    It will be quite obvious if you ask, that most people will admit that they will prefer to be rich , well being rich calls for many types of actions.
    My questions is : How many bodyguards will you employ when you are and why?

      None. I never want to become that famous. Rich, yes. I should say I never want to become that idolized where people are clawing at me just to say they touched me.

          And hope to share the wealth whether it's money or love.

          I went over to Helium to see if there's more money over there. HaHa. They pay $1-2 outright for some articles just to fill the demand and they have content marketing so if someone wants to buy an article they sell it for you.

            If I had come here for money , I would have left a long time ago . Anytime some one pays in cents and not all the time , it makes, no sense and I saw that early.
            But I won't dam the bridge I am crossing , I make every situation work to my advantage or I leave, don't step on toes , and stay strong in my belief.
            But who feels it knows it.
            if you think that is good , waste no time , life must always be for the better.
            There are other place s also.
            A fellow hubber gave me a great one .

              Actually, what made me take down my hubs was all the content copying that's been going on. I started by taking down the creative writing, excerpts and poetry, then just got crazy. I want to get my name into circles where I'll be associated with legitimate content to push my books. HP is a great place but they don't do anything to push Me. I don't expect them to. I have to do it myself. What's the site you have?

    I hope I won't have a need for bodyguards, but I think it often depends on how you got your wealth.  Believe it or not, billionaires like Warren Buffett walk around without bodyguards or anything like that.  However, if you're a lottery winner, you're a target.  (Someone once said that it's because, psychologically, people don't believe lottery winners deserve the money - they just got lucky - and many feel that they are just as entitled to it as the winner.  With billionaires and captains of indutry, there's a grudging respect for the fact that tehy seemed to have earned their money.)

      So it's easy to see when someone has a great plan. Because it's hard top stay incognito.

    I think it depends on how rich and famous you become. If you can go out and people don't know who you are even if you are very wealthy you haven't as much reason as someone who is easily recognisable and a household name.

      that's exactly the rich and famous I am speaking of the known , because it usually comes with the territory.But if you get away , top most you are not rich and famous , there is always another way to pose a question. lol.

    You don't have to be famous (or rich) to need a bodyguard! If you look like you might have money in some neighborhoods you better bring them with you!!

    I am from the UK but now living in the Philippines, where I live people are lucky if they have ANY money, most workers where I live get less than $50 per month. I get daily requests for me to give or loan people money as I must be rich because I am foreign!
    The local police always follow me if I am out and about as they don't want me killed or mugged while they are on duty!!! I am not too bothered personally, i can handle a random idiot (have 2 black belts and used to be a martial arts instructor and I am twice the size of the locals) but I would still be careful of having a set  routine that people could get to know easily. Locals and foreigners here have been known to be murdered for the equivalent of $20 or less!!
    Saying that, nothing has ever happened to me here but I have had someone try to mug me for my mobile in the UK while walking at night in Luton.

        The guy that tried to mug me didn't laugh, as soon as he shouted at me to give him my phone he was flat on his back.. I then chased him down the street - he was crying and screaming for help as he ran - I think he will think twice before he does that again (or use a gun!)

          lol . Sometimes it's just so amazing , because even on here there are people barking very loudly at others , if you ever see them , you will realize why. Empty vessels makes the most noise. But it;s one Love. You have the right to survive.
          Great work lol.

    Don't want to have bodyguards around.
    I feel having bodyguards around keeps one away from people. Also I don't like to be with same people always. If I appoint bodyguards they will be always around me.

      It's a brutal road out there , there are those only there to study people like you and you become an instant magnet when you got the loot.
      But all is well because there are many without.
