Lifestyles of the Rich in times of a financial crisis.
2008-11-23 08:38:00
Call it a credit crunch or a recession or whatever you like: It is upon us and it is here to stay for a while. It is becoming clearer that the market commentators have had it wrong; this current market downturn might take a bit longer to recover from than originally thought. Some say that the upswing might happen only in three years? time and that all will be back to former glory in about five years.Cutbacks, lay-offs and tighter budget control is now on the cards and now more than ever, employees, the media and the public is putting the lifestyles of the rich under a magnifying glass. Given the public outcry over Executive?s numeration packages after the collapse of Big Banking in Wall Street back in September/ October, you can expect that the elaborate spending habits of the Executives leading multi-national, publicly traded companies would be frowned upon.Please note that this is not another doom-and-gloom article about tough times that are awaiting us; no in fact this article is...

James Packer: Not Australia?s Richest Man anymore.
2007-12-28 11:37:00
I regret not having reporting on James Packer before. Of all the richest men of a specific country, Australia ?s former Richest Man used to be one of my favourites. Just look at this guy: If you see him, you would think he?s the bodyguard to a billionaire, not one himself.James Packer inherited his roughly $5 Billion fortune from his father, Kerry Packer who passed away in 2005. In Aussie Billionaire-style, the Packer empire comprises of a media and entertainment empire. James took over from his father and become one of the youngest billionaires in the world. He recently made headlines with allegations of acts fraud in his company, but direct links to him and his management was never proven.Today James Packer has his sights squared on Las Vegas and Macau (China?s Las Vegas). He was reported to looking at buying a $1.8 Billion stake in one of the Vegas Strip?s most popular Casinos.But? today the news came that Andrew Forrest (left), billionaire founder of Fortesque Metals Group Ltd ha...

Billionaire Heiress: Marta Ortega-Perez
2007-12-28 10:28:00
This is still one of my fav two subjects: Billionaire s and their beautiful daughters. My previous post on this subject was extremely popular, so I have decided to highlight a few more ?daughters-of ?Inheritance?.Forbes brought out their The 20 Most Intriguing Billionaire Heiresses ? list. From this list, here is one lady that really got my attention: Marta Ortega Perez .Marta is the daughter of Amancio Ortega, the Spanish Billionaire worth $24 Billion. Marta is currently being groomed to take over her father?s fashion empire with it?s prized jewel; the Zara Retail chain.As with so many of the Billionaire Heiresses, Marta too is a passionate equestrian, but that is where the privileges end for her. She has to work her way up in the company? just like any other employee. She reportedly started in the Zara stores by restocking the shelves. Today she is in the company?s Marketing department.I like that about her

2007-12-28 09:37:00
Shamed Big Brother star, Jane Goody got a £3 million diamond ring from Prince Azim of Brunei earlier this month.Jane Goody and our fav playboy prince, Prince Azim, got to know each other during the notorious Big Brother UK scandal that rocked the headlines earlier this year where Goody was accused of making racist remarks to famed Bollywood star Shipa Shetty. Goody and the Prince both shared the same opinion of the Bollywood star and made public statements to that extent. They have since met and became friends.Apparently she refused the £3 million diamond ring when Prince Azim offered to her, but we all know that deep inside, she was going ?Oh Goody!?

J.K. Rowling day ? Today July 21, 2007
2007-07-21 13:30:00
That?s what I am calling today. And deservingly so: Today her seventh a final book in the very popular Harry Potter -series was released. This, and that the fifth Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has been in the cinemas for a week now.As an educated guess, I will say that today, more books will be sold than in any previous day in history. Last night thousands to millions of fans would have camped out in front of stores like Barnes and Noble to get there eager Muggle hands on the last Harry Potter book ever to be published: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Never in history has any other author been so successful and none so deserving. I did a lot of reading about her for this article and realised she is THE BEST RAGS-TO-RICHES STORY in the history of mankind.In 1993 J.K. (Joanne) Rowling was living on a welfare grant of £69 (About $100 at the time) a week while calling a mouse-invested loft flat in Edinburgh, Scotland her home. Divorcee and mother of o...

