“A family friend retired after being a COBOL programmer for 30 years. About two years after his retirement, a company came to him and said, “Name your salary,” he requested around $1.5 million/year. He was hired on the spot and still works there.”

“The wealthiest person I know (and hang out with regularly) built a company (Information And Technology Services) and then sold it for several hundred million dollars.

He now runs a company that does the same services in a different field. He figured out a winning business formula and repeated it in a foreign market.”

“Pig farmer. I am not joking. He’s my father’s old friend. I visited him once when my father and I passed through the state. He lives in a modest classic farmhouse with his wife, both in their seventies.

I mentioned I was starting a school in West Africa as we were catching up. A few weeks later, I got a text asking how much it would cost. I told him $40k, thinking it was nice of him if he wanted to send a few dollars.

I got a check for $40k. I thought it would take me years to raise that. I’m typing this from Sierra Leone because he also paid for the house I thought would take years to raise funds for.”

“It’s a guy I work with. He started with one Jimmy John’s franchise and turned it into ten franchises. I ran them for ten years, then sold them all and dumped the money into the stock market and real estate. He did this all while working as an airline pilot, currently still working at the airline. This guy owns and flies his private jet on top of all that.”

“They inherited a huge corporation. They don’t have to mess it up. The founder’s grandson currently runs it; he has a sister and a brother. They own ten auto dealerships and other things like a winery. 

The grandson told me in a meeting once that he knows he’d be working in a bank or as an accountant or something if he wasn’t born into the family.”

“My ex-father-in-law. They used to own a huge factory that made Nike and Adidas shoes in the 80s and early 90s. Big sneaker companies don’t make any of the actual shoes. They design them and outsource them to an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) manufacturing plant in Asia). 

Then they pivoted to real estate investments/developments (imagine having the dollars to buy real estate and land at the 80s and 90s prices), and the land is now worth $150 million+.

He is a complete hypocrite and a sociopath, though. He treated service workers like slaves, was rude to them and was generally unpleasant to be around. He’s rich, but he always seemed unhappy.”

“My grandpa was the wealthiest person I have ever known. He founded a business (with two other guys) in New York that sold modular homes. I remember visiting him when I was super young, and he had a very sizable house with quite a few acres out back for growing grapes. Yes, he had a sprawling vineyard out back.

Unfortunately, my grandma got sick and had to be put on dialysis. Her medical treatment practically siphoned all the money my grandpa ever had. He lives in a trailer now. American healthcare at its finest.”
