Why Frugality Won’t Make You Rich

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

Many people believe that frugality is the key to getting rich. Self-made multimillionaire and financial podcaster Linda P. Jones disagrees.

Listen to her interview on The Goldstein on Gelt Show to find out why being frugal isn’t enough.

Linda explains why you should follow the lead of billionaires rather than millionaires when making investment decisions.

When considering where to put your money, you need to understand what is “reasonable,” and what rate of return would be a cause for alarm over a period of ten or twenty years.

British Soccer Club Owner Rents Entire Israeli Hotel for Passover

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

If you are looking for a hotel room for Passover in Mitzpeh Ramon in the Central Negev, start looking elsewhere.

Roman Abramovich, owner of Britain’s Chelsea soccer club, has booked all 111 rooms in the Beresheet Hotel in the mountain desert resort city, the London Daily Mail reported.

Abramovich reportedly will fly to Israel today (Sunday) in his private jet with Darya Zhukova and their children Aaron and Leah, and travel by limousine to the hotel.

The bill will come to approximately $450,000, not including tips. He will conduct the Passover Seder in a tent that was built for him at the Beresheet Hotel, which has a view of the Ramon Crater, the world’s largest crater created by erosion.

He can afford it. His personal wealth is estimated at  slightly more than $14 billion making him the 50th richest person in the world, according to Forbes.

The last time  Abramovich was in Israel for Passover was in 2009, when he rented out an entire floor of a hotel in Eilat.

The Daily Mail reported, “Abramovich is a frequent visitor to Israel. In the past year alone he has been to the country five times, including visits to technology incubators in Tel Aviv with a view to investing in high-tech startups and attending a fundraising event for an organization that carries out archeological excavations, which he supports financially.”
