Exponential. How do I help her understand? She is a government employee with set income table. I switched careers at 40 and now income is based on AUM.

Has income been going up?

On a base until AUM income eclipses base. About 6 months from that. We get a lot of new monthly contributions to accounts, so I flow about $100k in new money a month just from that. At current growth rate I'll flow $1.5mm in 2020 and $2 mm in 2021, and that does not count rollovers. I know that's nothing in NYC, Miami, L.A. etc, but in a small market in the midwest that's not bad.

It seems political. What are your thoughts?
