This year's 14th annual list of Young Millionaires includes the best and brightest young business owners we could find. These19 enterprising entrepreneurs have some of the best success stories we've come across.
So what does it take to make the list? Entrepreneurs have to be under 40, own a company that makes more than $1 million in sales and have that something extra that causes them to shine amongst their peers. This year, as in years past, our young millionaires run the gamut, but whether they're producing films or offering prison health care, selling bobbleheads or creating designer furniture, their inspirational stories will add fuel to your own entrepreneurial fire.
