How much money does it take to be "rich?"

How much money do you need to make to be "rich"?  Or, rather, how much money do you need for people to THINK you're rich?  

A new study asked people what salary someone would have to earn to be rich.  And for the majority, the answer is . . . about $90,000 to $100,000. 

That's actually great news! When I think of being "rich," I picture a 7-digit bank balance--which, of course, makes me think I'll NEVER be rich. But what's nice about this survey is that it makes me feel like being "rich" is actually attainable for regular people! Don't get me wrong, $90,000 is a LOT of money, but it's a whole lot less than a million! We can do this!

 Here are a few more results from the survey . . .  

1.  The majority of people believe that being "poor" means you make less than $30,000-a-year. 

 2.  2% of people think you're rich if you're making $10,000-a-year.  

3.  And finally, 2% of people think you're "poor" even at $100,000-a-year.  

For fun, here are some songs about money to get you inspired to go make that cash!
