The Millionaire Next Door

The Downside of Understating Your Wealth

“Not acting rich” may be great for your net worth, but it might not let you into the parking lot at work. Below is an excerpt from Chapter 2 in Stop Acting Rich.

Dear Dr. Stanley:
Our physician recently telephoned to tell us laughingly that he had received the “Millionaire Next Door” award. When I questioned him, he explained that the hospital where he works hired a new security guard who refused to let him into the doctors’ parking lot; the guard didn’t believe he was one because of the car he drives, a Honda.
We very much enjoyed your book and wish you continued success. 
Mrs. J.A.M.
