With regular articles on having the right attitude and positive wellbeing, such as “5 Attitude Lessons from a 92-Year-Old” Cag understands the importance of balance. “This industry is one of the most fast-paced and can make for an incredibly exciting and thrilling career. However, if we have learnt anything from our years in business it is that balance is the key to a successful company and a happy life.”

Derin Cag maintains that RichTopia will remain as a humanitarian venture, offering world class support for every socio-economic group. “As each year goes on, one more group of graduates and school-leavers are stuck with brilliant ideas but no idea where to turn, RichTopia wants to inspire new business founders to take that first step in to the industry.”
