Define "rich"

Not having to worry about money.

This can cut both ways, depending on the person. My first job was at a property management firm that had some wealthy clients. I grew to divide them into two categories: those who used their wealth to worry less about money, and those who used it to worry even more ("Now I have $100,000 worries instead of $1,000 worries").

I got a close look at that at an early age, which allowed me to make a conscious decision which group I wanted to fall in, should I be fortunate enough to get there.
