It's no accident that Jeff Bezos built Amazon into one of today's most successful businesses, and that it has made him the richest person in the world, with a net worth of more than $94 billion.

What most of us don't know, however, is the memorable event in his youth that helped build the self-reliance and confidence he needed to become a multi-billionaire.

On November 4, Jeff Bezos was interviewed by his brother Mark at the Summit LA17 event in Los Angeles. During the course of the interview, Jeff told a shocking story about one summer he spent on his grandfather's ranch in south Texas.
