Here Are The 10 Richest Pennsylvanians… And How They Achieved Success

If you’ve ever wondered how much dough you’ll have to accumulate to become one of the richest people in Pennsylvania, the answer is about $2-3 billion. (We might start putting some of that Starbucks money back in the piggy bank.) Pennsylvania has some pretty high rolling businessmen, from the owner of Urban Outfitters, to the heiress of Campbell’s Soup, to entrepreneurs who hold stake in various sports teams within the state. The bad news is that most of the people on this list inherited a family fortune, so if that’s not the case with you, it will be a little harder to join their ranks… But not impossible if you have entrepreneurial skills and a good work ethic.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.
