So, You Wanna Be a Billionaire? You May Be an Underachiever

That’s right, you’re probably shooting to low if you just want to be a billionaire.Analysts are predicting the world’s first trillionaire will be walking among us sooner than you think. Current predictions say that there will be eleven people worth more than $1 trillion in just two short generations.

How much money is that? Well the average American family has about $6,000 in savings. That’s a six with three zeros. $1 trillion is a one with twelve zeros. Here’s the comparison.

$6,000
$6,000,000,000,000

Beginning to get the idea?

If you want to keep up with the super rich, Forbes magazine has identified 1,826 billionaires. Combined they haven’t total net worth of about $7 trillion.

Keep in mind that Obama and the Democrats want to tax the rich to pay for their whims. If you took every penny of the world’s billionaires you wouldn’t even pay off the increase to the US national debt since Barack Obama has been in office.

There are forty-six billionaires still in their 20s and 30s. Among them are the founder of Uber, the developer of Rockstar Energy drinks, the founders of Snapchat, and a video game development.

An old guy still leads the pack. Bill Gates, at the ripe old age of fifty-nine, is at the top of the. He’s been the richest guy on the planet for sixteen of the past twenty-one years, first hitting the top at thirty-nine. Today Gates is worth $79.2 billion. We wonder how long he’s going to be able to hold that title?

If you made the Forbes list this year, how would it change your lifestyle?

Think about this. Russ Weiner is the guy who developed Rockstar Energy drinks. Here’s where he lives and note the cars parked in front of the house.

You’re probably thinking too small.

Oh, and if you think taxing the rich is going to solve America’s financial problems you’re just a fool.
