Everyone wants to be rich these days. When we dream about being rich, the only thing that comes in our mind is working our backs off and building an income which would eventually lead to a wealth of may be a million dollar in the next 20-30 years. But if we told you there are people out there who have a wealth of more than 1 billion dollar under the age of 40 without working and doing anything to earn it, it will certainly pique your interest.
