Where Multimillionaires Grow Like Weeds

Bank of America and other wealth-management organizations seeking to connect with "today's wealth" needn't look much further than Google.

So reports The New York Times, illustrating the point with the case of Bonnie Brown. Newly divorced in 1999, on a lark Ms. Brown answered Google's ad for an in-house masseuse.
Ms. Brown . . .now lives in a 3,000-square-foot house in Nevada, gets her own massages at least once a week and has a private Pilates instructor. She has traveled the world to oversee a charitable foundation she started with her Google wealth and has written a book, still unpublished, “Giigle: How I Got Lucky Massaging Google.”
By unofficial estimate, "1,000 people each have more than $5 million worth of Google shares from stock grants and stock options."
