Born in Oregon as Timothy Blixseth in 1950, he grew up poverty-stricken and eventually made millions early in his twenties by buying and selling lumber and timberland at high profits. When lumber moguls intentionally took hits on his sales causing him to lose all his money, he went out to re-develop his fortune through strategic real estate investments in the state of Montana. Tim Blixseth graduated from high school in 1968 and spent only an hour at the Umpqua Community College before leaving to pursue a career in real estate business. Now, he is recognized as one of the richest people in the US. Aside from owning the Yellowstone Club resorts and golf courses, this billionaire also has worldwide properties, including castles in Europe.
