My other career is as an estate planning attorney. In that capacity, I’ve spent many hours visiting with clients about what will happen when they pass away.

Interesting patterns and principles of behavior accompany the accumulation of wealth by those who aren’t born into an affluent family. Many people who do not earn large salaries, teachers for example, end up being millionaires simply because they are persistent, consistent, and committed to saving money and living below their means. In our office, we see a lot of common folks who are secretly very wealthy.
