Going Vintage

Happy New Year

For all of you potential Surprise Millionaires out there who are dedicated to building Vintagewealth but want to look good while doing it, why not think about going vintage?  That’s right, vintage clothing could give you the look and style you want without breaking the all important budget.  Remember, good quality classically tailored apparel is always in style.  Over at cheatsheet.com they have published a great article about the dos and don’ts of shopping for vintage clothing.  Even for those of us who are not that fashion conscious, jazzing up an outfit with a vintage watch or pair of cuff links could give you that little something extra that will make you stand out from the crowd during a job interview or formal event.  This might be something to think about the next time you are tempted by that 75% sale at the local discount department store!

Named after the great 19th century education reformer, it would seem that college professor Horace Mann was always destined to be an educator.  However, most college professors are not destined to become millionaires.  That takes frugality and long term investing.  Fortunately, Horace Mann had all of the attributes to make that happen!

It’s not what you make, it’s how you SAVE

imagesHere at the Surprise Millionaires we are fond of saying that, “anybody can accumulate wealth”.  Over at ESI Money, they have broken this concept down to three easy steps that I thought I might share with all of you potential Surprise Millionaires out there.  This article is one of a series ESI featured in which self-made millionaires were interviewed.  An interesting topic all the way around.
