    It is very inspiring to know that most of the individuals who are considered as the richest creatures belong to the world of business. Basically they are considered wealthy not because they attained the highest education but its because they passionately do business. Business is the only way to achieve prosperity!

    It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle that for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God (Mark 10:25).
