Financial Role Models, The Happily Rich

If you want advice on marriage, you talk to someone who is happily married. If you want advice on money, I say you should seek advice from people who are happily rich. I don’t want marriage advice from someone who has been married for 50 miserable years, and I don’t want money advice from someone who is wealthy and depressed with no friends and four heart attacks. In my mind, the first priority in life is to ENJOY it. That is the purpose of increasing your health, finances, relationships, intellect etc. They are all a means to an end. That being said, here are a couple of role models for you to check out.

Mark Cuban: Admittedly, I don’t know too much about this billionaire, but in almost every picture I see of him, he seems to be having the time of his life. He seems to have figured out how to be rich and enjoy himself. Check out a great, no nonsense blog post of his here: http://blogmaverick.com/2008/10/04/how-to-get-rich/

Warren Buffett: I’m re-listening to The Warren Buffett way right now, and every time I get a lot out of it. He’s another example of someone who has had HUGE financial success (he has at times been #1 on the Forbes list of the 400 wealthiest Americans), and seems to be quite a happy person as well. Check out this video where he dispenses some life advice.

I hope that’s a little tidbit that inspires you to find and study some worthy role models, it’s a habit that can really get moving in the direction of your dreams.
All the best,
Dan O’
