When it comes to money I always say “Money talks, I just wish mine had a larger vocabulary”

Do we ever think “Hey I have enough money” I am not sure if that is our human nature.   I am not trying to sound cynical, but sometimes have a little extra cash takes a little stress out of lives.

To be fair we do need to keep a perspective about our money and I hope we all can find time or money to help others.

Why all this deep thinking about money… cause I ain’t got none.   Well to be honest I am doing OK but ……..

Today a new sturdy from yougov.com asked people what salary someone would have to earn to be rich.  And for the majority, the answer is . . . about $90,000 to $100,000.

Here are a few more results from the survey . . .

  1. The majority of people believe that being “poor” means you make less than $30,000-a-year.
  2. 2% of people think you’re rich if you’re making $100,000-a-year.
  3. And finally, 2% of people think you’re “poor” even at $100,000-a-year.

And then there is this that I read today about stay at home moms:  Everyone knows stay-at-home moms should be paid HUGE money for all the work they do . . . instead of the $0 they’re actually paid.  And this year, it turns out they’ve earned a big raise.

Salary.com just did its annual study on how much stay-at-home moms should be paid based on all of the jobs they do.

And the answer is . . . $162,581, which is up almost $5,000 from last year.

That’s based on a mom doing 34 different jobs, including Academic advisor . . . accountant . . . coach . . . day care worker . . . event planner . . . groundskeeper . . . interior designer . . . janitor . . . photographer . . . psychologist . . . nurse . . . tailor . . . and teacher.

I salute those stay at home moms.   It is getting harder and harder for a mom to stay at home.  Not only because of the economic pressure but also there is a social pressure to not be a stay at home mom.   I think that is a shame, the decision on being a stay at home mom or not is a personal decision and we (men and women) should not judge either way.