Surface Computers - Microsoft designed the next evolutionary step in comput
2007-07-21 10:45:00
I have close to 14 blog articles which I have done the research for, but never actually took the time to write and publish them. But every now and again a story comes along that fascinates me so much, that I have to publish it immediately. This is such a story.Microsoft is once again changing the face of computing: The latest evolutionary leap in computing. Ever watched the movie The Island with Scarlet Johansson and Ewan McGregor? In the movie the character that plays the director of the facility uses a ?surface? / table computer. His desk becomes the computer, with ?files? (computer files) scattered across the table. Just by touching the table and moving his fingers on it, he manipulates the files, type and operates the commands.Well, Microsoft is making this all a reality. Click here to watch the video clip of a demonstration of the product.This is really fascinating! I can see that these tabletop/ ?surface? computers will soon replace our standard desktop PC?s. Pretty soon, your...

Futuristic features of Luxury cars ? Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Lexus
2007-07-04 10:20:00
I?m back. I?ve just finished moving into my new place. Stepping up. I?ve forgotten what a big task it is to move. It?s just not simply picking up your stuff, loading it up and moving. No, it?s a whole three weeks of small, time consuming small labour: Move this, fix that, buy this, install that. Admin, measuring and fitting, looking at options, schedules and unexpected expenses. But in the end, it?s all worth it.So I have the privilege of living in a better neighbourhood now. My favourite thing about it is the neighbours? cars! Expensive cars. I love seeing what they are driving. Looking? that?s all I can do right now, since all my money is going into my business and my new, huge mortgage.To protect the privacy of my one neighbour, let?s call him Andrew. Andrew drives a 2007 Lexus LS460. I?ve personally never been a big fan of Lexus, till I had a chat with Andrew. The features of this car are astounding!And that is where I?m heading with this article: The astounding, mind-boggling t...

Brands - The most expensive thing you can buy - Interbrand Rankings
2007-06-06 12:05:00
So three of my colleagues and I were stranded in the waiting lounge at Heathrow airport on Sunday, waiting for our plane to board. And we were bored. So I showed them my blog and we started talking about the theme. We talked about what the mega rich can buy with all that money and the subject changed to the most expensive stuff in the world. I told them about Updown Court, Lakshmi Mittal?s house and what the prices are on Gulfstreams and Mega Yachts.Then Charl, our South African colleague raised an interesting point. These tangible luxuries are NOT the most expensive stuff a billionaire can acquire. They are mere fractions in comparison to the most expensive item you can buy: A brand.The top brands in the world are worth billions. They are merely a design with brand value connected to it: Totally intangible. This made me go and look at the Interbrand ranking list again. I used their rankings in my studies at university and almost forgot what an interesting read it actually is. For t...

The New BMW X5 ? The SUV Benchmark
2007-06-01 11:00:00
With the new BMW X5, status and good sense comes standard. The old X5 was the benchmark against which every SUV (4x4) were measured. The new X5 raised the bar several yards higher. The car has exceptional off road capabilities and on road, the drive compares to that of a luxury sedan.In my eyes, the X5 has the same iconic status as the Mercedes S-Class: Always the leader of the bunch and buying any competitor?s product is just a compromise. Range Rover, The ML/GL, Suburbans and the Porsche Ceyenne all scores a distant second to the new behemoth.The styling screams mucho, but any woman driving it will score points in my book.Features that I like is the in window displays, the multi media and computer/ navigational system, the improved duel suspension for on- and off-road driving and the comfortable interior lay-out.The car oozes confidence and gives total peace-of-mind to the owners. The car, like it?s predecessor, will become a regular at country clubs, high-end fashion events, luxu...

Diana Carmichael ? Contemporary luxury tableware at it?s most creative

Two weeks ago I got an invitation to dine with one of the most influential men in the Internet world. He invited me and my girlfriend to dine in his lush penthouse apartment in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. His wife is a former model who also happens to be one of the most gracious hosts I?ve ever met. The night was definitely going to be memorable.I was dressed in my usual Dunhill suit and Hugo Boss tie and dished a small fortune to buy my girlfriend a new dress for the occasion. I needed this night to be perfect: A lot of money was riding on this deal.John and Cathy (not their real names) greeted us at the door and invited us into their beautifully furnished house. The penthouse is decorated in a wave of earthy tones with a dash of dark red ever so often. The dining room is spectacular: A dark mahogany table with the most interesting contemporary chairs. You could see they entertain quite regularly. We sat down for dinner at the table and I saw the one thing that was by far the...

Doing my research for Lifestyles of the Rich, I read many success stories: Rich people and their rags-to-riches stories. It makes for excellent reading. Then about two months ago I heard someone saying: "Study success and you will see new doors open in front of you".I have been reading about successful people and since then saw how simple the path to success really is. I've read about how a certain person made his fortune and a new idea popped into my head: A gap in the online market. I've since been hard at work and in this week have reaped the rewards!But I want to share what I've read:Visit Studying Success.

