42. saw one from the sidelines...
my wife's family-

her father awhile back founded a stereo store, and then took his brother as a partner- my f-i-l got tired of retail, and gave his brother the business, keeping a share for himself, and then started another company, this one manufacturing headsets/headphones/systems...meanwhile, over the years brother grows the little stereo store into a regional chain of high-end audio stores. his daughter and younger son work for the business. when my wife's uncle died, the older son moved in, took over the audio store business- and paid himself an extremely high salary to do so...and now it's ALL gone.
however- my wife and her siblings all got nice little trust fund accounts when their uncle died- they ended up 'doing better' than their uncles own daughter and younger son, due to the malfeasance of the older prodigal.
