Which Self-Made Millionaire are You Most Like?

  1. What was your first job?
  2. What was your biggest mistake?
  3. What is more important: the idea or the execution?
  4. What is your advice to young entrepreneurs?
  5. How many hours a day do you read?
  6. What motivates you?
  7. Is there any reason to get an MBA?
  8. What can’t you live without?
  9. What is the best part about being the boss?
  10. If you could be anything else, what would it be?

There are profiles of each of the top 400 richest Americans on Forbes too. And their profiles and answers to even more questions that what I mentioned above are there too. I’m ashamed to say that I don’t know who half these people are (hence the links).
