There are a lot of successful businessmen or as we call it entrepreneurs who are as successful and well to do as others but have less recognition as compared to the rest and aren’t usually seen on the spotlight much often.

Would gamble, stay drunk, travelled between cities in his helicopters and what not. And then all of a sudden, he lost it all and went broke. He started losing million dollars in a week. In just a month, his bank account went from $15 million to $143. He had nowhere to live, no job, and no friends to turn to.
