Jim Rogers is a rags-to-riches billionaire from Demopolis, Alabama, who once hired a Chinese governess to speak to his daughters only in Mandarin.

Going to Yale and his first job out of school was on Wall Street? Those are some 'rags'.

He was raised in a cardboard box in Demopolis, Alabama and lucky to have it, he was.
