Average Americans: Stories of “Ordinary” Success

  • Niall J. Gannon


In Investing Strategies, I shared the story of Dennis and Judy Jones who turned their life savings of $100,000 into a $3.6 billion company by the time they rang the closing bell of the New York Stock Exchange on August 30, 2000. The Jones’ tale of success, which brought them from the trailer they lived in as newlyweds to the upper echelons of wealth, is impressive; in fact, it is so spectacular, to bring us down to earth, I feel I should tell you a few stories about regular folks who achieved a more moderate success and how they did it.
