Mark-Zuckerberg-Grounded Humble Billionaire

The following 15 super rich & successful billionaires prove to us all that “money doesn’t always change you“.

 

15 Humble & Grounded Billionaires

 

Ingvar Kamprad, founder of IKEA

Ingvar Kamprad Net Worth

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingvar Kamprad’s Net worth: $3 billion

The founder of IKEA said he drove 15-year-old Volvo and always flew economy class, according to a 2006 Reuters article.

His frugal ways extend to his home in Switzerland, which is reportedly decorated mostly with inexpensive IKEA furniture, as well as a few family heirlooms.

According to The Daily Mail, Kamprad and his wife are often seen eating in cheap restaurants and haggling over prices at the market.

Note: Some Swedes will tell you that Kamprad is not as frugal as he would have you believe.

 

 

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple 

Tim Cook CEO Of Apple

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tim Cook’s Net worth: unknown, but he made $378 million in 2011

He may not technically be a billionaire, but Apple CEO Tim Cook is compensated handsomely.

Even so, he chooses to live a modest lifestyle. Cook lives in a modest, 2,400-square-foot condo in Palo Alto, which he bought for $1.9 million in 2010.

He’s quoted as saying in the book Inside Apple: “I like to be reminded of where I came from, and putting myself in modest surroundings helps me do that. Money is not a motivator for me.”

 

Chuck Feeney, co-founder of Duty Free Shoppers Group

Chuck Feeney’s Net worth: currently $2 million (he’s given away billions)

A Depression-era veteran with a strict personal motto: “I set out to work hard, not get rich.”

The co-founder of Duty Free Shoppers has donated more than $4 billion to disadvantaged children and public health initiatives, all while going to great lengths to remain an anonymous donor.

“He has no ego . . . He always chooses the second-cheapest wine from the wine list,” according to his biographer, former Irish Times journalist Conor O’Clery. “When we traveled together he was always dressed like a down-at-heel American tourist.”

 

 

David Cheriton, Stanford professor

David Cheriton Net Worth

 

 

 

 

 

 

David Cheriton’s Net worth: $1.3 billion

David Cheriton, the Stanford professor who has an estimated net worth of $1.3 billion from Google shares, hates the idea of living like a billionaire.

“I’m actually quite offended by that sort of thing,” he told the Edmonton Journal in a 2006 interview. “These people who build houses with 13 bathrooms and so on, there’s something wrong with them.”

Cheriton called himself “spoiled” for taking a windsurfing vacation in Hawaii, and in a recent Forbes profile said that his biggest recent splurge was his 2012 Honda Odyssey.

 

 

Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos

Tony Hsieh Net Worth

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tony Hsieh’s Net worth: $1 billion

After selling a company to Microsoft for $265 million, Tony Hsieh could have lived in the lap of luxury. Instead, he has invested $350 million of his own money into his online business to transform downtown Las Vegas into a tech hub.

And by all accounts his lifestyle hasn’t changed since his early days in business.

“Money is just a way for Tony to get to his endgame,” said Erik Moore, an early Zappos investor. “Money just doesn’t matter to him. If he only had a million dollars left, he’d spend $999,999 to make Vegas work. He would be just as happy with a dollar in the bank and being around people he cares about and care about him.”

 

 

Karl Albrecht, co-founder of Aldi

Karl Albrecht Net Worth

 

 

 

 

 

 

Karl Albrecht’s Net worth: $25.4 billion

Aldi is to Europe what Walmart is to the US. Albrecht founded the company with his late brother Theo, and together the two made billions building the notoriously no-frills chain.

Raised by a shopkeeper mom and a miner father, they remained true to the vision of frugality that drove both their stores and their lives. When Theo was kidnapped for 17 days in 1971, his brother negotiated a bargain ransom of  $4 million — which he then wrote off as a business expense.

 

 

Christy Walton, heir to Walmart fortune

Christy Walton Net Worth

 

 

 

 

 

Christy Walton’s Net worth: $27.9 billion

Walton is the widow of John T. Walton, one of the sons of Walmart founder Sam Walton.

Despite their wealth, Walton wanted a normal upbringing for her son, so she raised him in an 1896 Victorian home in National City, Calif., outside of San Diego.

After her husband died in a plane crash, Walton donated the home to the International Community Foundation – Center for Cross-Border Philanthropy.

