    2. They got lucky: Lotto, or some other windfall.

    3. Hard work. This is somewhat outdated now, however, as some people subscribe to the thought of "work smarter NOT harder". But there is also the saying, "there is no substitute for hard work"

    4. They are very smart: Think mark zuckerberg and the google guys. These guys would be rich no matter what they did.

    5. In the right place at the right time: Another luck factor. Would facebook ever have been born had Zuck not been at Harvard?...

    6. They have family thats been in a business for years. They work in the business and learn the skills to take it over or start their own operation. Family can also be good mentors as they dont normally charge their kids for advice.

    7. They have a mentor (no family relation) that brings them in and shows them the ropes.

    Everyone's story most likely falls somewhere within these 7.

    Basically it breaks down two ways: A) If your kinda smart (average) you'll have to work harder than everyone else who's smarter than you. You'll need more money as well to pay other people to help you. What if Zuck had the idea for facebook but didn't know how to code worth a damn?....I wonder how much it would have ran him to get facebook up... B) Your real smart. In this case, people and money will probably be attracted to you and you'll have the ability to get off the ground to some degree till outside funding is needed.
    100% true
