  • Hello, I have a question regarding the behaviour of wealthy rich men. During a party after a conference, they usually come and greet the performers or visitors or members of the conference. They exchange a few words, nod but give you their business cards with their names and telephone numbers(emails, etc). What to say or how to politely refuse the business card.

  • Upper Classes of Eastern Europe are imaginary. I used to work with a guy from Slovakia, he used to go to people with expensive cars and get his picture taken with them for his Facebook. He worked in a cafe, but wanted to look wealthy…. it was truly pathetic. ‘New money Riff Raff’ comes to mind.

  • Meaning of Affluent People:People with More Power,More Wealth and More Status so they need to be protected and kept safe compared to the a average man in the wilderness!Wow that was a revelation!

  • I am a firm believer in the old saying there is no one above you and no one below you in life give me genuineness and a good heart don’t care if you have money or affluence lol

  • I would say become good at horseback riding, golf, sail, tennis, ski, jetski….pilot your own plane or helicopter. Appreciate generousity and be respectful.

  • I once knew someone that I have to say I now realize was not someone that I should have been considering a friend. Many times I had to defend myself and my personal decisions because this person didn’t like the fact that I didn’t want to spend money everyday on lunches out, or would get upset that I had rearranged schedules so that myself, one of our other friend’s could all get together as a group and would constantly name drop high profile people they were related to. It got old quick, attention always had to be focused on them and I was tired of being yelled at for trying to do nice things for this person, and the thing that really got under my skin was when this person called me a liar to me face when I’m not. It was an awful, toxic friendship and I finally had to cut ties because the stress they created was causing me health problems. It was awful, and now I’m very aware of people who have these same tendencies and steer clear.

  • English isn’t my native language, can someone please explain what name-dropping is? I mean I looked it up on Google, yet it still doesn’t make sense to me. Most sites mentioned talking about famous people? I don’t get it:(

  • There is a doctor on you tube who name drops something fierce. He is well known in his own right but it totally takes away from wht he is trying to do. Everyone notices this. In fact it takes away from his platform. Too bad he does not realize this.

  • I think this fits us all, not only the afluente people. For me in my average joe’s life is just common sense. I do like your videos, I believe that there is always room for improvements in the way we conduct ourselves.

  • I like this lady’s advice when it can be applied to general situations. HOWEVER…..if someone does like me for my ORIGINAL SELF…..They can “kiss the sky” cuz baby….no way in Hades am I changing my God given original wonderful self to please a Narcissist… masochist with riches……I’d rather jump off golden gate bridge.
    No conformist for me, madam….omg…..BE YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!

  • Omg thank u so much 4 speaking about asking questions!!!! Even when people mean well its still uncomfortable 2 under a microscope! I click subscribe

  • Having been in billionaire and millionaire circles i can say anything too much is not good.
    The only one who should be nice and say yes every minute is the hired help. ��
    And how you treat hired help says a lot about your character. They are people with their own lives. Remember that always.
    That said be real and honest. My mother was a narcissist and it took a minute to find my real self. The lovely people i surrounded myself with were instrumental in my healing and self growth along with counseling. Traveling and even living in Germany for 3 years.
    Even if you don’t have these types of issues in your life just be real fake is easily recognized.
    Never drop names or of course never give anyones information out without express permission.

  • Just realising that it is actually a blessing to be an introvert who was forced to become more outgoing in my youth. I can be entertaining and outgoing but my natural self is more toned down and listener persona so I‘ll never make these mistakes by nature

  • I really agree with you on No. 2 just asking questions all the time makes the person you’re talking to feel really uncomfortable… I once went on a date with a guy who kept asking really basic questions and I felt like I was in an interrogation room. And because he kept asking questions, I got pretty bored and just tuned out… to conclude it’s always better to find a common interest and talk about that rather than playing that game!

  • Summary.
    Be interesting but don’t overwhelm people
    Be polite but don’t be boring
    Be interested in others but not intrusive. Crystal clear.

