What is/was your net worth at 30?

I feel I've saved way too less for my age and have wasted my 20s. Reply in below format to motivate me / rest of us.

TC : 150k.
Net worth: 35k.

Net worth is savings + 401k + stocks +investments - mortgage (+ house value, if not already part of investments)

      Everytime I see somebody makes more, there is something in me that feels unfair and wants to get even more than them. The irony is I think I have enough already :) My gatherer brain in action.

      LinkedIn.....couldn’t agree with you more. I make more $ than i thought I’d make and enough to live comfortably in the Bay Area. I turn down offers all the time for more money ...work life balance and being able to raise my kid is worth more than $ to me....i know a lot of RICH peeps who chose $/work over their family/kids. To each their own....priorities or so f’d in today’s society.

      I think at the end many just want to be respected by others and they want to get money to prove they are worth. Just my theory but I think many of us do not feel good enough and that is driving it. I work because I believe that my work may benefit the society once I will be really good at it, money is just a side product that I sometimes feel causes more stress down the road and makes me addicted to them (people are afraid to lose). Yet I believe I will use them for the cause I strongly believe in.. so I somehow still gather :) ... i am glad for your kids

      How cowardly. Instead of strategizing how to hit your goal you’d rather cop out by taking your life. I find people who find validation merely by their bank account to be pathetic and hollow.

      $6Mish in stock market right now depending on the ups and downs. over 1M in real estate (bought it for $580k in 2010).

      Could probably retire now, but am waiting 1-2 more years just to be sure I have the buffer I need.

      I don’t condone this but maybe you might want to look at it from a different perspective. I have been discriminated multiple times in my career when it comes to pay or promotion. Sharing experiences has been the only way to bring light to these issues. Same goes for the gender pay gap. Those who are irritated with these threads should be irritated with the bias/discrimination in hiring and compensation. Perhaps the intent is not the same in some of these threads.

      What do you mean by 'something very Indian' ? I grew up and continue to live in India and I can't even wrapping my head around what 'common Indian' qualities are..

      Do all American people have orange hair, wear I'll fitting clothes, dislike immigrants and are ever frothing at the mouth to start the next oil war ?

      I’m brown (from a neighboring country that is not India) and I find this mentality so ugly. It’s true re: big houses sitting empty inside. Many South Asians are so caught up in the externals - unnecessary emphasis on degrees / job status and thinking that this is what encompasses you as a person (common amongst Asians of all variety). I got lucky in that my family was quite different and valued experiences over things.

    Yes you should save for retirement, but I feel like people put way too much focus on saving as much money as they can. Enjoy your youth and make the most of it. Don’t blow your money, but be less hesitant to spend money on lasting experiences. Life is short, and that money won’t do you any good when you’re dead.

    I’m turning 30 soon and freaking out about it. Spent much of my 20s severely depressed. Only slept with like 20 girls, only a couple hotties. Was hoping to save 1M by 30, be married, and live in a big house. Only halfway to 1M, not married, renting a crap shack. No FANG offers. Albertsons didn’t even call for phone screen.

      No though but seriously, some people start their engineering careers at age 30+ and their NW is like 100k-200k since they previously earned below 6 figures. I know several people like this.

      So yeah, you’re fine. You’ll eventually get that FANG offer. Maybe even Albertsons but let’s not kid ourselves too much here.

      There are a lot of sexist comments on blind but I don’t consider this one of them.

      Husbands TC is around 160k. His NW is probably 150k without me because he got a late start in life.

      Just a friendly reminder: we are not our net worths and we are not our TC. I married a man who is an amazing dad and husband. I consider spending time with people I like my highest priority and money just lets me do more of that.

      Jun 23
    • Bloomberg / Eng iVX372
      I'd like to maximize comp while maximizing growth and learning, which seems impossible because companies generally don't pay top dollar unless you're already an expert in the required skills. I currently have the skills to interview with and potentially join FAANG as a full stack dev, but have minimal experience as an ML dev so I doubt they'd hire me for it without more experience. My comp would increase more in my next role if I remain a full stack dev
