9. Jin Sook & Do Won Chang – Net Worth $4.5 Billion

When South Korean couple Jin Sook and Do Won Chang moved to America in 1981, they had nothing. At one point Do Won was working three jobs just to keep a roof over their heads. In 1984, the couple opened Fashion 21, a clothing store that locked down $700 grand in its first year in business. Today, the popular store, now known as Forever 21, is a privately held chain with more than 700 locations across four continents. In 2014, the company reportedly made more than $4.4 billion.
