    I agree with Kevin and the whole buying fast fashion idkw Graham buys it it’s bad for the environment and doesn’t last as long rather he should invest in higher quality but he’s pretty cheap like that lol

    Dang @Graham should have included your stock portfolio and you might had gotten a higher score 🤷🏽‍♂️ Good job regardless To comment you question about excess money how can you say I have no idea what I would do with all the money if I became a billionaire? How about giving back? We need more millenniums who also aspire to become philanthropists Don’t forget what goes around comes around Living in a bubble is an illusion. The current times should be a testament to that

    2 x $3 coffees a day, 5 days per week, 52 weeks a year would be $1,560 (and I don't know many young people who'd buy 2 a day commonly, in fact I'd say most buy it 3 or 4 times a week). Less than 0.1% of his $1.6m total income. People don't become millionaires in their 20s by not buying coffee or avocado toast or whatever bs the latest finance 'influencer' is selling people. Stuff like this is just designed to both (a) Cover for the fact that people like this almost always got a large volume of capital from their parents to invest with at an early age, by creating this mythical culture that they just made sacrifices no one else makes(there's plenty of poor people not drinking coffee and working 50-60 hours a week to get by) and (b)to make more money selling dreams of this 'grind and invest' culture to naive young people. Most of us aren't the 20-something landlord who can invest in a rental property and make enough to cover our own cost of living from it without having to produce anything of value. Most of us are the ones getting stiffed by high rents in our youth from landlords

    If Mr Stephan, said 10% of 1.6 million dollars that would be believable. There is NO place in America, you live on $16k, per year. Therefore, his statement has a distinct aroma bullsh*t.

    2.27 he doesn't waste a single cent. The beauty of being well off, is that you should be able to waste a single cent. It enables you to indulge your passions and hobbies where people less well off can't. If you're making a ton of money WHY are you not wasting some that's the point.

    INVEST IN A COLANDER!!! I cannot believe these two while making pasta! I'm all about building personal wealth, but when it leaves your current life lacking, then what's the point? Your entire life shouldn't be frugal for the sake of saying you saved a dollar. To me a splurge would be on a really nice vacation. Something memorable and can be shared with someone special. I do not see any value in fast food @ a McDonald's drive thru eating from the Dollar Menu. Oh and in most locations the Dollar Menu doesn't even exist any more! Everything on that menu is over a dollar. Even a small fry. It's really sad.

He would take extra T.P. from.public bathrooms, carry an empty container to fill with soap, and never ordered a drink in a restaurant, just a large glass of water with a side of lemon wedges to make his own lemonade. Good luck Graham

    Before you listen to Kevin about Diversification, check out some other billionaires on the subject, such as Charlie Munger, Gates and Bezos. Lots of them got that way by revenue concentration NOT diversification. If you cant think for yourself, then go ahead and diversify.

    All going to college is gonna get ya is a chance a better than min wage job (often that still isnt saying much). Being rich, (id say over a 250k a year u can spend, not gross. Has more to do with ur ability to sell urself. There are plenty of professionals that have limited or no college (obv excluding professions that require degrees). Their people running warehouses and managing them that are easily making 70k plus which is a decent living and wage. I for instance, have a job that i made over 70k not by much, but with a hsd and some college but my career path only requires a hsd. The people at the top with only that, are making 110k plus easy. Add to that their retirements are 6k plus a month and the retirement age is 50 or 55 dep on start date
