What drives people other than comp? Many of us will probably never be satisfied with the amount we make - curious what drives people outside of the $$? Is it meaningful work? Or life balance? Or prestige? Or relationships and experiences etc?

I’m driven to make a large impact in the lives of those around me. A good portion of that requires large amounts of capital,resources, and time.

So I actively work to claim every dime I can from corporate America, reinvest it in my community to make more, and once I get to the point I can get off the hamster wheel I plan to use my time and money to double my efforts.

Frankly in terms of my day job, I see myself as a mercenary and will work wherever as long I’m maximizing my $/hr.
