As I was waking up this morning, this question came to mind. For me it is a big NO. Yesterday, once again, Lindsey Lohan was in the news. I would not want a bunch of photographers chasing me around. (I don't like the whole "papparazzi" term..they are photographers or reporters, or a bunch of people with no life who.....anyways, better stay on topic
) In regards to being rich, I don't think I would want that either. I am currently working on becoming debt free, "comfortable" is a term I am going for. Not stinking rich. I try to teach my kids how to work for their money and enjoy the accomplishment. No silver spoons, thank you very much. So what is your take on this? Do you want to be rich? Famous? Both?
Famous? Depends on what for and why. Rich, definitely. And i would like to try being filthy rich, just to see how the decisions on how spend that kind of money are made. But i would not want the irritation of having the government and others decide what my Fair Share is and then go after more and more of it for their pet projects. I have pet projects of my own and worthy ones, at that! Give me lots of money and a flat tax and i would do it! And I am with others who have the benefit of being known, for positive things, in a small community....more so here in Kansas, town of 1500 where i grew up, than where i live now, which is not small at all.
