It's possible for a man can be one of the richest on earth and not have a penny in the bank.

If a man has a penny in the bank, it isn't possible to be much poorer.

The point is, if you don't have your health and family, you can have all the money in the world but you will die to leave it to others to fight over. In that scenario, I'd rather have my health and family. Money is nice to have, though.

Rich or poor, it's good to have money.

The big boys make over 150 million a year. And most are not on the Forbes list.
The rich guys toy list ,
210' (70 meter) Yacht $53M, operational costs per year $6 million.
Gulfstream V aircraft $35 M, operational costs per year $1.3 million
Vacation homes 5 $50 M, operational cost per year $1.6 million
Cars a few $15M includes the household helicopter.

You will only reach this level working for yourself or being born in to it.
