25 years old, 3 YOE living in the Midwest, TC 124-138K remote, 8 hrs/day, with 2-3 travel days per month.
For reference that translates to around 215k in Seattle.
I think I'm doing alright!
Redo your calculations to figure out how much you'd need to earn in Seattle to invest the same amount after taxes. I guarantee it's not $215k, unless you insist that the only way to live a good life is to pay a mortgage on a large house. Keep in mind that WA has no state income tax.
