A nice and easy one for you today. Go down the street, walk into the newsagency and buy the BRW Rich 200.


Take it home. Read. Repeat.


Concentrate on the profiles of the 200 members of the rich. This is where you will pick up inspiration from the great success stores, tips about building a fortune and the latest trends in your sector.


I can’t tell you if you will read the Taskmaster’s name there – I fly pretty low under the radar these days, as you all know – but I will point you in the direction of some names to check out:

  • Brett Blundy, whose privately-owned retail empire continues to grow.
  • Nathan Tinkler, the youngest person on the list who is now a billionaire.
  • Jack Cowin, whose empire stretches across franchising and investment.
  • Chris Morris, who loves investing in early-stage tech companies.

These are just a few names – you’ll find plenty more that will grab your attention.


Get it done – today!
