How Mackenzie Scott Became the Richest Woman in the World
Mackenzie Scott is now the richest woman in the world.
With a net worth of $62.4 billion, the former wife of Jeff Bezos is so rich her wealth exceeds the GDP of Slovenia.
This is what my cousin calls “fu*k you” money.
I’m not quite so crass, but let’s face it — if you had $62.4 billion, there’s nothing you wouldn’t be able to do.
I was thinking about this last night.
Thinking about what I’d do with all that money.
Obviously, there are certain purchases I’d make right away …
A top-of-the-line Tesla, a state-of-the-art home gym with an indoor pool and sauna, and this farm in Iceland I’ve been salivating over …
Combined, all three of those things would run me about $1.6 million.
Or 0.003% of my total wealth.
Wouldn’t even make a dent!
Imagine being so rich that you could spend roughly $1.6 million and it would feel no different than spending $5 on a coffee at Starbucks.
Of course, what’s interesting about all this is how MacKenzie Scott became so rich over the past few months.
Four Percent Goes a Long Way!
As part of her divorce from Bezos, MacKenzie Scott got a 4% stake in Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN).
Because of the pandemic, which led to mass lockdowns, online sales and home deliveries have gone through the roof.
And Amazon stock went on a major run, catapulting from $1,785 a share to $3,520 a share in just six months.

I actually opined on this a couple weeks ago, noting that the pandemic, which is a crisis of epic proportions, has resulted in dozens of opportunities for investors to make a ton of cash.

My colleague Chris DeHaemer actually jumped on this early, recommending that I buy shares of Zoom (NASDAQ: ZM) back in February, because the demand for virtual meetings was going to soar after offices all over the world would be forced to shut down.
He was right.
Here’s how that worked out…
That’s a gain of more than 150% in less than six months.
Now, I may not be worth $62.4 billion like MacKenzie Scott, but I’m definitely not complaining after a $12,000 investment turned into more than $30,000.
Needless to say, I’ve been profiting from Chris’ coronavirus picks since February, and they just keep coming.
In fact, here’s an investment note that Chris sent out just recently, which explains in further detail how he’s finding these things.
Although, to be honest, I really don’t care how he uncovers all these winners.
All I care about is that since Chris has been cashing in on these pandemic stocks, I’ve been making a lot of money. And I encourage you to do the same.
