Becoming rich by giving

Bill Conley spent the day before his 50th birthday at the doctor’s office.

He’d blown out his knee, but it was too soon to replace it surgically. He’d have to get by. Quit running. Take it easy.

Bill spent his last day at age 49 feeling sorry for himself.

On his first day at age 50, he decided to put into action an idea.

It was one he’d kicked around for a while. One that would require some money — $50 a week — and a little chutzpah, which, for a buttoned-down finance guy like Bill, would be the bigger investment.

He decided to spend his 51st year on this planet being more generous. In a very personal way. He decided that each week, he would hand out $50 to someone — mostly strangers — who happened into his path.
