illionares who don’t

illionares who don’t live a luxury lifestyle Facebook CEO: Cheap On Himself & Generous To Others Mark Zuckerberg is among the youngest billionaires in the world. He is only 28 years old and his net worth is $67.8 billion. His wedding was held in his backyard. The couple was seen eating at an inexpensive restaurant while they were on their honeymoon in Italy. Zuckerberg reportedly drives an Acura “because it’s safe and not ostentatious.” If you notice one thing about this young billionaire, it is that he wears the same casual outfit every day. He wears the same gray t-shirt, jeans, and hoodie. GQ has named him “Worst Dressed Man of Silicon Valley.” His entire wardrobe probably costs less than $700, and it probably costs less than $200 a year to keep his wardrobe updated. Considering that the average American family spends around $1,700 a year on clothing, Zuckerberg definitely has the right idea on saving money. The trappings of wealth have never impressed him. Zuckerberg announced that he would donate 99% of his Facebook shares during his lifetime. Which Jewish woman gave up her wealth to marry a poor man and to live a more meaningful life? Warren Buffett: Living Simply Leads to Happiness Warren Buffett is the chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. He is well-known for being one of the most influential and richest person in the world. His net worth is $75.6 billion. Despite Warren Buffett’s being the second richest man in the world, he seems to possess the wise virtue of simplicity, something very rare in these days of materialism and complex living. He doesn’t spend on gadgets or electronics and doesn’t even carry a mobile phone. He doesn’t even own a yacht. He says that, “Most toys are just a pain in the neck.” Warren Buffett still lives in the Omaha, Nebraska home he bought for $31,500 more than 50 years ago. He bought a house he could afford and has called it one of his best investments because “my family and I gained 52 years of terrific memories with more to come.” He never travels by private jet, while ironically he owns the world’s largest private jet company. When he got married, rather than making a lavish affair, they had a brief afternoon wedding at his house in Omaha. Which Rabbi inherited a thousand yachts & a thousand properties from his father but he chose to live a simple and meaningful life instead? 124 Bar/Bat Mitzvah Magazine Source: Go on continued on p. 126
