Everyone has a natural skill set or an ability to solve a problem in one area that feels like no work at all. The trick is to figure out that area. Financial educator and entrepreneur Hither Mann is a woman who has figured out what she enjoys doing and monetized it.
Hither Mann is an entrepreneur, business coach, executive mentor and the CEO and founder of Fortune Academy. She moved to the French Riviera, Monaco of Southern France, three years ago from the UK to pursue her business ventures further.
Hither has always set her sights on entrepreneurship; since 2004, she has been making money through property investments, building a buy to let portfolio while supplying UK auction houses with properties, and financial trading after 2008. “To be frank, I was doing very well on my own and with my private ventures,” she expressed.
The year 2012, however, proved to be the turning point for her because her participation in the National Achievers Congress in London Excel exposed her to the shocking reality that there was a lack of female representation on the big stages where business and money were discussed. Hither was then told that regardless of what she observed, if she wanted to see any changes in the industry, she had to be the change herself. Already equipped with her success as an entrepreneur, she became the first female trader and educator on the international speaking circuit in 2013, and she never looked back since. “My vision has always been to be that female leader in the business and financial world because it was so lacking in my life. I had no female role models whatsoever, and I genuinely think this is a major area of concern,” she explained passionately.
The Billionaire Project, which is a much more recent venture through her company Fortune Academy, was established to help women and men play the big game without an investment banking background. Her experience in the private banking world and the investment banking world has shown that one can actually make the returns that these incredible bankers make without having had the formal education through the roots traditional banking takes.
The Billionaire Project is a project that allows a handpicked client base to leverage Hither’s network of private bankers, managing directors of tier 1 banks, hedge fund owners, and many financial institutions that would help raise finance into projects they are working on. Her extensive network has existed since 2004, and the goal is to exit these companies at the $1 billion mark as the minimum through private equity, IPO listing, or a SPAC listing.
On how her brand is different from others, she said, “The underlying reason why I feel my business is so special is because I’ve never come across a female based education platform that specializes in financial trading and business to the level I provide at Fortune Academy and especially at the Billionaire Project. I know that I have changed so many female lives through mentoring and coaching and I continue to do so.”
Since 2013 Hither Mann has spoken in many of the European countries about financial trading and wealth management for the retail audience. She is honored to have mentees from the United States, South Africa, Dubai, Malaysia, Singapore, and Australia attend her events in London, and it has been an incredible honor to mentor them to new financial heights.
Away from business, Hither said, “My daily life involves an incredible ocean view and mountains where my home office is located and in that environment I find I am best with my business and trading decisions.”
