Lawyers and investment bankers can also make that much money. Also athletes, actors, YouTube stars, etc

*some* lawyers....sure.

The car salesman who helped me yesterday was a lawyer who left his job to make more money selling cars.

I'd say your average professional athlete (think minor league baseball), actor (bartender), or YouTube star would also be far better off selling cars. 

No, I've got Herbert pegged as some sort of criminal kingpin.  Perhaps he runs a vast underground gambling empire.

I just canít fathom the $6k spend....earnings are easy, spending limits on those earnings  - not so much. Unless there is a housing allowance involved and taxes are already incorporated.

Actually, I live downtown in a HCOL city. I own a condo which is paid in full, so that's how I'm able to minimize my housing and transportation costs (no car, I can walk everywhere). I include property taxes in my spending but not income taxes (of which I pay a LOT).

If you guys are so interested in me, read my journal! I've been posting for years.

I didn't actually look at your profile - the 27 and single now makes more sense on the spending limits and the condo you own has very low taxes...Our taxes in IL are $10,000 on a $450,000 house and 5 of us live in there. $30,000 spending for 5 would still be super low.  I may browse your journal over the weekend.

Hi All,

Iím ready to join this thread! Our NW (excluding home equity of ~$500k) hit $1.004m yesterday!

Weíre aiming for $1.4m & a paid off house to retire in Oct 2023... reaching that magical number makes it feel so much more achievable!
