Superstar Bloggers

wealthymatters“So what do you do?”
“I blog.”
“So what do you really do?’
“I blog.”

Such conversations, followed by pitying looks for an “unemployed” person is something a lot of bloggers are daily confronted with.

Truth: Anyone can start a blog. Not everyone has the imagination and ability to “monetize” it creatively to make a living or even a decent side-income from it. An extreme of the 80:20 rule applies on the internet. Less than 0.001% of bloggers probably make enough for blogging to be worthwhile money-wise. But for the talented few, the sky is literally the limit. In addition to money, the real gains are the people a person meets via blogging and the “real opportunities” that are created by these interactions.

Sure, there will always be the UHNW individuals and billionaires who can still dismiss twitter influencers as twits and think of social-media incomes as chicken-feed but for the average sort of person, its way beyond what many jobs, many other self-employment options or even small businesses will bring. And the overheads are truly miniscule in this case. Read more of this post

Starting With Next To Nothing


Taking Up With Billionaires

WealthymattersThese days I come across a lot of women who are keen to exchange their beauty to enjoy the benefits of some or other man’s resources.Most of them cut pretty poor deals and the others cut one or other good deal only to lose the benefits they just gained via the next poor choice they make.The following is a reality check for women trading on looks to get ahead:

‘We are happy that we were able to reach an agreement for the benefit and well-being of our son, Augie.’ With these words Linda Evangelista and Francois-Henri Pinault closed a fiercely fought child support battle.

Canadian-born Linda Evangelista is a Vogue cover model many times over, including on the current Italian Vogue.She was one of the biggest names in modeling in the late 1980s and early ’90s,At the height of her career, she famously said supermodels ‘don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day.’

Pinault is CEO of PPR, a holding company that owns Gucci, Yves St. Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Boucheron and other fashion lines. Forbes estimates his family’s net worth at $13 billion.He supposedly makes about $4million a year.Ladies,here’s the first thing to note: declared incomes and estimated wealth are complex issues.

The intercontinental twosome dated – sporadically, according to Pinault  – over about four months in late 2005 and early 2006. Augie was born in October 2006.After Pinault told Evangelista he didn’t plan to raise the boy with her,he supposedly wanted her to get an abortion , she willingly paid all the expenses herself at first from her roughly $1.8million-a-year income.But when a big contract with L’Oreal ended she needed Pinault to chip in.
