I just ran across an old post from 2007. While it may not be the most politically correct topic, it is definitely one worth revisiting.

How to Marry a Billionaire: Sums up an article from Money Magazine in 2007.

Briefly:

Lower your sites…Shoot for Millionaire.

Marry the child of a billionaire.

Get an M.B.A. (most billionaires meet their spouses at work)

Make Consumption Your Career (Sell that Billionaire a Boat)

Move Closer to Where the $$$ lives.

On that note, here is a quick spotlight on homes where your whale might live.
