These 6 billionaires started out with pretty unglamorous jobs.
Oprah Winfrey, whose net worth is around $2.8 billion, worked at a local grocery store in Nashville. By age 16, she got a new job reading the news at a radio station.
Mark Cuban, who has a new worth of $4.05 billion, started out as a garbage bag salesman who went door-to-door trying to sell his wares. It was the job his dad gave him when he was 12 years old.
Richard Branson, whose net worth is around $5.6 billion, used to be a budgie breeder. At age 11, he started breeding and selling the cute colorful birds to classmates.
Elon Musk, who has a net worth of $19.7 billion taught himself how to program when he was 9 years old and sold his first game by the age of 12. In his teens, he took a job as a janitor at a lumber mill, but eventually went on to found Tesla and SpaceX.
Warren Buffet who has a net worth of $83.3 billion, used to be a newspaper delivery boy way back when. At age 13, Buffett was running his own newspaper delivery business — he even reportedly deducted his bike from his taxes that year.
Bill Gates, with a staggering net worth of $90.9 billion started out as a programmer and was only 15 years old when he got his first gig at TRW Inc. He later went on to drop out of Harvard and create Microsoft.
