    $400k and you’re not happy. Time to work on your personal life.

      Do anything to get started. What’s stopping you? With a cushion of 400k you can do pretty much ANYTHING YOU WANT. No need to ask others what to be doing. Just get out there and do what makes you happy.

      Agree with previous advice - you are not ready and passionate enough to start something of your own right now , neither ready to let go of salary carrot . You need more time

      Join FB or Google. You'll probably have a dramatically different experience.

    400k TC/Y? Sheeeeeeiiiiit, I'd marry the fuck out of you and wash all the dishes. Money clearly is not making you happy.

    This is the braggiest 1% problem if I've ever heard one. Seriously wtf is wrong with you, OP?

    Hey guys, I'm making $2MM. :( I don't know what to do with my life and all this money. What do you guys think? I think I can really use some jealousy from strangers to fuel me.

      Idiot! The OP has been replying clarifying her intentions. You obviously have a jealousy issue with her TC and cannot look beyond that. Go browse some comp threads.

      OP, my suggestion is to look at big companies but on specific orgs that are more innovative. You probably need to invest time in networking and attending some of the tech conferences. I wish you well.

      ^ this... My perception was that Yfmi76 was intimidated and insecure by the OP’s assumed gender.

    If you want money, start your own company. That’s the only way you’ll truly be wealthy

      Sure, but you’ll never be a billionaire working for somebody else. If you want to attain true monetary wealthy, you have you build something yourself rather than build off of somebody else

      Yes, his point is that there are tons of hurdles that way - and if money is your only criteria you will definitely stumble on the way
