    No, the best you can do starting from scratch is a small blue collar company (snow plows, land scaping, junk removal, moving, trucking, antique stores, fences, dog breeding, etc)
    if you're high IQ you're probably trying to minimize your expensed and cover it through some sort of internet business.

    Yes.
    The vast majority of them.
    https://www.cnbc.com/2019/09/26/majority-of-the-worlds-richest-people-are-self-made-says-new-report.html

    >Of those folks, 67.7% were self-made, while 23.7% had a combination of inherited and self-created wealth. Only 8.5% of global high-net-worth individuals were categorized as having completely inherited their wealth.

      Self made as in they received only a small loan of a million dollars, or access to one of the few mainframes in the country and the financial support to be able to invest years in learning skills with no immediate returns

          Unironically turning a million or 3 into a billion is still a huge feat. That's like saying it should be simple for anyone to turn 1k into 1m

      This is such a fucking cucked cocksucker opinion piece it blows my mind my fellow Americans read this shit and think they are being informed.

      90% of people in the fuck you money upper class is born into it. This fucking opinion piece tries to frame this shit as inheritance vs make it yourself. No mention of mommy and daddy being able to give you money to invest in shit. No mention of mommy and daddy having high quality connections due to being rich.

      Just "lots of wealthy peoples parent's didn't die before they got rich" is all this article says.

      What a fucking smoothbrained cocksucking moron you are bro. Just show em an article from a fucking freelance CNBC writer that'll show em!!

      No, it doesn't; the categories in your post refer only to inherited wealth, individuals such as Musk or Trump who didn't actually inherit anything but were only able to accomplish what they did through real financial support from their parents to get the business off the ground are lumped in as being "self-made".

          >inherited definition:
          >inherited money or property has been given to someone when the previous owner died

          >died

          Elon Musk's parents haven't died, he has inherited nothing from them, he would be categorized as self made and not inherited wealth and yet the only reason he was able to start PayPal and become a billionaire was because his daddy owns a diamond mine

          Idk if Trump inherited a significant amount from his parents but a small loan of a million dollars from his dad wouldn't count as inherited wealth either

            His dad didn't own a diamond mine, he was a property developer, and once co-owned an emerald mine, not in South Africa but in Zambia, this provided for the lavish life of his family.

    I don't know about billions of dollars made but I know there have been some inventions that made people a lot of money. The as seen on tv devices being invented by someone is a money maker. These days such items are more often than not made up by corporations. Historically up through the 1980s and into the 1990s quite a few of these items were invented and sold by individuals. One example I know of was I met someone at a party one time who had a member of the family that came up with an idea and marketed a device that cut an onion so that it could be battered and deep fried like Outback Steakhouse's blooming onion. The dude patented it, had it manufactured and sold it late night and during soap operas in the afternoon in tv commercials. He wasn't a billionaire but he did make millions in the 1980s and into the 1990s. He was basically set for life because he came up with a kitchen gadget.

    When I look back at the most successful people in my HS graduating class, the majority of them took over their family business, or their parents were local politicians. You don't really see anybody making it from zero.
