Misconception No.9 -- Millionaires Live a Life of Ease
Many of us envision a millionaire as having an expensive yacht, Rolls Royce, Lear jet and a dozen servants who cater to his every whim. More often a millionaire will have an office and a secretary in order to run the business.
Studies of millionaires' habits indicate that they wear off-the-rack clothing, drive modest cars and eat food purchased from the local grocery store.
Any millionaire who possesses a jet or Rolls usually needs that item for business and can write it off as a business expense.
