Nice - how far off are you from your target? And will you liquidate your whole portfolio or just a % of it?

1 trillion

$10 million and I retire

OP, I’m still pretty far off, although I came a long way since I started. Started with 5k, currently at 100k so 20x original investment. Another 5x to go. I’ll liquidate 400k, save some for taxes and buy a rental property (or two) with the rest

It’s a bit pointless throwing numbers like that!- everyone’s appetite is different. Their living situation, location, spend vary so much too. c1’s post has some perspective at least

I’m at a $100k right now - hoping to get to $250 - pull $200 out and leave 50k in

For data science roles, senior (L6) at AWS or post MBA level (specialist track, so same pay as generalists) at MBB? Comp is 20% higher at AWS just to start. But maybe looks like MBB has better upside - solid path to promotion to manager level with solid comp increase. But worse WLB and it's unclear to me whether MBB data scientist on the resume is up to par with big tech data scientist on the resume. Coming from big 4 so I am considering brand so I can do better with future resume screens.