Lakshmi Mittal?s House ? The most expensive residential real estate deal ev
2007-05-04 16:38:00
Earlier we reported about Updown Court, the world?s most expensive house and Donald Trump ?s Florida Mansion, the most expensive house in the USA. Although these two mansions have the titles of being the most expensive houses, they still have to be sold. No body has ever paid that much ($139 million and $125 million respectively) for a residential building. Then who was the person that forked over the most amount of money in a residential real estate transaction?The answer is Lakshmi Mittal, the Indian steel tycoon and the world?s fifth richest billionaire. His London residence at 18-19 Kensington Palace Gardens was bought from Formula One Boss Bernie Ecclestone in 2004 for a staggering $114.89 million (£62.7 million). And for while the house held the Guinness World Record for the world?s most expensive house. The Mittal/ Ecclestone deal still hold the record as the biggest of its kind.Another interesting fact: Prince Talal Bin Waleed's palace racked up a construction bill of over $...

Another coveted Black Card: The Marquis Card ? Partial Private Jet Ownershi
2007-05-04 14:38:00
Okay, so if you think that maintaining a sports car is a hassle, try owning your own private jet. First you need to buy the plane, find expensive hanger space to store your plane, procure a pilot every time you want to fly, hire the service crew to get the plane ready for flight, get flight attendants and all the while swiping your credit card to pay for it all. Okay, so now you are in the air flying, you reach your destination and once again you have to manage the airport admin, and fly back. Then, how often do you really fly?Part ial ownership of a private Jet makes a lot of sense. And at the forefront of Jet consortiums is MarquisJet. Operating the fleet of NetJets, you get the choice of up to 10 different plane models, from 6 to 14 seaters, with brands like Gulfstream, Hawker, Cessna Citation and Falcon .All you have to do is get your Marquis Card , book a plane and arrive and fly away at a fraction of the operating cost of owning the Jet. Privacy is guaranteed and the hassle non-e...

A business associate of mine, Markus, and I had a very good meeting yesterday. He owns his own printing and distribution company and usually makes a good impression in front of potential clients, tailored in Hugo Boss suits, Ralph Lauren shoes and the Breitling watch. He walks into every room with an aura of success: He owns the room.But he usually does something in every meeting that makes it hard for me to fully concentrate: When he sits down, he takes his car keys out of his pocket and places it on the boardroom table in front of him. I cannot help to notice the keys... Yesterday it was Aston Martin keys. Strange thing is, at our first meeting back in January, the keys were those of a Ferrari and the time after that it was BMW. So obviously I started thinking the printing business must be doing reaaaaally good. Let's forget online, it pays to go offline!But yesterday I walked him to the car.

In the words of my father: ?To be successful, you have to visualize success now?.

Granted it was 2003 and she had not seen the new2006 X5! (But that is another future posting).

It should not come as a surprise that I follow the Forbes anual Billionaires ' list very closely. I follow the success stories of the people on the list and love to see how the list changes year-after-year. 2007 however, came as a huge shock to me: There are so many new faces to the top 10 and gone are some of the familiar ones.Out of contention are the Waltons (Wal-Mart). The late Sam Walton's estate is being enjoyed by his wife and children; however they are not able to keep abreast with the onslaught of the new entrepreneurs on the list. Gone is our favouite Russian billionaire, Roman Abramovich: He is going through the world's most expensive divorce!The biggest winner on the list is Amancio Ortega who came from nowhere to land in the 8th position.

I was reading a forum about people's opinion of the most expensive clothing brands available and a familiar name came up: John Lobb. We did a profile on the most expensive golf shoes in a previous post and since then, we've been getting a couple of Search engine hits on "John Lobb". I did some reasearch and found more than just a shoemaker company; I found a hidden Icon!When you are in London again, be sure to swing by St. James' Palace, built by Henry VIII: In one of the towers is the John Lobb store, said to be one of the most beautiful and interesting stores you'll ever visit. This has been the site where the British royal family have been buying their dress shoes for over 100 years. Often frequented by successful business men, looking for the ultimate name in dress shoes, this shop is said to be a jewel to the privileged. Understandably so; a pair of John Lobb shoes can set you back an average of $2000. Or as said in the previos post, their tailormade golf shoes, costs $5000...
