Please take a look at Jonathan Chevreau’s column today; he reviews Peter Grandich’s, Confessions of a Wall Street Whiz Kid. Grandich was a Wall Street legend who realized the emptiness of his quest for material wealth. Here is an excerpt:
Early on, Grandich’s church-going was mostly for show and to accommodate his Catholic wife. But when he said his newborn daughter was healed by prayer in the 1990s, he began taking his religion more seriously. He “started to believe in God on a real, daily basis,” even though he viewed himself as a “sinner . and a big one, at that.”
Despite his wealth, he felt like most Americans that he was living beyond his means, so “super-downsized” his high-net-worth lifestyle.
