Norman Meier is the founder of the Wylie Foundation. The Wylie Foundation is a charity that helps animals in need. It supports other organizations and has its own individual projects. The main focus lies on helping cats and dogs but all animals in need will be helped.
Animals in need cannot ask for help. Unfortunately, there are still a lot of people that hurt, torture or kill animals for no reason. Others try to exploit animals and mistreat them right.
Some animals don’t get the attention or help that they should get. In some countries they are neglected and multiply with no control under the worst conditions.
Some companies in America still sell puppies in malls. Those dogs have to stand and sleep on metal grids and do not get the social interaction that they would need to develop properly. There are a lot of reasons to help animals!
Norman Meier has decided to help animals in need because that is where his heart belongs. Norman Meier states: “Wylie”, my late dog, was the love of my life. At only seven years of age he died of cancer. He died on my birthday, which was very sad. In his honor I have decided to create a charity to help animals.”
Making money and being successful can be a wonderful thing. However, you can only be fulfilled in your life if you do something good in the world. This world has provided me with a lot of abundance. And now it is time to give something back to the world.

In the financial world only money or things that can be turned into money are viewed as assets. Assets are a lot more, however. Assets are all the things that you can bring to the table. If you don’t have money it is not the end of the world. You have other things: creativity, willingness to work and time! Those things are also assets.
Your attitude and power to make things happen are the biggest assets that you have – not money!
You will create wealth out of your creativity and your thoughts. You need the willingness to do whatever is necessary and to believe in yourself. You have all you need in excess! Our biggest obstacle is not the scarcity of money. It is the scarcity of all the other factors! If your ideas are good the money will follow to where it is needed.
If we don’t believe in ourselves, we cannot expect others to believe in us.
(Ute Lauterbach – German actor)
