A good rule I learned is you should make your mortgage or rent payment in one week. If you manage that, you’re probably doing ok.

Still trying to figure it out. A lot my goals for my family are aspirational. As it stands right now, I make enough to get by. But I need a bigger place, in a better neighborhood, with stronger schools and a reasonable commute. I need a salary that allows me to afford a car if public transportation isn’t reliable. Not even considering vacations yet, but that’d be really cool. It’d be fucking sweet to have savings. 90K in NYC isn’t cutting it at all. I’m making a lot of sacrifices that I’m not happy doing. Maybe the account executive is right with 180k for my own estimation.

Why do folks move or stay in Cali when the tax burden is pretty significant compared to another vibrant city like Atlanta or Dallas or Charlotte?

Those are significant numbers unless someone is making 2-4 times where a 1000-1800 may not matter to some.

I graduated last year and was promised a full time salary of 60k (marketing). However, my start date was exactly when Covid hit hard and everyone froze their hiring process and took salary cuts, so my company cut my TC in half. I was loyal to my company and it didn’t hit hard until now. They’re starting to hire many more people in a diff department which makes me think they have the budget now. How should I start and navigate this conversation? Thanks in advance 🙏🏼
