Some people do have success in a business though. My father-in-law made $41mill. last year with his masonary contracting company. He has been doing it for more than 30 years-started out in Pennsylvania with one pickup and wheelbarrow and has never layed one brick. He made his fortune off of other people's backs. His favorite example is of the guy who started the Hershey factory-he failed 10 times before he got it right-I'll never forget that!!!!
