America has long since held a reputation for being the land of opportunity. Although it’s still a relatively young country, the Land of the Free has helped many families prosper and grow across multiple industries. While young up-and-coming entrepreneurs are still on the rise, America is home to some very wealthy dynasties that have been around for years.
