Well, one things for certain, no matter what: you are not going to make billions. There's never a single person who makes the billions. The way to wealth is to find out how to help grow other people's wealth, or lead other people to prosperity and happiness. (Then, you mooch off them. ) For example, Bill Gates' Windows operating system ramped up the productivity of companies and individuals who used it. Gates didn't make the program himself, but had people working for him who did. He had salesmen and marketers who went out and sold the product. Etc. So, you've got to find a way to get others to make your billions for you. You've got to get in on the ground floor, be the boss, and then be hugely gigantically successful. Even then, you will almost certainly have to take that cash even if it's ginormous, and play the market like Buffet does in order to get billions.
