"All this is pure speculation, of course. As I sit here writing, I'm eating a ham sandwich. That wouldn't be relevant to this story except for the fact that when I was making the sandwich a few minutes ago, I noticed that the ham from the supermarket deli had kind of a funny, "off" smell to it. I was going to throw the whole package away when I realized that a) the little printout on the label said we still had two days to go before the sell-by date, and b) this pound of ham cost us six bucks. When I asked my wife if she thought it was still good, she didn't even smell it or check the sell-by date. She just looked at the price tag on the baggie, and then at me, and said, "Eat it!"
I could live a very comfortable and luxurious lifestyle just on $6,000,000 after taxes.
But to buy all the fancy toys, vacations, and the Mega Mansion and a second home overseas, and to help out immediate family, give to charity and dabble in a business, I would need at least a minimum of $40 million for it to not even phase me.
My dream number would be $50,000,000 to $150,000,000 after taxes.
