If you make the SF minimum of 250k/yr, after tax you should have about 150k which is about 12k a month to spend. Here's how you should break it down: 1k-Rent 5k-Clothing 1k-Food 3k-Hookers 2k-Blow whats left-savings

Analytics is not for everyone, I think only you alone can decide whether you have the skillset or not to do it.

Say I buy the humidor you posted, what do I do in terms of maintenance to keep the cigars the right humidity and temperature? I'm quite confused on all the gels/foams etc I would need to use.

Live like a monk for 2 months and pay off your credit card debt, and in the future, don't spend money you don't have.
If you can, you should pay off your debts, because paying 9% interest is way more than you could get with savings unless you were a fairly savvy investor or very wealthy. If you have student loans odds are the interest rate is way lower on those than 9%.
