    i'm 19 now...gotta finish undergrad and law school before we see what i can do.

    but there's no doubt i'll know for sure by the time i'm 29-30 if i'm going to make millions or just $50k a year. wide open right now, lol.

    considering the line of work i want to get into, probably never.


    You could have just said never.

    I became a millionaire at 1 minute old. Beat that, fuckers.

    At -9 months.

    Didn't last, though.

    Would be interesting to see some actual projections and outlines of people's plans to get there and not just wishful thinking/random guesses [​IMG]

    I'd like to be there by 35. I have somewhat of a plan involving rental property that would put my net worth at $1m+ by that time, or at least well on the way to it. Concentrating on buying a home to live in first, though.

    Millionaire/wealth to me = net worth. Liquid wealth is either being wasted doing nothing (not working for you), or being spent. Both of which are good ways to end up poor again.

    What if you were one but then knocked out of that category due to the economy? I would consider that the very definition of "small timer." I mean, how nouveau.

    Doesn't this happen to you constantly when you convert your earnings to Canadian dollars?

    You know, I have an extreme amount of cognitive dissonance over that these days. Growing up, it was as much as 40% towards the USD. No idea what PPP is like now though. I figure it tilts drastically to Canada, as only millionaires do not die from lack of health insurance in the US. [​IMG]

    Jeez. If I want to become a millionaire, I'd have to divorce my wife first, and we all know how much THAT helps the cause of personal wealth. Catch-22.

    Actual projection: the day my parents pass away. Seriously. Not really wishful thinking though [​IMG]
