Dangers of Wealth
As a CPA I deal so much with people and their finances. I see the results of how wealth can corrupt and ruin people. I have a new client whose dad passed away late last year. He told me his dad made tons of money throughout his life, but left his family in debt, owing a lot to the IRS for back taxes. They blew through tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of dollars with nothing to show for it and no charitable giving.
You know a lot of people get wealthy, and live for right now. They don’t plan for the future. They aren’t really charitable. It’s very rare that I find clients who give more than $5,000 a year. It’s very very rare to see clients give more than $10,000.