 

 

Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg Net Worth

 

 

 

 

 

Mark Zuckerberg’s Net worth: $9.4 billion

As the mastermind behind Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg is a billionaire many times over. But the 28-year-old leads a surprisingly low-key lifestyle.

He recently upgraded to a $7 million house in Palo Alto, but The Los Angeles Times called the home “still well below his means.”

Zuckerberg reportedly drives an Acura “because it’s safe and not ostentatious,” and famously wears the same gray t-shirt and hoodie to work every day.

His wedding to longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan took place in his backyard, and the pair was seen digging in at a McDonald’s on their Italian honeymoon.

 

David Green, founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby

David Green Net Worth

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

David Green’s Net worth: $4.5 billion

While he could easily afford a Gulfstream of his own, Green, founder of arts and crafts retail chain Hobby Lobby, prefers to fly coach.

Instead of spending his billions on himself and his family, Green has famously become the largest individual donor to evangelical causes in America. He’s given upwards of $500 million in charitable contributions over his lifetime, according to Forbes.

 

 

Warren Buffett, chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway

Warren Buffett Net Worth

 

 

 

 

 

 

Warren Buffett’s Net worth: $46 billion

Warren Buffett still lives in the Omaha, Nebraska, home he bought for $31,500 more than 50 years ago.

He doesn’t own a yacht because, as he puts it, “Most toys are just a pain in the neck.” When he married his second wife, rather than a lavish affair, it was a brief afternoon wedding at his daughter’s house in Omaha.

He has also given billions of dollars to charitable causes and begged Washington to increase his taxes.

 

 

Alexander Lebedev, Russian businessman

Alexander Lebedev Net Worth

 

 

 

 

 

Alexander Lebedev’s Net worth: $1.1 billion

Unlike many Russian oligarchs who flaunt their wealth buying apartments, yachts, and jets, Lebedev is notoriously frugal.

From a Guardian profile:

“Indeed, the most striking difference between him and other oligarchs is his social activism. Lebedev has used his large fortune to improve the lot of ordinary Russians. He talks enthusiastically about such unfashionable themes as flat-pack housing and potatoes.”

He is staunch in his beliefs; Lebedev was charged with “hooliganism” after punching a rival on a talk show last year.

 

 

Carlos Slim Helú, chairman and CEO of Telmex

Carlos Slim Net Worth

 

 

 

 

 

 

Carlos Slim Helu’s Net worth: $69 billion

Carlos Slim may be the wealthiest person on the planet, but that doesn’t mean he’s an extravagant spender.

The self-made billionaire lives in the same modest six-bedroom house he has owned for the past 30 years, and still drives himself to work, according to The Week.

As far as we can tell, he does not own a yacht or a private plane.

 

 

Amancio Ortega, founder of Zara

Amancio Ortega Zara Net Worth

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amancio Ortega’s Net worth: $57.5 billion

2012 was a good year for Zara founder Ortega, whose net worth rose by $22.2 billion last year.

Even so, he hasn’t let the success go to his head. Ortega and his wife live in a discreet apartment building in La Coruña, Spain, and he’s a simple dresser, wearing a uniform of blue blazer, white shirt and gray pants every day.

He goes to the same coffee shop every day and eats lunch with his employees in the Zara cafeteria. And Ortega drives an Audi A8, not some fancy supercar.

One major indulgence: Ortega owns The Global Express BD-700, a private jet designed by Bombardier that carries price tag of $45 million.

 

 

Azim Premji, chairman of Wipro Limited

Azim Premji Net Worth

 

 

 

 

 

 

Azim Premji’s Net worth: $12.2 billion

As the owner of the technology-service giant, Wipro, Azim Premji is worth more than $12 billion.

Regardless, he is said to monitor the number of toilet-paper rolls used in Wipro facilities and demands that employees switch off the lights when leaving their offices.

Premji often takes a three-wheel auto rickshaw from the Bangalore airport when returning from business trips, and drives a 1996 Ford, according to a 2003 Businessweek profile.

“Premji makes Uncle Scrooge look like Santa Claus,” said one Bangalore tech executive.

 

 

Jim C. Walton, Walmart heir and chair of Arvest Bank

 Jim C. Walton Net Worth Billionaire

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jim C. Walton’s Net worth: $19.2 billion

Jim C. Walton may belong to one of the wealthiest families in the world, but he has followed in the frugal footsteps of his father, Walmart founder Sam Walton.

