From Gang Life To Millionaire

An inspiring story about a young man who not only turned his life around but became a self-made millionaire as well AND gives back to his community.  This is a different sort of “Surprise Millionaire” story.  I wish him all the best!

Don’t Forget The Basics

With a new year upon us, I thought it would be a great time to reiterate the message of the Surprise Millionaires which is “anyone can accumulate wealth”  !

Remember to follow the basics and you too might become a Surprise Millionaire some day.  Just in case you have forgotten the basics, I have attached a link that outlines the key steps in wealth accumulation.

Where There’s A Will There’s A Way

Another Surprise Millionaire who did not leave a will.  As I have said before, leave a will and make your intentions known.  If not, the state will “look after” your money for you … 

A secretary who quietly saved, invested wisely and amassed a $1.36 million estate.

The Blue-Collar Millionaire Of Durham N.C.

I have never heard of this television program “Blue-Collar Millionaire”; but I will be watching for it!  It is a little known fact that most American millionaires make their money in what many would consider dull, normal or even unattractive businesses.  What you see out there in popular culture is not the reality!

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!
