So I work in an industry that is very niche. I graduated magna cum laude from a top target school, did management consulting for awhile, and then moved into something in sales with somewhat low hours, pretty minimal travel, and when I do travel, unlike in consulting, it's usually international and to major city centers. It definitely fits my interests completely and allows some creativity on the job.
Anyway, nowadays, I manage to put away about 40K-60K per year. I'm age 27, and I have $250K saved, most of which is invested in a low cost index fund and bonds which give me about 5%-6% per year. So I'm passively making about $12,500 per year from investments.
My field isn't one where I am going to have that many promotions in the short-term, although I am considering going out on my own and doing some entrepreneurial work within the industry if I'm able to get some funding from someone, which is definitely possible. So although it's possible I'll make more, to be conservative, I am going to say, I will save, bare minimum, $30K per year based on my base salary, and at most, $70K or maybe $80K per year, for the foreseeable future.
Clearly, I'm not putting away as much as many of my colleagues that went down the traditional path of investment banking or consulting, and stayed on it, but I really have a genuine passion for what I've been working on these last several years and have had a good quality of life.
So my question is: Am I on an okay track? I would rather just continue to do well in my job and save as much as I can than go to business school, which some of my friends have told me to do. Any thoughts?
