China counts a growing number of billionaires and Shaun Rein summarizes three key lessons an – anonymous – billionaire friend learned him. He writes it up in Forbes.
Sharing is the main lesson Shaun Rein learned from the man he baptized Mr. Chen:
Mr. Chen believes in sharing wealth. He lets business partners make more than he does, so that the next time they secure a good deal they’ll think of working with him first. He sees no point in ever trying to shortchange business partners. … Chen built a fortune out of dogged determination and a reputation for being assiduously honest, fair and respectful. He sees no reason why the same shouldn’t work for anyone else. As he told me once, “If I can do it with as little as I had growing up, anyone can do it.”
