    No, this isn't a dig into your personal finances to reveal information that should be kept secret... but more of a self-question that folks ask themselves but figure their personal value to be lower than it actually is.
    This article explains...
    At my age my potential net earnings might not be as much but it all depends upon how fortune favors me in the next couple of years. I've had a lot of strikes against me going through life, had a lot of hard times and a lot of miserable experiences... but in spite of the negative crap that I've gone through, I still can see my own worth to people... the ones who care and honestly like me.
    Just too bad can't translate that into dollars so I can get out of this rut that I'm in. :uhyeah: As a consumer... heh... not a whole lot.

    How about you?

    Wow... the story wasn't nearly as interesting as the comments. Holy moly. They opened up a can of worms with that one.

    I prefer Kiyosaki's definition of "rich."

    If you quit work today, how long could you live before you had to return to work? That's the measure of your (fiscal) wealth.

    We retire when we're "rich" enough to quit work and never look back.

    For what it's worth, Robert Kiyosaki's book, "Cash Flow Quadrant" is a 'must read' if you do want to be free to pursue personal goals. The principles he promotes have worked well for me in my retirement. :asian:

    If you turned me into compost you might have enough nutrients to grow a lemon tree for a few years. Guess I'm worth a 3 year old Lemon tree, anyone know what they go for?
