Travie McCoy is rapping your song: ‘I wanna be a billionaire so freakin’ bad, buy all the things I never had. Uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine, smiling next to Oprah and the Queen…’ However you may express your personal aspirations, the boldness of these lyrics rings true - your corporate dreams and success goals are of titanic proportions. Canvas wall art is simply a reminder that you, too, can be featured on the cover of Forbes magazine.
Just look real close at the canvas wall art. Who do you see? Exactly! A group of misfits who aren’t even real. Let that sink in for a moment. Four fictional, oddball characters appear on Forbes Magazine and have only one thing in common - they are all filthy stinkin’ rich!
Stories precede dollar signs
But the lesson is not in their bank balance statements. Rather, it’s in their stories, which is why they have been immortalized on canvas wall art. Each one’s unique path to becoming a billionaire tycoon is paved with a different tale.
The fact that each one’s story is so strikingly different is great news because wall art suddenly becomes the muse and motivation to your story hitting the headlines.
Your entrepreneurial story matters!
The mismatched contexts of Monty Burns, Richie $ Rich, Scrooge McDuck and Uncle Pennybags area bag of liquorice allsorts. They are certainly an unlikely foursome - and yet that is what makes them so fascinating and our canvas art so inspirational.
Dollar signs inspire stories
You see, the disparate success stories of each of these billionaire characters are the sole inspiration you need for Forbes journalists to pick you up on their newsworthy radar and bug you for an interview and photoshoot - it is merely a matter of time.
It doesn’t matter which one of these canvas art characters you are, or whose story you can relate to - the villainous boss, the rich kid in the comics, the penny-pinching Disney character, or the iconic Monopoly mascot - the fact is you have a real story, not a fictional one, and your ambition can extend way beyond the lyrics of a rap song.
Do you have a story to tell?
Well then, what are you waiting for?
Scrooge McDuck - The story of the ‘underdog’
Just like wall art, Forbes magazine loves a ‘rags to riches’ story. The underdog who has triumphed from the gutter is a great motivator for a majority of dreamers and go-getters. And that most likely includes you. Scrooge McDuck tells us it is possible. The richest duck in the world was not born into wealth - he quit school at an early age and has no formal education. Rather, his sharp mind and readiness to learn new skills helped him overcome his poor start in life.
Scrooge’s story could be your story, and your future could see you diving head first into money.
Montgomery Burns - The story of the ‘antihero’
The editors at Forbes magazine cannot ignore the power-hungry boss with a ‘villainous’ streak. These influencers are controversial, but there is no denying their success and power. You may not respect them, but you have to acknowledge their grit, spunk, and undeniable wealth.
That is why Montgomery Burns, recognised as one of the greatest and richest villains of our time, is featured on our canvas art. As Homer Simpson’s devious, greedy and wealthy boss, and the owner of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, he steeples his fingers in sinister delight and smirks his trademark expression, ‘Excellent,’ as he looks down his nose at all the little people who are his employees.
We are not suggesting you become an intimidating, nefarious ‘bully boss,’ but these bold, counter-cultural influencers are can teach us a lesson or two. They are no pushovers and they will do whatever it takes to get what they want. They may not be liked, but they are certainly the anti-hero influencer that cannot be ignored.
Richie $ Rich - The story of the ‘silver spoon philanthropist
‘Admit it, it’s easy to hate rich, entitled kids who flaunt Daddy’s money and live the decadent, spoilt high life. Forbes hates them as well. What Forbes does salute, however, is the non-stereotypical philanthropic bios of those who realise that their silver spoon existence was meant for greater things - like Riche Rich. Renowned for being kind and charitable, his fantastic wealth does not allow him to be associated with negative stereotypes.
If you were born into money, our canvas wall art reminds you that you have an altruistic and philanthropic duty to make the world a better place by using the financial resources you may have inherited.
Uncle Pennybags - The story of the ‘self-made’ tycoon
The bios of shrewd, relentless business pioneers are aplenty. They don’t choose the limelight, but Forbes has a way of finding them and drawing out the success principles of their empires. Uncle Pennybags, or Mr Monopoly, may well represent the caricature of a boring financier, banker or property developer, but his status as a successful business tycoon has catapulted him onto Forbes’ Fictional 15 List and onto our wall art.
Age has nothing to do with your potential to make it onto Forbes magazine. They have a ‘30 under 30’ list and a ‘50 over 50’ list.
The Inktuitive story
At Inktuitive, our canvas wall art celebrates any list you may aspire to be on.
Hanging our Forbes piece of art in your space reinforces the reality that it is never too early, and it is never too late, to build your financial empire and share your unique billionaire story with Forbes magazine.
