  • Borrow 2 million dollars from your parents and donate 1 million to the charity.

    Then you have 1 million sharp in your bank account.

      Maybe try leetcode 198. It might help you learn how to avoid getting caught by the police.

  • Jump to FB for $500K TC per year. Assuming after tax of $350K you should get to $1 million in 3 years.

    Found your own startup. Run a crypto-currency scam. Set up a Ponzi scheme.

    At 300k, you will be 180k after tax in bay area. If you reasonable about spending, you can save 100k a year. So after 5 years you will have 500k(maybe 4 years with good investment returns)

    There aren't shortcuts...

    • If OP marries someone who is also making the same $300K then he can reach $1M in the same 4-5 years. No need to even change jobs or TC!

    A million in your checking account? That’s kind of dumb honestly. A million in assets and investments? You’ve got a lot of reading and decision making to do.

    How about a million dollar life insurance policy and jump off a bridge?

      @fps_doug...how's it greedy? Rather than dying a slow death slaving for a corporation..why not make millions dollars with instant death

      Cause you are all thinking of the best solution at the instant, but this won't give the global optimum. The optimum solution will let you have your cake (the 1 million) and eat it too (have a life in order to actually spend and enjoy that $$$)
