  1. Great post, Tom! In addition to being an investing genius, he’s also pledged to give away 99% of his wealth to charity as noted in the CNN article: http://bit.ly/cOt5ab. It’s great that the finance sector’s role model shows others that investing isn’t just all about money.

    Happy Holidays!
