I like to learn what rich people do. I hope to increase my net worth by doing the same as the wealthy. So far that has worked very well. When I learned that over 90% of millionaires owned their own home, I bought my own home. When I learned that rich people have more of their wealth in the financial markets than in their homes, I bought stocks! Well I’ve recently discovered a new reality TV show called Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, which follows the lives of 5 or 6 wealthy people in Beverly Hills, California
Dorothy, 25 years old, is the daughter of a self made retail entrepreneur. She spends most of her time shopping and she describes her current vocation as “funemployed and fabuluxe.” To give us an idea of how rich her family is she said “Honestly I’m not really sure how many Birkins I have, I’ve kind of lost count.” lol.
But of course every girl needs to have aspirations too. Dorothy says that when she grows up she wants to be “the Asian sensation of the world.” Seems a bit ambitious to me, but that’s what I admire about the rich, they set larger than life goals for themselves
Some rich people I know are stingy when it comes to money, but not these Rich Kids. They all seem like charitable people, especially Dorothy. She said “everyone has to give back once in a while.” She organized a blood drive to give back to her community and invited lots of people over for juice and cookies. And when she hosted a penthouse party for her friends she spared no expenses
There were bottles of Dom Perignon Champagne, Caviar canapes, and many other luxuries. The final bill came to $30,937. Hey Dorothy, can I be your friend too? haha. But not only did she treat all her friends like royalty, she also gave the server a $10,000 tip! Yes, that’s a 32% gratuity. Hot diggity dog that is seriously generous! （ ﾟдﾟ）
