    How much is enough money for you dear BHW member. The amount of money you would quit IM and start living. For me its never enough, because i enjoy IM. I love this and if i make money from this its even better feeling. (im 16, so i dont do it for living yet, but i make 3 times more than average person in my country per month)

    I go by three simple factors and "enough" isn't one of them.
    Earn, say wow, earn.

    Keep earning and scaling it up.

    The amount of money you can make is almost infinite, it's up to you. But as a person and for living, to make it become enough, you should have enough money to pay for living costs and be able to afford any toy you'd fancy, be it a car, a small jet, a house or whatever. Then you have reached financial freedom. If you have more than that then you should consider donating to charities otherwise you're some greedy bastards, there are people out there who can't feed their families.

    It's not one or the other - you have to live WHILE you are doing IM (or any other job to earn money)
    There's not some magic amount of money that "starts" your life.

    Plus, IM is fun, it's a constant learning experience, it's a game. If you aren't enjoying it, you probably shouldn't be doing it.
    For me, I'll quit IM if I get sick of it, but I enjoy it, and as long as it doesn't interfere with my life, why not?

    200.000€, when I would have that money cash I'd start investing in local businesses, but I wouldn't quit IM, too much fun.

    Its all about what makes you happy. What would make me happy is paying off my student loans..Having enough to buy a nice house...Buying a small business, and having about 250k in the bank..Id then just sleep with countless amounts of women until im tired..So id need about 750k...but some people have different dreams..so its all relative

    If I ever got over 100 million, I'd quit. Because then I'd just pay people to make me money lmao

    There is no such thing as enough in human's life other than food.

    If I keep feeding you pizza's, at one time you'll say enough, I'm full.

    But human's mind never says enough to other things in life. No matter if it's sex,girlfriends,money,cars,gadgets,etc.., They all want em more! :D

    We enjoy IM and money is just a standard we use to improve ourselves in it.

    The great thing about money is that there is nothing such as enough in it ;)

    It´s not like the 1 hour I work every day is affecting my life in a negative way or stopping me from "living".
    I do IM because it provides me with freedom. The kind of freedom I just couldn´t have with a "normal" job. It´s not like it is a 9-5 workschedule. And if it would be, i would have quitted a long time ago.

    There is too much fun in doing IM business so why quit at all when you can outsource the boring tasks?

    I thought this trough, and I'll probably never stop completely working, because I enjoy it. But I would chill a bit when I have 6 million euros. Yeah :p
