Money Lessons from Billionaires

Oprah Winfrey, net worth of $2.7 billion
"You become what you believe. You are where you are today in your life based on everything you have believed." -- First and foremost, you have to believe that greatness is possible. Many of the world's billionaires have shifted the way our world works, because they believed that they were capable of doing something that was previously impossible. Change is possible. Greatness is possible. But you can't do anything unless you first believe in yourself.

Pierre Omidyar, net worth of $6.7 billion
"What we say here every day is that our success is really based on our members' success, our community's success." -- Your success is directly tied to how much you do for others. It's not what you know. It's not who you know. It's what you do for who you know. Success follows generosity.

Karl Albrecht, net worth of $25.4 billion
"The typical human life seems to be quite unplanned, undirected, unlived, and unsavored. Only those who consciously think about the adventure of living as a matter of making choices among options, which they have found for themselves, ever establish real self-control and live their lives fully." -- Everything you do (or choose not to do) is a choice. Most of us think that life happens to us, but in reality life is something that we choose either by actively pursuing options and creating our own circumstances, or by blocking opportunities and limiting our beliefs of what is possible. You can choose the type of life you want to live.

Mukesh Ambani, net worth of $22.3 billion
"I think that our fundamental belief is that for us growth is a way of life and we have to grow at all times." -- Success is not an event--it's a process. Billionaires embody that process better than most of us. They are on a constant quest to improve, enhance, and outperform themselves. It's a constant, internal drive to become a better person.

Michael Bloomberg, net worth of $22 billion
"Getting the job done has been the basis for the success my company has achieved." -- Billionaires have grit and perseverance. Top performers work hard at hard things. And that means that successful people do the things that most people don't want to do, and that's why they get the job done.

Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud, net worth of $18 billion
"If I'm going to do something, I do it spectacularly or I don't do it at all." -- Developing a world-class skill means that you have the capability to ignore everything else. You have to be able to focus on doing an incredible job or on ignoring it completely. Greatness doesn't come from simply "putting the time in" ... you have to put the time in with effort, energy, and resolve.

Michael Dell, net worth of $15.9 billion
"It's through curiosity and looking at opportunities in new ways that we've always mapped our path at Dell. There's always an opportunity to make a difference." -- Take a look at any market-leading company. Are they compromising on their product in one way or another? That's an opportunity for disruption, growth, and change. Any unmet need, any annoying problem, any half-baked solution offers a chance to change things.

Charles Koch, net worth of $25 billion
"The role of business is to produce goods and services that make people's lives better." -- If your only goal is to become rich, then you're going to have trouble meeting your goal. However, if your focus is on making people's lives better, then you'll find that success comes much more quickly.

Andrew Carnegie, net worth of $298.3 billion
"No person will make a great business who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit." -- Success unshared is failure. Our connections with other people are what give our work meaning. The things we do will only matter if they are shared with others.

Tony Hsieh, net worth of $840 million
"The ultimate definition of success is: you could lose everything that you have and truly be okay with it. Your happiness isn't based on external factors." -- So often, we push happiness out on the horizon of life. "Once I get this job, I'll be happy." Or, "If only I landed that promotion, then everything would be good." Of course, life doesn't work that way, and there is always another goal once we reach our previous idea of happiness. Money is important, but your life should never be built around it. Happiness comes before success, not after it.

There is no any other answer except yes or no and my need some explanation if required. Including your mouth and breath should be clean and should not smell bad, your hand nails should be clean as well as your eyes also your face should look not worried but curious.

The interviewer always agrees to your answer and will not give you any response reaction that makes you uncomfortable, being confident enough will leave you no worries as you construct your resume honest and presentable. If the company is in pooling you may ask and may request for any status of your application in any way.

Resume Success

Resume Success

Your Resume’ represents you and your capabilities in performing duties and work. Besides what is written in your resume, a good representation of your resume describes your work habit and behavior. There is no perfect resume’s or perfect format for any resume’s, readers or employers reads and finds things in your resume that interest them most or what they need to know about your previous work or you as a person. Your paper needs to be specifically complete as possible as you can, giving your objective as an applicant showing what you can do for them or for the company or establishment either what kind of benefit they can get from you and not mentioning you can get from the company or from them. As an applicant it is important to emphasize how you can contribute for the growth and to uplift the company.

Experience of Work

The human resources seeks any information in your work experience how you end up with other company or other work field. It must be not so good impression seeing a resume ending employment of previous work experience in a very short time and may conclude that you have some issues of loyalty or impatience in work. An employee staying more years in his company has dedication and patience for his growth and career promotion, most cases people leaving the company or establishment is in need of career growth, however employers who read your resume think that you will not stay in long term to their company as what you did to the others too.
In a short term basis of work, mentioning that you are contractual employee understands the reviewer or reader that ending the services is beyond your control and it will lead him to seek information about your best skills written so they can find ways to hire you for a full time employment.
Describing your work experience should start from latest up to the last company accordingly. Honesty is the best way to present your work experience, most employers these days ask for certificate of employment for every company that you have work for as a proof of employment as per your resume.

Work Description

Mentioning your work description for work experiences is an optional, however employers may find it more interesting about you and what you are qualified for in the other related work positions in their company or establishments, mentioning some assignment for your work experiences may consider your flexibility and competitiveness to the others and may conclude that you are a very productive person.

Certificates and Accomplishment

The most common certificates required is a proof of participation or attendance in a course that is relevant to your field of work and could contribute the proof of your specialization. The credits for this is to describe to the readers that you are a unique employee that may find the company think to regret if they could not hire the applicant. It is impressive to read mentioning certificates that is relevant to the position that you are applying for, the level of field position is considered all the time as per the certificates and accomplishments. As an employer, I need to see if you have government certificates, licenses, standard trainings, and other international certifications.

Character References

Putting Professionals in your character references shows that you are confident and true to all information that is mentioned in your resume. Please avoid to put your Father, Mother or Brothers or Uncle’s in you references.


A short and less pages resume is more interesting to read than a bunch of pages including other attachments. Please try to avoid some attachments and keep it until the second phase of your application or during interviews, employers may ask to see some proof.
