Be a Millionaire Day

It's Be a Millionaire Day! Today is the perfect opportunity to dream big and imagine what life would be like as a millionaire! While a million dollars isn't what it used to be, seeing a seven-figure number in your bank account is still considered a major financial milestone.

The first multi-millionaire in the United States was John Jacob Astor (1763 – 1848). Astor made his fortune in trade and later established the first trust in American history. His great-grandson, John Jacob Astor IV, was the wealthiest person aboard the Titanic.

There are many different ways to celebrate Be a Millionaire Day. Invest money in a savings account or stock portfolio, or purchase a lottery ticket to try your luck!
