Charles Koch is definitely one of the richest people in the entire world. He is credited for having developed an empire worth billions of dollars across the United States of America. In addition Charles Koch actively runs a company which is considered to have the largest percentage of private ownership in the United States. The billionaire, who is also the author of one of the most best selling books titled “Good Profit” however prefers keeping his personal life very private and out of the public eye as much as possible. You can call it being very secretive considering how much the public is interested in the family.
There was a time that a particular group of ABC news journalists caught up with Charles Koch at his company’s headquarters which is located in Wichita, Kansas. Here, they were given a rare treat when Koch gave them a glimpse into his personal life story. He went further to explain some of the most important values that have both shaped and informed his lucrative business career and his involvement in political activities to a significant degree.
During that time, he talked to The Wall Street Journal about a given framed letter; a letter he says was apparently left to him in his office by his late father before he passed on. It is perhaps what was in this letter that interesting. According to Charles Koch claims, this letter , contained a detailed outline of the best approach that his father would have liked him and his siblings to adopt in the managing and running the family properties and businesses that were left for them. Charles Koch had several reflections in his personal, business and political life where the letter not only guided some of the most important decisions but also several actions that he took. It is here that his relationship with his siblings is brought to light, and perhaps a light is shed on one of the many attributes of the old man. This happens when Charles Koch made a rare admission that if his father could be alive at the moment, he would be surely horrified of how the letter that he left him resulted in a feud which in turn split him far apart from most of his siblings.
