What was your goal salary when you graduated college for your first job? What about your salary goal for age 25? 30?

Truly I stopped setting income goals because you can easily manipulate your income in the short term to “hit a number”.

Still remember getting my first job at AIG 20 yrs ago, making $28k, was just happy to have gotten a job. I never really had a salary goal, i guess in the back of my mind that making 6 figures was something I wanted to get to at some point, but it was more important to get job experience and figuring out what I wanted to do.

Hitting the six figure mark was always something I wanted to hit which I did before age 30. But it wasn’t salary...it was based on production. Net worth was always more important to me. I mean...what did it matter what my w-2 said if I blew it all? My net worth goal was $1mil before 40 and $2mil by 45. Focus on the process and not the end goal Good luck.

My goal was 100k by 25, which I missed by a couple thousand, but made more than I’d ever seen before. Blew it all and then some on travel over the next year because I thought I’d made it, started a firm, back up to that in fee income now at 29. Goal is 1mm at 40.

SO has issues keeping it up. I’ve asked what I can do to make it easier/more enjoyable/etc. but he just has to be in a very specific mood. Understandable but disappointed as I have a higher drive
