Yes, no windfall will come without you taking risks. Please step outside and get comfortable staying uncomfortable

Take a risk. Most people that made a million dollars took a risk and built their own wealth or just keep waiting for that 10-20% every year till you make partner.

I started my own business. Made a few million. It eventually failed and now just taking a break before the next thing. And no, a million after taxes before thirty is not enough to retire on for the next 60+ years.

I don’t consider that a failure. Failure would mean you had to file chapter 7 / 11, or came out from the experience with 0 ROI

A job is a short term solution to a long term problem. The long term problem is that you need an income stream to fund your living expenses. Now find your solution that fits your skills, interests and capabilities.
