In this article from CNN Money, Marc and Elesya cite MONEY Magazine (CNN Money’s offline counterpart) with helping them determine their strategies for building their net worth.
You know, it would be great to see some stories about poor schlubs like me just trying to get by in a mediocre-paying job renting an apartment by myself in an expensive area so I can start feeling like I’m not the only one.
One thing I noticed about these “Millionaires in the Making” stories they run on CNN Money is that the articles are almost always about a couple working at building wealth together rather than an individual.
Side note: I like this “disclaimer” underneath their net worth detail: “Note: Their outstanding mortgage principal is excluded.” Then it’s not really their net worth, is it?
