Vc carry? Have an interview at a relatively new/small vc (few hundred million aum). They’re offering what sounds like a small base, no bonus, but carried interest (associate position, 3 yoe).

How long would I have to work there to realize the carry normally?

Genuine question for highly paid fish: Are you happy with your life? What are the negative aspects that come with the high salary? I see a lot of people making $300k-500k+/yr and curious to hear some unfiltered opinions about how your life is going. I know sometimes I think it would be nice to be making bank but I imagine there are things which come with the territory that I don’t consider. (Including your salary would be helpful.)

My principal emailed us today to let us know he has tested positive for Covid-19. Apparently, he was sick last week, yet at school, with what he thought was a chest cold. Ironically, a news crew was on our campus Thursday to discuss vaccines soon to be available for teachers in Georgia. My principal spoke with the news crew with no mask on. He also has diabetes. I do wish him a speedy recovery. 🙏🏾 Wisdom is the principal thing!
