everywhere I look, there are rich people. There are people who could stop working today and do nothing for the rest of their lives. example: my cousin. I don't know too much about him because he is a very private person, but I know he owns like 3 apartment buildings (note: not 3 individual apartments, but apartment buildings), each building containing like 20 apartments...He probably owns more, but I only found 3 by doing a little investigation online. He is a doctor who makes probably $2000 a day just from his practice. oh, and he owns a couple of clinics. and he owns an optometry practice. I don't even know what motivation people like this have for working. why work when you have all the money you could ever need? how do you become really rich like this? PS the answer is not "have rich parents" I know for a fact this guy has received nothing from his parents.
