Then we have all those who have become rich by mere accident.
Take the example of a poor Swedish student, he sat down and programmed a program so that he could make free phone calls to their friends.
The program is called Skype and a company bought it from him for only 30 billion Swedish kronor and his intention from the beginning was not to make money on the program, the intention was just beginning to save some money on phone calls.
Another Swedish had been so bad with money, he decided to build his own Caravan.
Then came a person who wanted to buy his caravan and because he needed some money so he sold it and started building a new caravan.
Then there was yet another who wanted to buy the caravan etc, so he rented a room and began to build several caravans at the same time, presumably to be sure to get a caravan over to himself.
This company then came to be called Polarvagnen and became a very large company, then he wasted the money away and the whole company of some stupid business and ended up in big dept.
So you could say that some have become rich by more or less pure mistake.
I hope (and probably also davidbugs ) to do a '' such '' mistakes in life and any time soon then.
