What is Wealth?

9:37 AM
"They say I am the world's poorest president. Let me tell you that I am not poor! Poor are those who need too much...."

                                        --Uruguay President Jose Mujica

After 14 years in prison during Uruguay's dictatorship, Jose Mujica learned that the secret to happiness and wealth is to live much more simply. Finding common ground is a highly shared value in Uruguayan democracy, in stark contrast to many other countries with us vs. them politics.

"No one more than anyone else..." a motto that Mujito lives by. He donates 90% of his presidential salary to charity. This man is truly an inspiration to others!

Give back where you can, in business and in life. Be thankful for your blessings. Make every day count!
