Just so everyone recognizes the importance of this: it’s super varied. That chad you know who started at 350 isn’t the norm. Your trajectory is yours, stuff happens when it happens within your circumstances. Be haopy

Is that a type of beer? Would love to try 😬

Also I think city would need to be relevant here. Sure 100k in SF is easy to make, but gets you a shoebox to live in. I’m in Charlotte and 100k here is a good standard of living. I used to live in the northeast and 100k in Boston or NY doesn’t get you far. Just food for thought.

Took me 6 years to hit six figures ... interestingly it only took 8 more to hit seven.

I’m glad to see you recognize #4, with some of these folks I wonder 😂

I’m so close at 26! Honestly it’s just the next milestone. Don’t be disappointed. Half of that and 1/4 of that was a milestone at one point

Just to ruin things a bit for everyone. 6 figures today (e.g. 100k) gets you much less than 20 years ago (when I first started learning about salary and income, and 100k seemed like good life). I'm 31 now

Maybe, but it’s still significantly higher than average. Feels good to know you’re doing well, even if it buys less than it did before.

25 because of company hop! Could probably have done it sooner if I jumped sooner but all good
