Bill Gates, giving advice on what he would do if he had to be poor:

In the most recent Forbes assessment, the co-founder of Microsoft was found to be worth a staggering $89.3 billion.

The 62-year-old wouldn't have got to his fortunate position in life if he didn't have a plan in place.

Should his vast empire suddenly collapse and he is forced to live on say, $2 a day, he knows exactly what he would do.

In a blog post published on Gates Notes, the billionaire has revealed that he would raise chickens.

Gates' philanthropic work has seen him travel all over the globe and meet many people from various walks of life.

Of the poorest people he has encountered, he noticed that their lives were marginally improved by owning these cheap and easily sustainable birds.

Now we know where we have all been going wrong. Life's problems are so easily spotted and solved when you are a lofty multi-billionaire, getting ever richer by harnessing the skills and knowledges of many other people.
"...Wyrde saves oft the man undoomed
if he undaunted be....". (Beowulf).

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths... Beautiful people do not just happen". (Elisabeth Kubler-Ross).
