If becoming one of the world’s richest people were easy, we’d all be doing it. Unfortunately, that is not the case, becoming a self-made billionaire involves taking an enormous amount of risk. Of the 100 richest people according to data from the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, 36 were born to humble households and 18 have no college degree whatsoever.  By taking risks, these individuals were able to build an empire.

As the infographic from shows, these individuals invested during hard times, bought companies that were all but ruined, adopted early trends, some got lucky and for the majority, their successful venture was not their first business.
