I believe that this article from MSN Money is better than most of CNN Money‘s “Millionaire in the Making” stories. This article profiles nine individuals and the stories behind their first million dollars. Only one of them has anything to do with real estate; they are mostly stories of taking a chance with an idea or changing course to try something difficult.
One individual in the group of nine stories took a chance by goong deep into credit card debt right out of college in order to launch a company that is apparently now the top provider of undergarments to the NFL and the Division I-A NCAA.
