  • No, I think it's a factor. But I think being successful can mean many things. How many ppl you've helped, lives you've changed/saved, being happy with what you're doing, doing your job well.

  • Depends on how you define sucess. We don't have a lot of money but are very sucessful in love and life...which to us is more important than money.

  • No when my business takes off the amount of anime and movies and people we are able to employ will signify success to me.

  • It depends on what kind of success you are talking about. I think I am successful, I don't make a lot of money, but I am great at my job, my husband is healthy and happy and so are my kids.
