Poverty Line For Each Age By WSO Standards
Here's the poverty line (USD) for each age range by WSO (and my) standards. This is annual income, not net worth.
Early 20s: $130k
Mid 20s: $300k
Are you even progressing your career? Unless you're getting your MBA, you should be making 350k easily inseat.
Late 20s: $500k
If you're not a VP or in PE/VC/point you're way way behind.
Is your career stagnating like the Nikkei 225? Get your shit together, or you'll enter your 40s unmarried.
You should easily be a MD/partner/equivalent in PE/VC/HF by now. If you're even a slight rainmaker, you'll clear $5mm at the minimum.
50s and 60s: $35MM
Have you been jacking off your whole life? If you land any decent PE MF partner seat, you should be clearing mid 9 figures easily. If you went into politics or any other ivory tower, easily high 10 figures.
