“Laurel Touby, 44, an entrepreneur based in New York City, [sold], a Web site for job-seeking media and creative professionals that she had founded in 1996. She sold it for $23 million — leaving $9 million . . . in her bank account after taxes.”

“Edward Bartlett, a 41-year-old accountant in Westminster, Maryland, won $84 million in a lottery last summer — $33 million after taxes.”
