10 CEOs living the American dream
Recent studies suggest that there's less social and economic mobility in the United States than many people assume. But these business icons have defied the odds.

This guy (Sergey Brin) did NOT go from rags to riches. His mother was a NASA research scientist and his dad was a Math professor at College Park.
That's quite an acheivement for immigrants, given that most cannot even find work to begin with.
Please, what an insulting article.
Not every one wants to be a "CEO". Some of us just want to live a decent life, raise a family and have access decent healthcare....Im not impressed whith people who roase from the gutter and became rich. I lived on the streets till I was 27 and I have nothing to prove (like rap stars and CEO's) Its obviouse that I need wealthy people to create jobs and they need me to work at the jobs they create so they need me just as much as I need them.
Another note: work hard doesn't make you rich like somebody think. Some people work hard for the rest of their life, but they still poor, because they are missing talent and luck which is God gifted...Thanks.
WELL TO SAY THE LEAST GOOD MORNING AMERICA!!!!
I have been reading some of these entries and boy o boy. For those who have been entering comments about I AM SO LONELY, Guys please if you are loney is becouse one you have failed to make yourself happy, and who want a younger or older male that needs someone else to be happy. This actually ties in with the CEO commentary, Rich is really a state of mind, those who have achieved it wether by default or having a luck sign on them, hard, straight or by foul have set goals for themselves. If you are satisfied with you life and you work hard all your life but are happy there then that is your richness, you are the CEO of your life and you decide how far is how far.
There have been people who has won mega lotos, not once but twice and within ten years have lost it all. They have a poor men mentality. you can have it all and still feel poor, you will make poor choices, and loose it all in the end. or you will become successfull yet always feeling like something still missing hense the "I am lonely state of mind".
To those who have made it, GOOD FOR YOU, to those who are trying GOOD FOR YOU, to those who have said this is all I want to be GOOD FOR YOU, to those who have given up SHAME ON YOU. To those who say I am lonely, GET A PET.
People God is good, BE GREATFUL for what you do have, anything after that is making you rich already.
LIFE IS A WONDERFUL THING, DONT WASTE IT IN WHAT IFs.
This comes from a single mom of 4 girls, with no child support or state support, I have a kid graduating at MIT two more almost graduating from High School, the last graduated 8th grade.
What do i see? POTENTIAL
I could be bemoaning the fact that my ex is an irresponsible human being, or that i was not born with a silver spoon or hating those who have money becouse i dont. etc
thing is I do have money, i get a check at the end of my week and i make it happen. I make it work, and i even manage to save. What do I see? POTENTIAL
So folks do not belittle those who have worked hard, and yes some folks are not gratefull to those who have helped them get there, or they forget to be thankfull or help full and to those as well SHAME ON YOU, but there are those who do help there are those who make sacrifices for the people who work for them, there are those who do not forget that they have humble beguinings, and the beguining of a great nation has been a greatful and humble heart.,
Remember the last part of our pledge:
one Nation under God, indivisible, With Liberty and Justice for all.
what do I see here? POTENTIAL
I read the article on the outsourcing and layoffs at Xerox and this is typical of corporate america. When they are not making money, they trim the fat and this results in large layoff or buyouts. Ursula Burns is one of the lowest paid CEO's, girl you are getting played!!!!!
