Money is not the measure of success..
But perceived success.

For example:
Most people are of the impression that if they were to become the next Jay Z, that they would have made it. But someone out of work and just about to become totally black listed out of Hollywood such as Lindsay Lohan is (In my honest opinion) so much closer to achieving success than all her others counterparts who show up on time,; take their clothes off in front of the cameras; fall in love with their co-stars until the next movie comes along, etc. Just saying, Just giving an example.
Thanks and good day

Well said, lol.
What would one do with that kind of money I wonder. Maybe it just goes round and round and round, and keeps making more money. Bravo!

This man sure knew the value of money at an early age and it has paid off. He must be very good with numbers. I like his philosophy too.

Very interesting interview. Mr. Slim seems like a very inteligent man who has some very grounded values. Buty let me ask this... How is that the "Richest Man in the World" comes from a third world country? A country were a majority of the population lives in or around the poverty line? How many of these people has he and his companies taken advantage of and still continue to do so to get where they are at? He employs 250K people and that is commendable, but how many of these people, besides the hand picket upper management, are making a decent liveable wage?

Don't get me wrong, good for him and his family, they don't ever have to worry about were their next meal is coming from. But what about the other people that he has had to step on to reach his foutune. I'm from Mexico and very proud of it, but it shameful that we have one individual that has amassed such a forune while millions other suffer in poverty and are forced to imigrate north in search of that coveted pie in the sky.

Now we know where America's going, millions are headed for poverty while we make them billionaires.

Larry is going that is good he understand that sometimes is time to go home and open the road to a youngest person, it is like a boxer after winning so many fights and fame have to retire in shame after been beated on.

Larry is smart and we should not feel sorry the understand that is time ot pack and retire spent some time with his family enjoying the money he earned and probably having a good time in Florida drinking run inside coconuts!
