"Have you thought about going it alone? Places like www.guru.com and other sites cater to freelancers. There are also contracting companies that will farm you out when they can. All work from home type stuff, where you'd essentially be your own…"

"I Agree with the eating, but sometimes that alone is not enough. However, it is a great start. Past that you might want to focus on works outs designed to burn fat vs gain muscle. I'm returning to being an avid cyclist, and I know there are…"

"While I am far from authoritative source on the matter, I've always had side jobs. That being said, some paid a LOT more than others and I got different things out of them. First thing, how much time do you have to spend? I worked retail (REI…"

"I was thinking living within your means AND being happy about it.  My first thought on the topic was all bills covered + XXXX extra to spend how one pleases per month.  But I realized that what I was really saying was based in what…"

Jack Bauer replied to Ross Miller's discussion What do you consider "wealthy" to be?
"That would have more to do with 'living within your means' than what your means are.  Lots of high-income people live above their means ... and quite a few poor people can't spend what they don't have in…"

David F. replied to Ross Miller's discussion What do you consider "wealthy" to be?
"Wealthy is all your bills covered and having enough spending money to enjoy your lifestyle without creating debt. It is not an amount of money.  It is about resources available to be expended as you wish without long term effects."

Chu Kim replied to Ross Miller's discussion What do you consider "wealthy" to be?
"There is never enough money. The more you make it seems the more you have to spend. I guess like 5 million would be enough to not have to worry about anything for a good while."

William W. How replied to Ross Miller's discussion What do you consider "wealthy" to be?
"The "good" or "reasonable" amount to spend on education or housing or even food is dependent on so many factors that it is impossible to make an objective determination of the prudence of spending a definite amount."

Do you speak German fluently?

A lady came to my church's weekly food pantry (which used clothing as well) who told the ladies there that she couldn't understand them because she only speaks German (which may or may not be true).  I told the ladies that I would have a simple set of rules translated into German, and with my one year of German in high school, I could show and read to her these rules next week.I translated using Google from English into German.  Are any of you guys able to check my Google translation for…See More