  • Dear Anna, I just wanted to know whether treating servants, waiters, or any kind of helpers in general disrespectfully approved and even fine by the affluent society? Thanks.

  • The Papparazzis need to watch your video. Haha they need to learn a thing or two from you. Particularly the guy who chases after Britney Spears hahahahah. I have a funny anekdote to share: It was in May 2019 when we visited a bird sanctuary with our Papa Dog Dave. Before we went on the vacation I watched a documentary film about Britney Spears and they showed the Papparazzi guy with his Huge microphone mounted on the top of his jeep facing forward. For some very strange synchronicity law of attraction at the bird sanctuary there was a fleet of jeeps with exactly the same Papparazzi microphone mounted on the front and guys hanging out of the open jeep with all kinds of outdoor film gear excited storming down a dirt road past our van and then I saw what they were chasing. It was not Britney Spears but this time it was an Eagle circling above the creeks. Then the Eagle came over to our van and the Papparazzi’s were jealous.

  • Regardless if coming from any background, You Never! Never give somebody’s phone number without asking them prior to this. Please don’t take it the wrong way, however you are also pretty plane and simple. There is no charisma nor fire in you.
    I have friends from all walks of life and the ones you classify affluent, they are an utterly different type than you are referring to. Despite they grew up with a silver spoon in their mouth.

  • I would have thought there were some major obvious signs: (1) you don’t have a pedigree name or your family doesn’t go back centuries, (2) you don’t have a family crest/coat of arms (3) you don’t inherit a large country pile (or seat), (4) you don’t grow up participating in upper class country pursuits like hunting, shooting, fishing, (5) you don’t have a solid set of elite connections, (6) you have to earn a salaried or waged living to buy a house or any other significant ticket item. These are the most solid signs of coming from the upper class. Money has little to do with it. A lot of rich people are cash poor (or a lot poorer than you’d imagine them to be). Most couldn’t care less about status symbols or looking chic and elegant. Instead, they slop around all day in scruffy country clothes and drive around in a beat up old Landrover. The only clue you have to their potential status, away from home, is their braying accent and upper class name.

  • Thank you so much for watching the video! If you would like to learn more about this topic, watch my other YouTube video 5 Things You Should NEVER Say To Rich People: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=su9r65J8dqs&list=PLLtTVHnRmkJmqG9CpBalo9ps0es6wB3MN

  • I think an important trait in associating with wealthy people is to be comfortable about the subject of money. To not be impressed by expensive goods/labels, they are simply nice, well-made and well designed items (and absolutely don’t label-drop! this is as bad as name-dropping). To not have either longing for, or anger with, people whose material existence is different from yours. And to be fine with not knowing something. I grew up in Beverly Hills in the 60’s and 70’s (my family is lower middle-class) and found that rich people are totally not impressed by wealth, rather are impressed by character and accomplishments. And it is important to be comfortable and happy with your own material existence if you want others to be happy to be with you.

  • *CanYou please do a video about how to have a good long lasting relationship with your mother-in law….i really need it ASAP. Stay safe. Your fan. Thank you. +Peace

  • Affluence doesn’t necessarily equal classy. Being affluent is being prosperous, moneyed, well off, has nothing to do with character. I know affluent assholes and poor but classy people.

  • Well… I learned if you don’t have nice to say…. Just zip it… Or less talk less mistake… This is not for everybody but it works for me…

  • What happens when you’re the one they keep asking questions to? I’m tired of answering strangers’ interrogations, but have no good way to slip away, because I don’t know who I may offend by not answering. I try to give polite answers and ask just as many questions, but that seems to encourage these people. It is very annoying so I tend to avoid socializing.

  • A rule that works in almost all instances: Don’t share information that isn’t yours to share. Show you respect boundaries so people can trust you.

  • Sometimes when you share your story without you being asked it appears you are bragging especially when your story could be considered as a highly attained status
