Imagine your TC is $$$$$$ what would you do?
Imagine your TC is 270k (Base 180k, RSU 50k, Bonus 40k) what things will you buy / mortgage / rent / lease/ finance, how much would you save per month, consider having kids if you have family, food, night outs, entertainment, 401, investments, travel, medical, etc...?
*** Make sure:
- To give numbers for each of the things that you mention
- To mention your current TC, age, location
I understand the answer to this question will defer person to person but that's the beauty of it. We can all learn from each other.
Note: the reason I picked 270k is that it's not a low TC and at the same time it's not too high.. it's somewhere in the middle so that we feel the constraints but still we have enough room to do some of the things that we think are important us.
