How did he do it? Rich Father.

Turner' s media empire began with his father' s billboard business which he took over at the age of 24 after his father' s suicide.The billboard business, Turner Outdoor Advertising, was worth approximately $1 million when Turner took it over in 1963. Purchase of an Atlanta UHF station in 1970 began the assemblage of the Turner Broadcasting System.

How can you do it? Well-executed ambition or a wealthy mentor, who treats you like the son he never had.
