“I wanna be a billionaire, so freakin’ bad“ … sings Bruno Mars. If that’s your dream, you might be interested in a groundbreaking 2019 study by four economists, “Capitalists in the Twenty-First Century.”

It looked at the more than 140,000 Americans who earn more than $1.58 million a year, and found that most rich people own their own business – but we’re not talking huge corporations like Amazon.

Most are what they called regional businesses, like a car dealership or a gas station. And the surprises don’t end there.

What’s makes us happy? Exercise, sex and gardening – not necessarily in that order.

– Vicki Locke, C2 Communications
