  • The definition of rich is subjective. Are you looking for each person's view of rich, whether or not they are and how they got their or are you specifically speaking in terms of earning a certain amount of money annually?

  • I'm not rich, but I have enough money to retire on. At the current rate of return I will have a million by the time I'm 40 (in 4 years). My great aunt left me 125,000 when she passed away when I was a teenager. I used some of it to go to college, but went mostly on scholarships and grants, so I still had well over 100K when I graduated. I invested wisely and didn't spend any of it.

  • I'm not rich, but I have a great income of just under half a mil a year! So, by the average American thoughts of what rich is, I guess I could qualify. How did I get there? Hard work, supportive family, faith and a great Home Based Business.

  • Rich is based on perception. If you compared with people in the whole world, and included third world countries, the people in America are financially rich. Even if they don't think they are.

  • I also have a great home business. I've earned about $60,000 a year for the last 8 years. I only work about 15 hours a week training other Moms how to start their own home businesses. It's a great company that offers all Moms the experience to change their financial situations fro the better.

    Besides this I try to live life to the fullest. We have a big family, a great house, lots of fun and happiness! Life is good- very, very good!!!! 949-487-1445
