“The year’s top sale in Beverly Hills was a $70 million ‘spec’ home, purchased with all furnishings and appointments, including an extensive collection of wines in the 2,500-bottle cellar and a fully stocked $200,000 candy wall. Tired of the line ‘just bring your toothbrush,’ the agent even provided eight OralB 3D Braun toothbrushes as part of the deal!”
Most of us probably dream to become a billionaire someday. Who wouldn’t want to be one? Being a billionaire can give you the opportunity to travel around the world, be on expensive trips, buy almost anything you want, ride and acquire the most expensive car, yacht or even own a private jet. But given the chances and opportunities to engage with such a luxurious lifestyle, there are some billionaires who chose to live a modest life. In Luxury lifestyle it is possible that this refocus is a result of the challenges facing young people today. So many of us have chosen to sacrifice income and stability to follow our passions that luxury in the traditional American sense (increasingly bigger cars, televisions and houses) no longer seems a viable option.
In luxurious lifestyle as a group, we have lower incomes and high expectations. Perhaps this is why our priorities have shifted. Perhaps this is why luxury in the sense of beauty, art, quality and knowledge, has become so precious to us.
