What does wealth mean to you?

"Wealth means freedom to live an abundant life in every aspect - having financial security and quality of life while also being able to give back, creating a positive impact in the lives of others. As Winston Churchill used to say - 'We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.'"
