Salaries

I was making $130k as a senior copywriter at a smaller shop in NYC but was laid off. Did this salary give me an unrealistic expectation of what I’m going to make next, either in NYC or other markets?

No I think it’s in the ballpark for cities like NYC or SF.

It's high for a senior but not heard of either for NYC. Aim for $130k but know that you might not get it again.

It’s not unrealistic if you’re good and your unique talent is in demand.

I’m sure your work is solid, just in my own experience the comp sounded high but good for you. Research comp. Aim for the highest number you’re ok with but also find a range you’re comfortable with.

In big cities that’s top end for Sr level unless you have lots of awards. Most will e pact you to jump to ACD or get less. Out side of NY or SF that’s crazy high. CHI Sr writers top out at 100k, ATL 90k, Minneapolis about 85k. Only at big network shops. Smaller shops the salary will drop even lower.

All, I have been at ~90% index funds (50% VOO, 20% VUG, 20% VGT, 10% VHT) and ~10% cash to invest during bear. This combo has done well for me. Investment gurus recommend significantly lowering stock exposure after 40. What’s the rationale. they say protect your retirement. why so early? Nobody had decades long recessions since the Great Depression (2008 was less than 2yrs). Why not stay at 90% stocks till 5yrs before I retire? My wife is employed too, so there is that fall back in an emergency.
