It’s true when they say that you can create your own destiny. Just because you were born poor, didn’t do well in school, had little connection, doesn’t mean you won’t make it big in the future.
Not all wealthy people grew up from a rich family. In fact, some of the most popular millionaires had humble beginnings. Here are ten millionaires who were very different people before boosting up their net worths.
1. Elon Musk
After learning how to program at the age of nine, Elon Musk sold his first startup at $307.00 at the age of 28. He founded PayPal when he was 30 years old, and opened Tesla Motors at age 32.
Elon Musk’s net worth: $22.7 billion
2. Bill Gates
Bill Gates did not have a plan when he was still studying at Harvard. He was even expelled after his second year. But at the age of 21, Bill and his friend Paul Allen founded their own company, Microsoft.
Bill Gates’ net worth: $96.7 billion
3. Kris Jenner
Kris Jenner is the ultimate momager. Although many people have dubbed the Kardashian/Jenner clan as popular and rich for being talentless, you really can’t deny the fact that Kris is an amazing businesswoman. Pre-babies, she worked as a flight attendant.
Kris Jenner’s net worth: $60 million
4. Larry Page and Sergey Brin
