Wang Jianlin has one “small” tip for anyone looking to be wealthy — simply start by earning a hundred million Yuan.
The “small” target, which is equal to about $15 million, was set to encourage planning and to prevent people from being too aggressive, he told talk show host Chen Luyu earlier this month.
“You shouldn’t be that ambitious. Set a small target first, like earning 100 million yuan.”
Apparently, his word did not impress many. The anti-Disney businessman is worth $34 billion, so this pretty much explains what “small” meant to him.
Unfortunately, it went against everybody else’s interpretation. It did not take long before his statement went viral on social media, driving netizens nuts.
One commenter expressed (via ECNS):
“That’s one small step for Wang, but a giant leap for mankind.”
Another did the math:
“Now I understand, Wang’s wealth of 170 billion yuan is actually made up of 1,700 small targets.”
Wang is the founder and chairman of Dalian Wanda Group. His worth primarily hails from real estate, though he has ventured on the entertainment industry as of late. He plans to open 15 to 20 theme parks across China in the next around 2020.

His son, Wang Sicong, seems to be following his lead having opened a seven-star hotel back in June. Here’s how it looks like.
