The world has no dearth of Millionaires who are able to afford most luxuries that this materialistic world has to offer. The famous saying ‘Nobody became rich by doing a 9-to-5 job’ is so true in the cases of these eminent personalities who are hailed as millionaires today. Many of these individuals are entrepreneurs who were brave enough to get out of their comfort zones and test unchartered waters. While some of these big guns have interesting ‘rags-to-riches’ life stories, a few others were even lucky enough to inherit wealth worth millions. American businessmen John Rockefeller and Henry Ford were two famous millionaires who not only brought about a revolution in the United States, but also contributed immensely towards the welfare of the underprivileged. Many young entrepreneurs of today have garnered wealth worth millions, thanks to the overnight successes of their enterprises. If a popular website is to be believed, Andrew Mason, Mathew Mullenwag and Blake Ross are a few of these young millionaires. Some other noteworthy millionaires who are popular globally are ‘Facebook’ founder Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates – The Founder of the multi-billion dollar ‘Microsoft’ corporation and Warren Buffet. The renowned magazine ‘Forbes’ has often listed Bill Gates as the richest man on the planet. According to a popular internet source, the Microsoft founder’s net worth is now estimated to be a whopping $85 Billion. This list consists of several other millionaires who have proved that hard work, passion and dedication always leads to success.
