How long would it take you to earn a billionaire's fortune? Average UK worker needs 300,000 years to earn the wealth of the richest Briton

British workers on an average salary would need to toil away for 348,063 years to earn the fortune of their wealthiest compatriot, a new study suggests.

While the gulf between the world's wealthiest 1 per cent and the rest of us is widening, the time it would take for average earners to earn a billionaire's fortune varies significantly depending on the country, business products  and services marketplace Expert Marketsaid.  

In Brazil, where the average worker's wage is £1.95 an hour, it would take a worker there over five million years to reach the £19billion fortune of Brazilian billionaire Jorge Paulo Lemann.

that's a long ass time.. guess ill be poor forever Chuckle
I've often wondered how I could even become a millionaire at my age. My options:

1. Work my butt off and save every penny...but with what I earn and having 3 kids that won't be happening before I kill over
2. Come up with some clever idea or invention that takes off and makes me a millionaire.
3. Win it
4. Inherit some money then invest it until I'm a millionaire.
5. Take what little I have in savings, become a day trader (which I know nothing about or have any interest in doing) and hopefully become very successful
6. Some random person gives me a few million dollars

I'm leaving work now to go to the bar :(, anyone want to join me...?
