Would it over $100 mil or under? What would your ballpark number be?
For me: Its $30-50 mil AFTER taxes.l have factored in charities etc- hence the 50"

      10 M after taxes is good enough for me.

          I'd say 30-50 would be good for me as well... Something in the 1-10 range I can see just getting blown thru or bad investments... Plus I have 3 young children who needs to be taken care of.. it's all so much more than I have now though!!

          I wish I may, I wish I might...

              Actual cash value over 100 million would be good cause then I can split it with my brother and two sisters....then they can give it to whomever they want rather than coming to me asking for cash....Also it gives the beggars in the family and whoever more targets to hit up for cash....they'll call me and I'll divert them to my sibs LOL

                5 mils. after tax would do it for me.

                  3.2 million pretax would do me just fine. I'm only 7 1/2 years away from retirement anyways and don't need to lead an extravagant lifestyle already being content with what I have.
