Selfless young entrepreneur puts his own goals on hold, saves for a year to shock his mom

He’s on a quest to become a millionaire by age 25, but Corey Wadden isn’t just looking out for himself. Raised in a coal mining family with an alcoholic father, Corey watched his mom make countless sacrifices for him growing up and is working to earn enough to let her retire by 50.

But retirement isn’t everything. Corey’s mom has always wanted a classic Saab, so the young entrepreneur tracked down the exact model she wants on eBay, and then saved up for it for a year.

Her reaction is priceless…

    My first car was an ’86 Saab (that I got in 2001). It was so cute, but that thing had so many quirks and maintenance issues…my favorite was when I would hit “resume” on the cruise control – the car would speed up to the set speed, but wouldn’t stop there. It would just keep speeding up until I noticed that I was going 85 mph and had to brake. Parts were practically impossible to get too. But I still loved it. 🙂

    That was such a wonderful thing to do. Wish all families loved each other with that kind of sacrificial love.
