Do you know it’s your network that makes you rich, not necessarily the money you have?
To build wealth, you should first build your relationship with wealthy people, before you chase money.
In retrospect, I formed relationships with billionaires, even though I wasn’t close to being a thousandnaire. I had to intentionally work on those relationships, because I knew they would bring me the money I desired.

In building wealth, social capital comes first before financial capital. That’s what billionaires did to get to where they are.
The company you keep determines what accompanies you.
The connections you have determines what you collect.
Who you follow determines what follows you.
Your network determines your net-worth.
These are simple strategies billionaires use to form relationships.
Billionaires only build relationships with visionary people. If you’re not visionary, you don’t need to be there.
But if you’re visionary, and you aspire to be a billionaire, creating long-lasting cash flow for yourself, then you need to surround yourself with people of like minds.

Robert Kiyosaki, in his book, Rich Dad Poor Dad said, “If I want to ascertain your financial level, I don’t need to ask you. I’ll only ask for the 5 friends you spend most of your time with.”
This is because the people you spend time with have a huge role to play in the outcome of your life.
Who are your top 5 friends? Audit them today and know if they can leading you to your financial destiny.
If you want to build wealth, don’t look for money. Look for quality people to build a relationship with.
