Blazing a circle on the outer ring is a shooting star.

How Much Money Do You Need to Be Considered Rich?

I once read the book “How to Get Rich” by publishing magnate Felix Dennis, in which he defined being “rich” as having a net worth of $30 to $70 million of cash-on-hand. At the time, I can remember thinking that was an astounding, even crazy number, but I’m sure many in the so-called 1% would agree completely.
