Is there some amount of money where you would consider paying for professional management for all or part of it ?

No. I started with zero and steadily worked my way up to nice 7 figures with no help other than what I found here and reading/studying in general. Doesn't mean I haven't made mistakes, but at least I learned from them.

Biggest suggestion, you don't have to hit home runs every time. A bunch of singles and doubles will get you there with less strike outs.

Now I would pay/have paid to help with estate planning/inheritance. Tax laws in those areas just change way too often.
