But what about David Choe? Have you ever heard that name? He’s a graffiti artist. A guy who has had run-ins with the law and other rough spots during his life. So how did this particular artist accomplish all of his financial planning,”investment planning, wealth planning, legacy planning and philanthropy in one fell swope? Dumb luck, tha’s how. In 2005 Mr. Choe was asked by the President of Facebook to paint murals on the walls of the company’s offices. Choe was given a choice 1. Take thousands of dollars in cash or 2. Take some stock of the privately held company. Well, he took the stock (even though he thought what the company did was “ridiculous and pointless”).
Gaffiti painting….might not be such an eye-sore after all.
