This week’s career advice for the recently downsized comes from a small town in northern Sweden where the relatives of an eccentric dumpster diver were shocked to learn that his estate was worth over $1.4 million after he died last autumn. “Tin-Can Curt” spent every day of the last 30 years of his life cycling around his town collecting empty cans. He combined this work with a good mind for the stock markets and parlayed his modest income into an $8 million mutual fund, $2 million in gold bars, a fully paid off house and a pile of extra cash in his bank account.
