Forbes magazine profiles the rags-to-riches life of Michael Bordes who went from growing up in a 1960s Bronx household that made $15,000 a year to owning a commercial and residential builder company that now takes in $20 million.

Bordes, who is now 58-years-old and owns AA Jedson Company with his sons, grew up in a six-person household, or bungalow as he calls it, with a father who was a firefighter and had two extra jobs.
