11. Warren Buffett
As the CEO and largest shareholder of the company Berkshire Hathaway, Warren has been ranked by “Time Magazine” as one of the most influential people on Earth.
However, Warren’s lifestyle hasn’t changed much since he has struck it rich, and he is surprisingly frugal.
Sometimes referred to as the greatest investor in the world, many people are surprised that Warren actually still lives in the same home in Omaha,
Nebraska that he purchased for $31,500 in 1958. Although he has dined in some of the most extravagant restaurants in the world and has no problem paying the tab, he prefers hamburgers from McDonald’s and a cold cherry Coke. He also shies away from technology, including luxury cars, cellphones, and computers, preferring a more simple existence.
Warren has also devoted much of his life to philanthropy, so it is clear that he knows how to give back. Warren has stated that when he passes, 99% of his fortune will be given to charity via the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
However, his children should not have to worry about finances after their father is gone, as Warren has stated that he plans to give them enough money that they can do anything, but not so much that they feel like doing nothing.
