The Complete List of CNN Money’s Tycoons in the Making

Yesterday I presented the complete list of CNN Money's Millionaires in the Making. A series that began back in 2002. Sometime in early 2004, CNN Money decided to begin featuring profiles of people who were building a solid portfolio primarily in real estate, or Tycoons in the Making, as they called them.

While the Millionaire series had it's share of real estate wealth, most were true savers. This list of Tycoons is again presented in descending date order and is (best I can tell) a complete listing of the series profiles. Notice that the series ends in mid 2006. I wonder how many of these Tycoons are still “in the making?”
