    The famous phrase by Linda Evangelista about Supermodels,
    "We don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day."

    Taking into account your knowledge, skills, education, experience, responsibilities (kids, pets, etc), bills, lifestyle, looks, personality, happiness, stress levels, etc, anything that matters to you.. What amount of money a day do/would you not wake up for (get out of bed for) a day? Not necessarily your current pay.. (not asking how much you make) I'm talking about the bare minimum you would currently work for.

    Taking into account my education, skills, knowledge, experience, lifestyle, happiness, bills, and future plans.. I don't wake up for (get out of bed for)less than $300 a day.

    Well, if I weren't working I'd probably work for much less than I am now but I'd be willing to roll out of bed for $500 a day.

    I wake up because it means I'm dead if I don't.

    It also means another day to spend with my husband, and usually with our friends, to enjoy another wonderful day on this Earth. And I can't put a dollar value on that.

    Yeah, I generally figure 300 is the daily minimum consistent with paying all the bills and taxes and being able to take one or two days a week off. Assuming that there are no employees to pay from that.
    This is a lot less stressful than when I worked for others. To keep my job at a university, I had to bring in a minimum of 1000 a day. At a corporation, the minimum was more like 2000 a day. Of course, my share of that was very small.

    That's really cute my friend.. but.. I'm talking about working and creating funds to take care of the things that require money.. hence why I said (get out of bed).. not literally wake up. But regardless, your comment is appreciated. icon_smile.gif

    ROFL.. Wow. Come on guy.. don't be pessimistic. Actually sir.. I am simply asking how much does one require to do what he does in his daily/weekly/monthly life. $1 or $1 Million it doesn't matter. If someone is living nicely on $1.00 I definitely want to know the secret. If you feel this post is anything other than what I meant it to be, then perhaps reread and rethink it?

    Of course, there is always the fantasy of moving on to the boat, heading some place warm, and living on $20 a day. Until something breaks...

    Well for me it's with kids…despite their age, they're just too expensive to work for anything less! Now if I could sell them….well, then maybe I could get out of bed for a lot less! LOL jk.

    Well, then it doesn't apply to me. I've never lacked for money in my life, nor will I ever. Not that I'm wealthy, far from it. But neither do I need to think about it. Modest goals = modest needs.

    LOL. Well, Supermodels probably are pretty spoiled. I've only met one in my life. She didn't seem spoiled though. IT's not how much something costs.. if someone will pay them 10,000 a day to pose for an ad.. why not.

    We all get it.. more important things in life than money. Friends, family, good health, etc etc etc.. That's not what was being asked my friend. Simply asked.. for the job you do.. what is the least you would accept for that job. If you will get up and work for free.. then 0 is your answer. If that is the answer for everyone, then I would love to hire you.

    Nah it's the fact of being free to comment from any angle regardless of what you set up in your opening post.

    lol.. there's no angle. It was a simple question. But I guess I can understand how and why some would want to take it for anything other than what it is and was meant to be. Thanks for your comment though.

    ROFLMAO...

    Actually my name has 0 to do with money. Thanks for not asking though. =^/

    I'm a Brazilian and AIRE as in next in line after my father. Nothing to do with money. I swear nastiness seem to come so easily to some people.
