Two types of richest businessmen exist - those who inherited their wealth and those who built it from nothing. Some people were fortunate to be born with the silver spoon while others have to work their way to earn their living and be on top of their game, especially those with the rags-to-riches stories or the self-made billionaires. In the world of business, one can have different or similar experience with the others. Regardless of where they came from or how they acquired their fortune, the richest businessmen of today have different stories to tell on how they succeeded in their specific fields.
