Living Below Your Means

I'm always amazed at my hero, Warren Buffett. He's the second wealthiest human being on Earth, but you wouldn't know it based on his lifestyle. He lives in the same home that he purchased in the late 1960's. He drives used cars with high mileage. He prefers Dairy Queen hamburgers over fancy entrees. It's an understatement to say that he lives below his means.

I though that Warren was an anomaly. I was wrong. A man named Kerry Packer recently passed away in Australia. He was the country's wealthiest individual. He also preferred hamburgers over fancy entrees. Add him to my list of heroes.
