Business Advice From Billionaires

If you want to learn about entrepreneurship, investing, and becoming wealthy, why not look to the top? This is a compilation of advice, videos, and books created or recommended by billionaires.

We don't hear much about billionaires from day to day. This is partly because there are so few of them (there are currently about 1,000 billionaires in terms of US dollars in the world, which is 0.000015% of the population) and partly because most of them keep a low profile. Luckily, some members of this elite group have offered some help to the rest of us.
