    Giving the money to the government, wow!

    I enjoy all these stories here. They are mostly filled with hope. Showing the everyday guy and gal can do it.

    I personally know a couple of surprise millionaires. One of them you’d think by the way he lives that he must be living on SSI income, yet he invests roughly 80 to 90 percent of his income,, and the other lives very modestly but not nearly as much as the first.
    Both have been saving and investing a terribly long time. The first is very risk adverse and only touches, CD, mutual funds, and now mostly ETFS. The second primary did most of his investing in equities, and MLPs, and the occasional option trade. The second one also had at one time a commodity license for his personal use.

      Thank you very much! I really enjoy researching and writing about these very interesting people. They are a personal inspiration to me and I hope to others as well. I know that some of these folks take frugality to an extreme at times but I think we can all learn a thing or two from them about what is really important in life. Thanks for reading!