The youngest and most private of the Walton siblings, Jim still resides in Bentonville, Ark., where he runs the family’s personal wealth management company from the upstairs office of “a plain old brick building” in downtown Bentonville.

In 2007, it was reported that Walton drove a 15-year-old Dodge Dakota.

 

Question for the readers: How would you act if your net worth was in the billions? Would it change who you are? Would you be able to live a normal life?

    This is awesome. Billionaires know their wealth- they dont need to show it off. The middle class is the exact opposite! They have big bellies, big cars, proud mouth etc..

    Nice to see some grounded folks. I deliver pizza’s for a living right now, and work hard at it. Im very humbled. I’m trying to become an entrepreneur just to be independent. I feel as though I am extremely fortunate. I go to some folks homes that are rediculous and receive looks like, what is that piece of crap doing in my driveway? Been stiffed by many apparently wealthy folks. I receive much better tips as a whole from average folks like myself, often trying to tell them that isn’t necessary.

    Why drive an escalade when a chevy or ford will do? Two people in a 10,000 sf home? Why? Utterly amazing some of the things folks spend money on. I reckon they need to see how many “friends” that will gravitate to them. I shake my head at folks driving 80-90k vehicles like its nothing. Delivering pizza you see it all. God bless the good folks out there who do nice things for others. Doing things for others is the greatest feeling one can have. I try to give back as best I can. Thanks for the article, I wish more folks would see it.

    i would open most profitable industries (essential commodities) which would be very competitive in pricing as well as generate employment. well,as far as luxuries are concerned -i certainly would have the same a la victorian replica furniture that i have now. only a big bar would be added which i do not have now since after a hard day-having a peg or two will give you food for next day’s business thoughts.

    I’d like to think that I’d keep it low key.

    We’d buy a nicer house and give the current one to my in-laws who live in our guest house. The new one would be sane. Like maybe 4 or 5 bedrooms and two bathrooms. Here in Phoenix we could probably get that for $300,000 or so. I have chronic fatigue, so we’d hire a housekeeper once or twice a week.

    I might get some new clothes, but I’d still flinch at paying $60+ for a shirt. We’d travel more (read: at all) and fly first class when we did. Oh, and my husband would be allowed to buy more video games and a next gen console as soon as it comes out.

    I wouldn’t have added the Walton’s, although they’re billionaires the employees that work for them at Walmart, constantly struggle to earn a decent living. Jim Sinegal should’ve been on this list, not sure if he’s considered a billionaire though.

    Nice to see some grounded folks. I deliver pizza’s for a living right now, and work hard at it. Im very humbled. I’m trying to become an entrepreneur just to be independent. I feel as though I am extremely fortunate. I go to some folks homes that are rediculous and receive looks like, what is that piece of crap doing in my driveway? Been stiffed by many apparently wealthy folks. I receive much better tips as a whole from average folks like myself, often trying to tell them that isn’t necessary.

    Why drive an escalade when a chevy or ford will do? Two people in a 10,000 sf home? Why? Utterly amazing some of the things folks spend money on. I reckon they need to see how many “friends” that will gravitate to them. I shake my head at folks driving 80-90k vehicles like its nothing. Delivering pizza you see it all. God bless the good folks out there who do nice things for others. Doing things for others is the greatest feeling one can have. I try to give back as best I can. Thanks for the article, I wish more folks would see it.

    i would open most profitable industries (essential commodities) which would be very competitive in pricing as well as generate employment. well,as far as luxuries are concerned -i certainly would have the same a la victorian replica furniture that i have now. only a big bar would be added which i do not have now since after a hard day-having a peg or two will give you food for next day’s business thoughts.

    I’d like to think that I’d keep it low key.

    We’d buy a nicer house and give the current one to my in-laws who live in our guest house. The new one would be sane. Like maybe 4 or 5 bedrooms and two bathrooms. Here in Phoenix we could probably get that for $300,000 or so. I have chronic fatigue, so we’d hire a housekeeper once or twice a week.

    I might get some new clothes, but I’d still flinch at paying $60+ for a shirt. We’d travel more (read: at all) and fly first class when we did. Oh, and my husband would be allowed to buy more video games and a next gen console as soon as it comes out.
