Forbes Listed Isabel Dos Santos As Africa’s Richest Female Businessman


2018 has been a harsh environment for Africa’s economy. It can be seen in The Forbes’ richest American list. There are four African billionaires who fell from the rankings and are removed from the list. It is not a surprising thing because Africa saw some of the harshest declines of shares and the devaluation of its currencies. Most of the assets of the richest people in Africa has shrunk in the past year, which made them fell or retained their position in Forbes’ list, except Angola’s most influential businesswoman, Isabel Dos Santos.

There are only two women in the Forbes’ Billionaires list, and one of them is Isabel Dos Santos. Her net worth was also down from $2.7 billion to $2.3 billion (€2.3 billion to €2 billion). This is due to the drop of the stock value from the companies that she handles, which are Galp, Nos, and Unitel (in which she owns 25% of the shares). However, even after the decline of stock prices, as well as the devaluation of the African currencies, her place in the Forbes’ Billionaire list went up from 9th place in 2017 to 8th place in 2018. The other woman in the list is Folorunsho Alakijada, which has a net worth of $1.1 billion or €95 million. Isabel Dos Santos also has the lowest decline in net worth, with only $0.4 billion declines.

According to the list, the richest person in Africa right now is Aliko Dangote from Nigeria and is the one who held the title for eight consecutive years. His net worth was down from $10.3 billion to $8.9 billion, which is one of the biggest declines in the list. All in all, the value of all net worth in the list is $68.7 billion, which is 8.88% down. We will see who will go down and who will go up in the list once again next year.

Isabel Dos Santos is a known investor and entrepreneur in the area of communications, constructions, finance, and media production. She established herself as an entrepreneur in 20 years and has been helping her country by integrating technology. She is also the daughter of the former Angolan president Jose Eduardo Dos Santos.

Vijay Eswaran on Changing The Inside to Change The Outside

When one asks Vijay Eswaran how to change his life, his response is something along the line of starting from the inside. One of the reasons that he says that it is important to start from the inside is that when one changes, then he is going to attract some changes. While a lot of the changes he attracts are going to be positive, he is also going to attract some negative changes and resistance. This is one of the reasons that the inner life is one of the most easiest ways to affect change. When one makes the right kind of change, then he is going to be on the right track to change.

One thing that Vijay Eswaran would say is that the best thing to do is to change for the life one wants instead of waiting for the desired life to come and then change. When people try to wait for things to change, they are in effect putting the cart before the horse. A better thing to do is think about one’s desires and think about what can be done in order to bring about the desires. This could be anything like starting a business.

One thing about starting a successful business is that it is so much better than being an employee for people who are looking for flexibility. For one thing, they have flexibility in the type of money they can make because of the unlimited earning potential. Also, passive income is one of the most attractive forms of income for people who gain significant amounts of it. One of the best things about starting a business is that it can be around the type of activity the business owner enjoys. As a matter of fact, some of the most successful business owners are also very satisfied with what they do.
