"retirement accounts" were to a large part the equity in their business. These people have all found niches that they could exploit and all worked hard.

finding the right 'niche' is a kind of genius..

just remember that for every guy who was interesting enough to make it in the book, there's probably two dozen boring guys like me:

found niche i thought i could exploit and worked very very hard. and at the end, i was 40k in debt, had decimated the IRA and was thinking about moving back in with Mom.
i know i made misktakes, and i don't regret the attempt.

but books about all the failures don't sell .
