The difference between ACTIVE investments vs. Passive Investments is a whopping $4.5 million dollars according to some extrapolation I did based on this article from SmartMoney.com.

For some reason, I was expecting that article to state something like, “These pentamillionaires got rich by spending less than they earn” or perhaps, “These pentamillionaires got rich investing in mutual funds.”

Why did I expect those two statements?  Because every pf blogger out there seems to think that the afore mentioned sentences are the best methods of becoming rich.  According to the article, passion & dedication were the keys to reaching vast wealth NOT passive investments!

While there are plenty of people who would be happy with 500k, I’d rather have 5 million, but then again that’s just me!
