Just hit 6 figures before 30! 🤑 (Location: Chicago) As a child of immigrants, POC & woman, this is huge!! While they were supportive, my family didn't have corporate experience/understanding to offer guidance so there were a lot of lessons I had to learn on my own. Plenty of you make tons more but just wanted a more appropriate /anonymous place to be proud & brag since that's not really a thing to do publicly!

Are you both me?? I recently switched jobs and achieved this but there is a lot going on in my life right now and I didn't really celebrate this but reading this makes me so happy and actually proud of myself (after a long time!). People on this app are always talking about how much they have and it makes you feel left behind but this feels good 🙂 Thank you! ❤️❤️
