work.
