Do you want to be the next Nouveau Riche?

Bonjour, Au revoir, merci and Bon appétit... Don’t get me wrong, these are French words that are somewhat familiar to me. I’m happy to announce the addition of another French word into my French vocabulary. The word is Nouveau Riche, it literally means “new rich” which refers to an individual who has gained considerable wealth that used to be unattainable.

Nouveau Riche people have emerged from “rags to riches” stories and the world has a good number of people who have risen from poverty and obscurity to wealth and fame. Stories of Oprah Winfrey, Andrew Carnegie, Bill Clinton and J.K. Rowling will definitely ring a bell. These people are living monuments that wealth and fame can be achieved through determination and perseverance.

It is inspiring to read the stories of these Nouveau Riche people who have triumphed over poverty, we may even learn something from them or we can pick up an idea by reading their stories. The way I see it, the trusted route to accumulate wealth is still through entrepreneurship. CNNMoney has a very interesting article for determined entrepreneurs who want to be Nouveau Riche. They have uncovered promising ventures for those who have determination to be a successful entrepreneur.

So do you want to be the next Nouveau Riche? Then, dream it, live it and realize it.
