Somizi grew up in a family with poor attitudes towards money.
“I grew up not respecting money,” he says. “Although I made my first million by the time I was 25, I wasted my money on expensive clothes and cars. I wanted to show that I was successful and to fit in with other successful people, but I had no investments. I’ve learnt my lesson and now I live within my means.”
PJ Powers says she had to learn to fend for herself financially when she told her parents that she would be a singer. “People expect you to live a life you can't afford,” she says, “but in our world we don't have the luxury of a regular monthly salary. I’ve learnt that if you respect money, it will respect you back.
"Money is the by-product of passion, not the other way around. We need to make people conscious of what money is, and what it isn't; how important it is, and how important it isn't,” she says.
