So I've been listening to these audio books by Thomas Stanley about Millionaires. And they're really influencing me. He says that the people who are actually wealthy, don't buy luxury items and that if you do, you will never save enough to be a real millionaire.
I have a Leica M6 Classic, with Canadian 35 Summicron version 4. And one of the reasons why I bought this camera was so that I could chit chat with passersby about it. I've been asked "Is that a Leica?" at least fifty times now, and it was fun, I've even made some friends. It's an awesome camera and I love it. But I could probably sell it for a few thousand and pay down my credit card.
Does a Leica appreciate at 12% (my Visa interest rate)? I'm guessing probably not.
Is there anyone else, so crazy as to have bought a Leica on credit!?
If you want to become a millionaire, just do what Thomas Stanley did. Sell a worthless book.
