What does wealth mean to you?

In the words of Henry Thoreau, “wealth is the ability to fully experience life.” This is achieved by fulfilling and maintaining balance between all the essential pillars of life. Having good health, creating deep and meaningful relationships through friends and family, having a passion and a purpose to pursue, getting an ongoing and never stopping education, and having financial assets that provide freedom and the ability to experience the good things in life, whatever that might be for each individual.
