It is not quite common to find billionaire entrepreneurs who have made it big in drastically diverse sectors such as showbiz and real estate like Donald John Trump. The NY-based real estate developer made a name for himself by investing in profitable housing projects in and around Manhattan.
The opening of Grand Hyatt in 1980 made Trump famous and controversial at the same time. Much later in life, he forayed into small screen. His stint in ‘The Apprentice’, a hit NBC reality series, made him a popular figure.
Donald Trump has a rare talent of being successful. Though he began with his inherited rental housing business in Staten Island and Brooklyn, he started venturing outside middle-class centric business. With time, he dabbled in beauty pageants, airliners and reality television.
His success was not without the share of hurdles though. He had been embroiled in a number of lawsuits in his sprawling career. He is one of the very few big players in US real estate market who managed to bounce back from the downslide that started in 1990s. However, with his efforts and diversifications he managed to turn dwindling fortunes around. He was ranked 11th in the Forbes Celebrity 100 list.
