Ever felt like you’re too young to have accomplished anything in your life? Here is a list of people who have excelled in their chosen field, persevered, and risen to the top of their industry — or inherited a bucket of money from their parents — all before the age of 40.
7. Evan Spiegel and Bobby Murphy
Even Spiegel (25) and Robert Murphy (27) met at Stanford during their undergrad, and together founded the amazingly popular app Snapchat. Although they already had one failed app under their belts together, they worked diligently on Snapchat, even putting the bulk of their expenses on their personal credit cards when they had as many as 40,000 users on the app. They zealously guarded their idea, and refused to take money from venture capitalists who wanted to steal it. Now, their combined net worth is over $3 billion.
