Elon Musk, Warren Buffett and Mark Zuckerberg are millionaires with fortunes greater than $ 100 billion, according to Forbes. These are unimaginable figures that could buy anything, however these three people have decided to live in an austere way although they are in a position to do the opposite, published the Cronista site.
Elon Musk, who has a fortune of $ 174.9 billion, is a billionaire who until recently had no problem using his fortune to buy large properties and extreme luxuries, although recently he showed a change towards a more “sustainable” and austere lifestyle.
The founder of Tesla, SpaceX and Boring Co. sold all his properties and moved to live in a small property located in Boca Chica, Texas, where the headquarters of SpaceX and Starbase are located.
Musk lives in a manufactured home worth $ 50,000, in contrast to the $ 100 million-plus mansion where he lived before.
Mark Zuckerberg, owner and founder of Facebook, has $ 130.3 billionYet he sports a simple image, taken to the extreme by the second generation of Silicon Valley billionaires.
Zuckerberg wears inexpensive T-shirts and also has no frills like expensive cars or a large mansion. He himself has said that he does it as a “life hack” to simplify his life and be able to concentrate as long as possible on really productive things.
“I actually want to clarify my life to make it simple and thus have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community,” the young Facebook CEO once said and confirmed: “I feel like I’m not doing my job if I spend energy on silly and frivolous things about my life. “
For his part Warren Buffett, ranked in the Top Ten Richest Men in the World by Forbes, with $ 105.1 billionHe also lives without great ostentation.
According to the documentary “How to be Warren Buffett”, the billionaire showed a “simple and cheap” lifestyle despite being a financial business mogul and an expert investor.
The Berkshire Hathaway owner lives in a house he bought more than 60 years ago and makes his breakfasts and lunches at McDonald’s for less than two dollars, a lifestyle that doesn’t seem like that of a millionaire with his purchasing power.
