Early Financial Trailblazers

Orville Rogers (2)It is interesting to note that long before there were company-sponsored 401k plans when most retirees relied upon social security and hopefully a company pension during their later years, our Surprise Millionaires were bucking the system taking it upon themselves to save and invest for retirement.  Today’s Surprise Millionaire is an excellent example of this truth.  Read about Orville Rogers who is enjoying his fourth decade of a comfortable retirement due to his early and consistent saving and investing.

Those Thrifty Scots

This week’s Surprise Millionaire is a quiet, retired teacher in Glasgow Scotland. When Scotland (2)Grahame Pincock age 90 passed away in 2017, his friends and neighbors were shocked to learn that the unassuming bachelor had secretly amassed a seven million pound estate through thriftiness and investing. Mr. Pincock chose to bless his community by leaving hundreds of thousands to cancer charities as well as setting up a separate trust to help those in need.

We have had one or two other Surprise Millionaires from Scotland in recent memory. I think all of those stories about the “thrifty scots” just might be true!

Keep The Season Bright!

It looks like the market gave us an unwanted Christmas present this season.  But don’t let that spoil  your holidays!  Remember, we Surprise Millionaires are playing the long game.  Consistent, long-term investing really is the best present you can give yourself every day of the year!
