I've read about many rags to riches and Nouveau Riche stories before. At first I didn't think it was possible for ordinary people to get rich and be successful until I saw it embodied in my own boss' life.

You see I work for a financial institution and currently assigned under the office of the BIG boss. Well, I consider him as Nouveau Riche since he was just a simple man of Chinese origin who sailed to this country with hopes of building some kind of business. I guess he didn't think that his dream of becoming Nouveau Riche would be realized so soon because they started out as really not so well off back then. And now, after some years of struggle, this man is now so successful that he is already one of the top 5 richest men in the country. He now has businesses in different industries such as banking, automobiles, real estate, manufacturing, leasing as well as health care and education. And to think his first business was only in flour milling! Wow. It is really incredible. His story never ceases to inspire me everyday because it only shows that through ingenuity and hard work, success if never far behind.
