"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…"

"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…"

Rick Shelton replied to Ross Miller's discussion What do you consider "wealthy" to be?
"Of course.  I was using the Huffington Post's numbers.  We paid over $25k in taxes and still had to pay $1500 more.  It's crazy."

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."
