Who is Adam Neumann?


Made By We shirt Adam Neumann.

Who is Adam Neumann?

The short answer is one of a kind.

Adam Neumann is the barefoot, tequila-drinking, weed-smoking Billionaire co-founder of WeWork.

Adam Neumann list of humble and realistic aspirations as reported by The Wall Street Journal in 2019:
  • Live forever. Maybe...
  • Become the World's First Trillionaire. Sorry Elon!
  • Expand WeWork to the planet Mars. It won't be with you...
  • Become Israel's prime minister. Okay!
  • Become "President Of The World". Just that?!

With an estimated net worth of US$1.6 BILLION, it seem that his eccentricity served him really well. But, he's still a long way from becoming a Trillionaire. However, if he is immortal as he claims and lives forever...

As Aristotle would say...

Aristotle quote about crazy genius.

Ikea Billionaire miser

Why Ikea Billionaire Ingvar Kamprad is probably the World's Worst Miser alive!

Ikea founder Ingvar Kamprad: net worth $41.2 Billion, steals condiments from restaurants and toiletries from hotels.

Ingvar Kamprad is the ninth Richest Man in the World with a Fortune of  $41.2 Billion.

Here are his self-proclaimed feats of penny-pinching in order of thriftiness...

  • Recycles tea bags.
  • Steals toiletries from hotels.
  • Steals salt and pepper packets at restaurants.
  • Only wears second-hand clothes bought at flea markets.
  • Tries to get cheaper haircut when travelling in poorer contries.
  • Eats at Ikea cafe for free meals. Otherwise he frequent cheap restaurants.
  • Purchases Christmas paper and presents in post-Christmas sales.
  • Has a 1993 Volvo 240 but prefers to use public transportation.
  • His home is furnished with Ikea furniture he assembled personally.
  • Flies only economy class.
  • Haggles for bargains at common markets.
  • Lives in a modest house.
  • He flew his country for lower taxes in Switzerland's tax haven. Normal, a good business decision. Only idiots want to pay taxes!

Nothing better than a free hot-dog at one of his Ikea stores.

I admire his thriftiness.
