8 people who became millionaires before they were 25 describe what it's like be so rich, so quickly, so young

Published by Business Insider on Sun, 21 Feb 2016

Not everyone can be Mark Zuckerberg and become a billionaire by age 23. But plenty of people have been fortunate enough to become self-made millionaires by age 25.A Quora thread titled "What does it feel like to be a self-made millionaire under the age of 25'" asked young millionaires to share their experiences becoming so wealthy at a relatively young age.All the people from the thread who are featured here posted anonymously.With experiences like awkward encounters with bank staff and difficulties with teachers, we've picked out some of the gems from the threadbut make sure you read the whole thing for yourself.Teachers treat you differently."A couple of my teachers found out that I had some success and it's just not the same. I can skip project dates and they won't even say anything about it, while they give other students a reduction in their mark. Doesn't seem fair to other people but I mean it's nice for me. Sometimes it gets annoying, they ask too many questions about what I do, how I got started, and then blap asking if it's possible if they could do what I'm doing etc."A visit to the bank becomes an interrogation.Nearly ever [sic] trip to the teller becomes some sort of interrogation. 'What do you do, omg good for you, when did you start' etcJust gets so annoying and some of these tellers have to scream it out so everyone in the bank hears.You feel uncomfortable with spending money unnecessarily."I am from a poor family and the way I was raised, I always made sure not to spend more than necessary. The weird thing now is that I canspend more and it doesn't really make a difference financially, but it still does psychologically. For example I booked a really nice (and somewhat expensive) hotel, and then I caught myself being reluctant to use the mini bar because some voice deep inside my head told me that mini-bars in hotel rooms are a ripoff."See the rest of the story at Business Insider
