5 Secrets your millionaire neighbour isn’t telling you

LISTEN UP IF YOU WANT TO KNOW   You never know who is a millionaire these days, or do we? A record-breaking 12 million people were millionaires in 2013 and researchers predict that people with net worth of at least a million dollars would continue to increase for the coming years.
