World Cup ref who is worth $10 mil

Pretty awesome story about Swedish referee, Jonas Eriksson, who sold his stake in a media company, making out with $10mil in the process. Even better is that once he made his fortune, he decided to follow his passion and pick up a new hobby – refereeing soccer. He is making his debut at the World Cup and is probably the last guy you would ever accuse of fixing a match, based upon his fortune. His move away from the business world is a shining example of how you should always follow your passion(s). Sure, not all of us have that opportunity to put $10mil in the bank and pursue our passions, but we can do so to a lesser degree.
