Personally, i was happy with my pay, until right now, trying to get a second investment property going and STRESSED as hell about cashflow and dealing with the solicitor/banks/builders/agents/all those middlemen...i'm actually taking a break from hours of number crunching, need to vent off some stress on this forum and have a chat to you guys...Sux being a sucker with a regular job, wish i was smart enough to be a businessmen or property developer etc...
As with the job i like it, i don't LOVE it...i don't hate getting out of bed every morning like i did at highschool...if i could do it all over again i'd be a chef..
anyway enough bout me, how bout you guys?
I am happy with my pay, but unhappy with what I get to keep for my family. I am fortunate enough to do what I enjoy in an industry that pays well.
Doing the math, though, there will come a time when I will be better off quitting my often 24/7 work to get out of the crosshairs of every organization that punishes "rich" people in the US and join the ranks of the takers.
I would be a whitewater raft guide/ nature guide if money were no object.
