One of the most pleasant surprises for me when I wrote The Old Money Book and started the blog was finding another like-minded website that communicated so many of the values we promote here.
The Surprise Millionaires is a great website with inspiring stories about “Ordinary People” and “Extraordinary Wealth,” as they note on their site. Many of the people they spotlight do seem to lead ordinary lives. Some are school teachers. Some are civil servants. You won’t find the flashy hedge fund honcho here.
What you will find, many times, are heart-warming stories about unassuming people who worked hard, saved consistently, and gave generously, usually to charities or worthwhile causes in their immediate area.
When you talk about values, as I often do here, it just doesn’t get any better than that.
Kudos to the the people behind The Surprise Millionaires. I’m proud to be ‘on the same page’. My only regret is not acknowledging you guys sooner.
