Have any of you been rich, successful, and on top, then lost everything and had to rebuild your empire? Tell your story.

My dad was raking in >$500k and growing until he got wrapped up into a lawsuit. He thought he could easily win, but he ended up losing and owing >$4mil in legal fees. Also, his business growth slowed to a halt due to devoting most of his time to the case.

That was a few years back. Currently, he's "rebuilding his empire" and doing really good operating in niche markets. Helps that he's a smart guy.
