Music, films, TV, computer games, Youtube channels, good old- fashion reading or whatever form of entertainment people dream in the future;
these are always going to be a big part of our lives so shouldn’t come as a surprise that four percent 4% of billionaire made their money in this field and social media means if you’re an entertainer it’s never been easier to create a platform and brand yourself.
People who made their billions from entertainment include Oprah Winfrey and Jay z and they both demonstrate that for entertainers to get to the ranks of the super-rich it helps to branch out from your core activity.
In Oprah’s case publishing and Jay-Z’s fashion. You can earn billions.
ENGINEERING: 10% of billionaires come from this sector and to join them you’ll only need to design a piece of engineering wizardly that can solve a problem that nobodies addressed before.
The one that’s clever enough to disrupt an entire sector of the market a case in point is James Dyson who invented the world’s first bagless vacuum cleaner and since then he’s branched out to a range of other appliances including washing machines and hand dryers and thanks to the pieces of savvy engineering he’s worth $16 BILLION dollars, making him the UK’s richest individual.

One of our most basic needs is to stay healthy and we pay huge amounts of money on it whether directly on health bills through taxes or on health insurance.
A large portion of this money it way into the bank balances of 6% of the world’s billionaire and it’s no surprise that the pandemic has lifted more people in this industry to billionaire status and sure being a doctor can make you wealthy but billionaire probably not the real potential for 10-digit bank balances in the pharmaceutical industry or designing innovation medical devices or founding a chain of private hospitals or clinics.

Whether we do it online or we do it the old-fashion way in brick-and-mortar shops but we all need to keep on buying stuff one way or another so it’s no wonder that this takes a high place on our list accounting for 6.5% OF BILLIONAIRES.
Keep in mind it’ll probably produce fewer billionaires in the future that’s because most billionaires in this sector are heirs to fortunes that were built up over a long period of time like the 7 members of Walton family heirs to the Walmart fortune or the Albrecht family who inherited the Aldi business empire and what about the sector that’s taking it over online retail giants like Amazon are classed as tech and business services which we’ll be hearing about later.
Whatever is happening in the world we will always need to eat and drink and currently, so around 8% of the world’s billionaires come from a food or drink background to become one of them you’ll need to figure out novel ways of producing food or preparing and distributing it.
People on the super-rich list in this field including heirs to fortunes including members of the Mara’s and Heineken families but there are also quite a few self-made billionaires in this groups like KFC, MC DONALDS, Thailand’s DAN and CHARA VANNA who expanded his father’s shop into a farming empire worth $15 billion dollars, ZONG QUINGHOU his worth $12 billion dollars.
Whatever the sector of the economy nowadays it relies on tech businesses use to transactions to communicate their message to public distribution and logistics and much much more and of course our private lives depend on tech too.
To be entertained to chat to shop or to hail a rideshare and 9% of BILLIONAIRES have made their fortunes in tech and if that number is going to change it’s probably going upwards.
New software and hardware is being developed and making previous versions obsolete faster than ever and with the arrival of 5G and the opportunities it’ll bring it looks like this is going to keep on accelerating.

Banking and Finance: think of any hugely successful company in any industry behind that success there was somebody who knew exactly how to deploy the money and grow it and thanks to their investment choices they didn’t just make that company a success they also grew their own wealth big-time.
Banking and finance produced 15% of the word’s billionaires today some of them made it as private investors other from setting up investment firms and others as venture capitalists Warren Buffet is known by many as the world’s greatest investors and with a net worth of $90 Billion Dollars he is currently the fourth richest person in the world.
