Should I move, or am I good where I am?
Recently I have been talking to few of my friends/colleagues who moved to east/west coast, and they say that I am making very less when compared to tech industry, and am not taking enough risks to raise my TC.
I know that I don't make much when compared to folks from Bay area. There is always going to be some place where we can make more, but I wanted to avoid chasing TC my whole life. So I chose to settle down in Midwest because of factors like COL, WLB, comfort zone etc. Not sure if my thought process was right or not.
I wanted a quick double check from friends here if a move will be worth financially for my family, or if we are just ok where we are. Attached is a snapshot of how much I can save as a household in Midwest (didn't buy a 🏠 yet).
Note: I am intentionally not disclosing my TC because I want to get feedback mainly on savings rate.
