How Did Billionaire Carlos Slim Become the Richest Man in the World?
The answer is that Carlos Slim did it the tried and true old-school way: deal-making. Deal-making is defined as the acquisition of many assets over a prolonged period of time. The intention is to increase the value of the assets so that they can at some point be sold off at a profit. Some are kept long-term because they are "cash cows," to reference the famous Boston Consulting Group portfolio matrix.
Rather than relying on any single idea to make them wealthy, most self-made billionaires develop cookie-cutter systems for doing lots of deals. The great news is that any business person can learn from them and develop their own system for accelerated growth.
It just requires the guts to take the first step. Surprisingly, most people don't even have enough to do that.
