Michigan Company Paid Guy $600 Million – But He’s Kinda Bored Now
Peter Rahal is 33 years old. He lives in Miami, drives a Ferrari 488 and lives in a $19 million house with gold utensils in the drawers of the kitchen. And he can afford all that because he's very rich. But, even with all that money - he's a little bored, according to a story on Marker that shows what it's like to be uber-wealthy, overnight.
It's an amazing story. Peter got rich because the folks down in Battle Creek, at Kellogg, paid him $600 million to buy the Rx Bar nutrition bar company he and a friend started, in his mom's kitchen, in Chicago. He hated school because he has dyslexia and attention deficit disorder. “I was put in slow classes and labeled stupid and all that," he says. The two friends invented Rx Bars, sold them in CrossFit gyms to begin with and then expanded until they went looking for a buyer and Kellogg acquired the brand. Soon after, Peter was rich but didn't have to struggle to keep growing the business - or to do anything else for that matter.
So, what now? That's what Peter is dealing with. Better have a plan for when you win the Powerball.
