Ross Perot Jr. is the chairman of The Perot Group and Hillwood and is well known for a great number of achievements—such as developing Alliance, Texas, and making the first circumnavigation around the world in a helicopter at the age of 23—just to name a few. He is the eldest of five children, and the only son. While his mom and sisters spoiled him, his father took him under his wings, teaching him to ride horses, hunt, and fly. “I kind of lived the American Dream with my parents,” he said about watching his father build a successful company and raising a strong family. But despite the success and growing up in the company of giants such as Steve Jobs, Frank Borman, Margaret Thatcher, and Ronald Regan, Ross never took for granted the values his father instilled in him—family over business, and helping others over success.
