How Much Money Do You Need to Feel Rich? And How Much to Feel Happy?
How much money do you need to feel rich? Or, how much money would you need to be happy?
Good questions, huh? On tomorrow's Morning Show, I'll be asking you to call in and share your thoughts. (And no, those are NOT the same thing.) We open the phone lines at 8:00 a.m., and I'd love to hear what you think.
I post this question because a recent CNN poll found 23% of people say you need to make between $100,000 and $200,000 a year . . . but 11% say you need to make $1 million or more. And when it comes to how much you need to make to feel happy, three out of five people gave an answer between $50,000 and $200,000.
This is what respondents to the CNN poll thought.
Now . . . how much would you need to make this year to feel happy? The most popular answer was between $100,000 and $200,000 again . . . but the rest of the numbers skewed lower.
Almost three out of five people gave an answer between $50,000 and $200,000 . . . and another one in five gave an answer under $50,000.
Only 2% of people would need to make $1 million this year to be happy . . . and 6% of people who LOVE CLICHÉS said money can't buy happiness.
Let's get a conversation started, tomorrow at 8 a.m., on the WBCK Morning Show.
