What do billionaires have in common?

In a recent article, The New York Times examine the common "secret" between several billionaires around the planet.

But apart from tons of money they do not share many other "secrets". As the paper notes: "Billionaires may have enormous spending potential, but they certainly exercise that power differently. Some live lavishly and enjoy being in the headlines, while others live frugally, if not anonymously. There are big spenders and those who give it away.

Mr. Ellison, a founder of Oracle and its executive chairman, owns most of the 140-square-mile Hawaiian island of Lanai, after buying 88,000 acres in 2012 with plans to create a sustainable, eco-friendly resort. He also likes expensive racing yachts.

His fellow billionaire Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, bought 74-acre Necker Island in the Caribbean in 1979. It operates as a private luxury resort, with room for 34 adults and six children at about $2,300 each per night. He also bought nearby Mosquito Island in 2007, the site of former President Barack Obama’s recent vacation. Mr. Branson is a serial blogger and Twitter user, sending out inspirational messages about entrepreneurship, conservation, music and travel."
