People who become "Nouveau Riche"

Do you want to be a billionaire? Well, everyone wants to be a billionaire. It’s just the matter of how and when. To be a successful business man, you should have a determination and the courage in doing a business, believe in your idea and never underestimate what you can do, ask yourself if you are willing to make tough decisions for the growth of your company.

The world's self-made billionaires certainly have vision in spades, spanning everything from how computers work to how people shop. But the ability to see around corners isn't the only quality that separates the very accomplished from the stratospherically wealthy.

Nouveau riche (French for "new rich"), or new money, refers to a person who has acquired considerable wealth within his or her generation. This term is generally to emphasize that the individual was previously part of a lower socioeconomic rank, and that such wealth has provided the means for the acquisition of goods or luxuries that were previously unobtainable.

There’s this article that uncovers dozens of the most promising ventures of determined Billionaire entrepreneurs. A few of these ventures discuss individuals who are now “Nouveau Riche” because of their entrepreneurial ideas. These stories give the poor hope that they can rise to fame and wealth and become Nouveau Riche when the time comes.
