The Real Success Story: Just a few years ago, Carlos Slim reigned as the richest person in the world, but he’s still pretty much doing fine with a net worth of $72 billion. Helu is known to have struck gold from America Movil, the telephone service that connects most of Latin America.
His true success story probably lies in his modest way of life. Since striking it rich, he still live in the same six bedroom house for 40 years.
