When Does the Pain End :(

I am just wondering when do the bentlys the astons the Rolex come from anymore. I just started working at a BB im early 20s making 88k but the ceiling doesnt seem as high in terms of pay to buy all these nice things people seem to always have. is everyone scamming or having a ultra successful side business? Im just confused on to how you can buy nice things go on nice vacations have a second house anymore with these prices

Did we just miss the days of writing your own commision and theres no way to get anything nice anymore besides starting a tech company or rug pulling shit coins on reddit.

If you went to Investment Banking just to be able to buy Aston Martins, Rolex, and beach houses then you have a serious problem...

Maybe you should just quit your job and leave the spot to someone who really loves the industry and appreciates the opportunity.

Learn to code...but seriously you should watch How to get Rich without Getting Lucky podcast by Naval Ravikant. You need to have a skill and craft and finance isn't a skill.
