Spend as much as they spend while putting the difference in investments and you will be. Then they won't think you're rich and you actually will be.

Rich = your passive income exceeds your cost of living

I work at a PE fund (not a mega fund but a very well known one) and I can tell you even my Director ain’t rich from being worry free...his base salary and bonus cover his mere operating expenses (2 kids in private school, mortgaged house and summer house, 2 cars, family trips to Europe)...if he can make carry then he’ll be rich, if the investments go to shit we will all be out of work...fuck man it’s tough pickings out here and to top it off constantly stressed out

It’s all relative! I’m the lowest earner of my friend group - Traders at Quant Funds, Software Engineers, Small Biz Owners. 🤷‍♂️ It’s chill though, we made a pact that if any of us make a mil a year, we’d have a yacht party for the others. I think one of them might get it this year! 🎉

How important is it to workout with a trainer if you have weak joints/cant do a high impact exercise. I did nothing for a yr - now my knees hurt, my butt burns while sitting, my ankles crack,the list goes on... I tried physical therapy but the 4 sessions I went to - I mean not worth the $100+ that I had to pay (post insurance). At this point, I'm wondering if it makes sense to get a personal trainer and to ease the transition back to a somewhat consistent workout schedule. Fully vaxxed btw...
