Define comfortable.

Last year I flew for trips 12 times (weekends + vacations) I feel like my studio is comfortable and serves me well but it's not in a luxury doorman building which could be the disconnect. Gym is $80 / month and I like the space. I'd say eat out 1-2 times but when I go out with my girl I pay. Don't drink much which could also contribute significantly to weekly expenses

You can do all that with $95k base although agreed you don't save much but add the bonus and you're saving all of that.

like

95 base and you're eating out twice a week going on multiple vacations and living in a comfortable studio apt by yourself? Plus "nice gym membership"? Maybe I'm inflating it but I feel like that's going to cost at least 150k with no saving, 200 with some saving.

That's pretty impressive with 95k. So you basically spend them all and save your bonus?

like

I'm actually still saving ~1,000 a month. Pay ~2k in rent to give you some context since that's everyone's biggest expense

like

A spacious studio, be able to eat out once or twice a week, go on vacation a couple times a year, have a nice gym membership, be able to see shows or other entertainments once or twice a week. You know, the regular stuff.

Single? 200+ but you're not saving much at that rate.

Very impressive to do that with 95k. For girls it should be more since there needs to be budget for shopping.

My loans (3.5% interest) stress me out, and I make a little over 100k. Would you focus on loans first, split half and half for savings too, or save/invest more? Regardless I’ll save $1000/mo.

When requesting a raise, has an employer ever asked you for the cost of living? As an example- asking you to list out a future mortgage payment if you purchase a home, the cost of health insurance for your family, etc. Seems intrusive and weird. Raises should based on value, not what a mortgage costs…. but maybe it’s common.

So I came up with Canaries (☀️🏖️🦀🩴).

But I don't understand, how taxation would work?

Would I pay taxes in both Countries? Here in CH they tax me at the source (i receive my net salary only).

Could anyone with a similar experience share it with me?

In the current company I work for, it seems like in order to get promoted, you need to not only do what's within your job description well, but also do things that are past your job description so that they see your interest & understanding of other avenues, and THEN they'll promote you to a management role. Is that the standard way of getting promoted in all fields? Doing your job plus more until youre promoted to just do the 'more'?
