The Richest People in the World

By on January 10, 2015 in ArticlesEntertainment

Who are the richest people in the world? Most wealthy people seem to have achieved their financial security in one of two ways, they were born into it, and have simply managed to hold on to the wealth and/or expand upon it, or they received a healthy infusion of capital from someone who was born with money, and then, using their own intelligence, expanded upon the nest egg.  While the stories of people who went from virtually nothing to owning an empire are highly publicized, they are actually not that common.  More often than not, it is the already high net worth individuals, and the people who convince these wealthy individuals to share some of their worth, that make the biggest bucks.  It is a tiny, rather exclusive inner circle.  Despite all this, of the top ten richest people in the world, six are self-made.  If you are not well off, but have aspirations of being wealthy beyond belief, you might want to speak with one of the billionaires on this list… or at least marry one of their children… or even someone on their staff.  Below are the 10 richest people in the world as of January 10th, 2015.  Love them, envy them, or hate them, but most importantly, study them closely.
