Many of you are familiar with the story of Ronald Read featured in my book. For some reason, the media latched on to the story of this Surprise Millionaire and how the one-time gas station attendant, janitor, and wood cutter amassed an $8 million stock portfolio.
As you know, we do not offer investment advice here at the Surprise Millionaires. Our passion is to extol the virtues of hard work, frugality and consistent long-term investing as a pathway to financial success. However, I thought it might be worth sharing this overview of Mr. Read’s investment holdings as a reflection of the man and what he accomplished. Remember, anyone can accumulate wealth!
