another millionaire next door

Here is a great example of someone living by the principles in the Millionaire Next Door book.* This guy was a small-business owner who lived very simply and ended up giving away millions in his old age.*

"He made his hidden fortune in the stock market, carefully investing his hard-earned money over the course of his lifetime. The sole luxury in his unadorned flat, situated directly above Kaminski Meats, was the computer that he used to track his investments."

Re: another millionaire next door

Some people become millionaires because they NEVER SPEND ANY MONEY! LOL! Gosh - to leave it all to someone else to spend!

Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
