A Surprise Millionaire In Her Own Words

I have had the pleasure of following Dave Ramsey and his organization for quite some time. Dave is well known for helping people get out of debt and also helping them to accumulate some wealth along the way.  He uses financial concepts found in biblical scripture as well as plain common sense to help people reach their financial goals.

One of Dave’s most popular segments from his podcast/radio show is the “Millionaire Theme Hour” in which regular folks who are currently millionaires call in and explain how they reached this milestone. During one of these segments I was happy to hear from a lady who we would describe as a Surprise Millionaire.  This particular lady related how she accumulated her wealth by living below her means and investing wisely.  It is a rare chance to hear a Surprise Millionaire in their own words so I couldn’t resist the opportunity to introduce “Terry from Denver” to my readers.  Enjoy!  

 

A Surprise Millionaire Profile

Youtuber Tim Schaefer recently profiled a family friend who I would categorize as a Surprise Millionaire.  Tim states:

“A friend is a frugal saver. She and her husband worked hard. They lived frugal. And saved a lot. Since she is retired, she did not touch her investments. She is just spending her pension. She stays out of stores. She has a strict budget. And avoids expensive restaurants.”

They appear to be outside in a park so sound quality leaves a little to be desired but the message is great!
