Albert van Wyk is well-known throughout South Africa as the @Millionaireat22. He is older now – but not that much at 25. After making his first million at the age of 22, Albert never looked back and currently owns businesses in tech, teaching/coaching and property.
We talk about the very basics including mindset, what he proposes you should read and why you should keep it simple at the start. My favourite quote from our chat:
“Don’t be a consumer and responder to everything. Rather be a creator of your own success.”
