27yo that left consulting to go into real estate private equity. After 2 years of experience had to start at the analyst level and took a small paycut. Have an offer to now re-join consulting with a much higher salary 30k more at least. My PERE firm is small and it’ll probably take me 2-3 years to make those 30k back. Am I overthinking or should i pursue the money when the end goal is to retire as early as possible?

If your goal is to retire early I’d stay with PERE if you think there is a path to leadership or you think you can start something of your own. I left consulting to co-found a PERE firm at 38. I’m now 40 and I see it as entirely possible I will make 3-5x what I would have in consulting over the next 5 years.

Thank you for your response. Could i message you?
