Living in a very high COL area. Mid 20s. 120 base. Net worth ~0 when you factor in debt and 401k. Had a good amount of student loans Im paying off. Live the life I want to live in my 20s. I’ll be financially secure one day and not regret this. I eat out, go to bars, and travel like many other typical 20 somethings. Could die tomorrow. Depends on your attitude and this is relative guys! I’d say I’m pretty close to paycheck to paycheck but it’s not stressful where I’m asking ppl or institutions for money all the time. There’s been times where I’ll transfer money to a 0% balance transfer for a small cost that’s worth it to me. Some think it’s foolish but I’ll be at 200k base by the time I’m 30 and hope it gets better after that (I still hold my 401k and investment accounts, and keep my low interest payments which are paid slow and steady).

36 & married. ~$2.5M net worth. All self earned & $0 is from inheritance. We both came from modest middle class families & had negative net worth 13 years ago. Trailing 3 year avg combined gross income from w-2 employment: $300k- 325K. New partner this year thus our “all in” income will be much much higher going forward than in the past. Assuming we control our spending and income stays high, Should be in a position to have little to no stress about money going forward. Making partner is truly “life changing” financially; having a spouse that also works is icing in the cake and should give us the option to retire in our mid 50s once kids are through college (which I plan to fully pay for). nothing is guaranteed in life and thus, aside from driving newer “moderately higher end” family vehicles, we live pretty frugally and nobody would know we make more than $150K -$200K/year for a family w/ 3+ kids.

PWC 17 - sounds like you’re jaded and made poor career decisions. You Should have gone Ivy League schools and IB at Wall Street top firm if you desired to make 7 figure income within first 10 years of career. Sounds like you messed up and/or did not understand what it takes to make that level of income. For me, I’m happy with my $400K new partner comp and the prospects of doubling it in 5-7 years by the time I’m in my early 40s.

I find a little sad you need to ask strangers on an online forum how you’re doing. How do you think you’re doing? Are you happy? Are you enjoying your life? Does an answer about money from a stranger in a different location, SL, and age really effect how you feel about your progress in life?
