What Does Being Wealthy Mean, with Nike Anani


In this episode of Money Tales, our guest is Nike Anani. At 9 years old she went to the UK with her mom and brothers for what she was told was a summer vacation, but they never left. Nike’s dad stayed behind in Lagos, Nigeria to run the family business, and it wasn’t until she was in her 20s that she learned how extremely successful the family business was. Nike’s parents’ intentions of not sharing the scope of the business were good. They wanted their children to be focused, hardworking and self-motivated. However, as Nike explains, she didn’t grow up in a wealthy culture and found herself not knowing how to navigate life as a wealthy person.

Nike is an international award-winning entrepreneur, succession specialist and a legacy planning expert for future-focused business families. She is on a mission to help businesses move from lifetime to legacy, such that they build family enterprises of the future.

With over a decade of family enterprise expertise in Nigeria, Nike helps owners lead their family organizations to long- term legacy and impact. Her inside experience as a second-generation family business owner and family office pioneer birthed a passion to help other families in building enterprises that would outlive them.

Nike is the Author of “Lifetime to Legacy: A New Vision for Multigenerational Family Businesses” (to be released in Q2 2022). She is the co-founder of African Family Firms, a pan-African association of family businesses that is focused on promoting generational wealth and generational legacies on the African continent. She is the host of “The Connected Generation” podcast – a top-10 Family Business podcast globally that is dedicated to NextGens that are seeking how to navigate building generational enterprises whilst leaving an impact.

Nike has a global outlook, having lived and worked in three continents. She is a champion for diversity, passionate about improving age and gender diversity and inclusion in business families.
