World’s 20 Richest Billionaires of 2018

The year 2017 is gone. Happy new year 2018.

I know all of us has set goals we want to achieve in 2018. Whether these goals are Wealth, Health or Spiritual related, the anxiety and the excitement is great.

Part of my 2018 goals is to help young people in Kenya learn how to make money online in Kenya and be self-sustaining through this blog.

It was great seeing over 150 newcomers in the Billionaires club in 2017 and the young people under 40 years making it big in the business world.

My belief is that Kenya will produce legit young billionaires in the next few years. As we push through the year, it is good to have a look at people who have started off as the world richest men and women.
