Financial success does not happen overnight: it’s a daily discipline of saving and investing, regularly seeking opportunity. Financial failure also doesn’t happen overnight: it too, is a series of daily habits repeated, such as spending more on coffee & lunches than on transport. American’s big millionaire CEO’s spent too much money over decades leading up to the GFC and the crash was inevitable for them (amazingly, the “great uncrashed” Warren Buffett, Steve Jobs and other super-billionaires are/were generous, benevolent and surprisingly frugal). Hopefully the 99% can learn from the mistakes of the millionaire 1%; recycling and frugality is the sexy new way to save the planet and save ourselves; perhaps it also leads to benevolent billionaireness.
