Only famous ones?

I'm technically a millionaire now. I passed $1M in net worth this last week. I don't have quite that much in invested assets, since it includes about $100K in estimated house equity.

I did not inherit any of it, nor did I get particularly lucky in investing. I was simply well paid and married to another professional, and we saved over half our combined salaries.

That pretty much describes me as well, for what it's worth. But being a millionaire ain't what it used to be. It means you're well-off, but it doesn't mean you're filthy rich. The famous guys that have been mentioned are multi-millionaires at least, and in some cases billionaires.
