We need more people like Gremel

This is a good example of the power of compound interest over a long period of time. The fact that you can turn $1,000 into 2 million is – Mind blowing. I’m almost certain at the age of 98 you have just about zero fucks left to give and that totally explains why buying a fancy house and multiple cars would not be be something that Mr. Gremel would be interested in. And if he ever was interested, he would have bought these things 20 years ago, if that was what he thought he needed. Russ Gremel donated his entire fortune to the National Audubon Society – “Why not give it to them now… When I have the pleasure and enjoyment of seeing them use it”. The world needs more people like Russ Gremel. Rest in peace, Good Sir.
