24. Where The Issues Started For Bilzerian
Bilzerian built himself quite the reputation over the years with his excessive lifestyle, and now he’s in trouble for it. It’s also essential to let you know that he wasn’t someone who started from the ground up. Thanks to his father, he got a good start building his wealth. He had quite a hefty trust fund, which helped him to start his life. Instead of first using up his trust fund, he enlisted in the Armed Forces.
He did start Navy Seal training, but shortly after, his military career came to a crashing halt after a situation with a superior officer. But this wasn’t too much of an issue for Bilzerian since he was already very wealthy. He was embroiled in wealth his whole life. That meant he worked up a thirst for money.
