I've been reminded of this story lately as I've been concentrating ALOT on my spending and debt payoff. I listen to the news regularly so I hear tons of depressing things but this is one of the happier stories I've ever heard. I personally do not desire riches. I don't need a bigger nicer house or a brand new car. But when I think of what I'd really like to do once I'm financially free, once my money is actually my own, this story certainly comes to mind. I don't ever intend to hand 89 people thousands and thousands of dollars (oh, what a fairy tale story) but it sure would be nice to do something like that for just one person one day.
I think I might start a financial freedom wish list. Something like this awesome gift of generousity would be the first thing on it. Then maybe a trip to Sweden. I wonder, what would top off your financial freedom wish list? Now that certainly is a thing to ponder.
I wanted to thank my employees and that was a way I could do it. I hope it makes a difference in their lives like they have made in mine.-Howard CooperToday was accidental NO SPEND day 44. I forgot to bring my wallet to work. I was going to buy some food for dinner but we had eggs and potatoes instead.
