The “Do It Yourself” Surprise Millionaire

It appears a Wyoming man made his own will in order to leave nothing to Tom Woodyard (2)chance.  Tom Woodyard of Riverton Wyoming knew that he was getting older and wanted to make sure that his wishes were known and carried out when his time came.  So, did Mr. Woodyard hire an attorney to hammer out the details?  Nope. This retired educator did it all himself!  He drafted a very detailed will in which he left his secret fortune to more charities than could be cataloged in a short blog post! Everyone from the Boy Scouts to hospices, fishing organizations to churches, can thank Tom Woodyard for his generous gifts. And thankfully, the courts determined this gentleman’s do it yourself will 100% legal and binding.  While I admire Mr. Woodyard’s do it yourself attitude, when we are dealing with such a large estate, it might be a good idea to get a little legal advice along the way.  Regardless, it looks like we have another inspiring Surprise Millionaire to add to our list!

This Is It, Folks!

This is it, folks! This is the exact kind of person I have been writing and blogging about these past few years.  A wonderful gentleman, with a well-maintained home, well-ordered life and very respected in his community, who has quietly gone about amassing a huge amount of wealth which he is using to benefit others.

For those naysayers who comment that these people are really missing out by not spending their wealth on themselves, watch this video. Tell me what this gentleman has missed out on? It seems to me that he hasn’t missed anything. He is actually living the subtitle of my book, “Ordinary People, Extraordinary Wealth”!
