I’ve been in the industry for many years at this point I can only name maybe 5 Account Managers who truly knew what they were doing.

28yo single male, no debt, 110k income, LCOL (Dallas). I've been living fairly frugally, maxing out 401k and reached 170k NW. I kind of want to splurge on a LUXURY ($2,100/mo) apartment.
