Witnessing the effect the Formula for Riches® has had on people from differing countries, genders and educational levels inspired him to complete his PhD on “Applying The Formula For Wealth Creation To Develop Entrepreneurs And Investors”. He took on a personal challenge to use the Formula for Riches® to liberate people from pervasive myths like “you must have money to make money”; “you must make use of financial institutions, because you can’t do it on your own” and “you have to be lucky, well-connected, well-educated, or exceptionally talented to become wealthy”.
To disprove these damaging myths, Hannes took less than 12 cents and turned it into an investment of over $1,400.000.00 in less than two and a half years. The entire process was documented for his students through his Mentoring Course. He is the founder and CEO of the Wealth Creators University™, a private outcome-based learning institute, based on the culmination of 27 years of knowledge, experience, research and study into finance, economics, psychology and philosophy.
