Bosses who never need to work any more, but go to the office anyway

Man, it must be nice. The private jet. The vacation homes. The savings account that exceeds the gross domestic product of Barbados.

Yes, when you fantasize about what it would be like to have a fortune worth billions, it's easy to picture a life of leisure.

You know that by posting this you are inviting all of the people with wealth-envy to post comments about how these people "made their money from the sweat of the working poor,etc".

I, for one, admire anyone who can parlay their talents into a personal fortune. I will never have a fortune like these people, but I don't begrudge them theirs.

These guys are amazing. If you had billions would you still go to work every day and put in untold hours every year? Something tells me I would not (but I don't have the choice, so who knows).
