How many of you are actually wealthy? What is your job?
>Is this a good summer look?
uh my grandparents are wealthy and i know all the people in the wealthiest area of Dallas if that counts.
I have about 30k in investments right now, and i'm modeling here for my 'job' and about to goto NYC on the 21st to try to get another agency and hopefully a job to move there.
/fa related, no I don't really like the look.
not particularly wealthy compared to my friends but I'd like to consider myself more of a middle class
I work hard by going to university full time, working full time and helping out with running my parents businesses and managing land
I also am an insecure little shit that spends all my money on visvim + japanese brands
I work 60-70 hours a week.
I have friends who do computer and IT stuff and they make over six figures at my same age.
85k at my age is more than I ever could have predicted, but compared to a lot of the people I know in NYC, it isn't a whole lot.`
i'm not wealthy at all so I have nothing to add to that aspect of the conversation, but there is nothing fashionable about that outfit.
it's not hideous and you wouldn't offend anyone if you were to wear something like that. but it's very boring and kind of uptight and something that a frat-star or a stereotypical country club father would wear.
you won't be doing anything different or groundbreaking by "fashun" standards, and that's ok. you would literally just blend in.
My family is fairly wealthy, I don't necessarily have complete access to it.
I have ~$100,000 in savings and investments, this is thanks to my parents (as do both my brothers). I have 0 debt after graduating college.
My dad makes close to $300,000 a year on salary, plus a lot more on stocks and consulting... But I'm not sure the exact number. He has a couple million saved.
We own 3 houses and an apartment, 1 house and apt in a wealthy metropolitan area, one large house in the south, 1 in a Scandinavian country.
I am extremely lucky and try not to take it for granted, I never acted like a brat or flaunted money or anything like that. I intend to make enough money so that in the future, I can take care of my parents. The only time I really spend a lot of money is on clothes.
My parents earn together around 300k a year, so I'm upper middle class here. I am a full time university student and in between what they give me and what i earn (mostly working on saturdays) I earn 30k a year, which is nice considering they pay all of the bill (insurance, uni tuition, phone) and I get to pay for everything else (leisure and what not). However, local price are very high here, so 30k a year does not allow me to play it like a boss
My parents are middle-class. I joined the military a month before I turned 18 so they would not have to pay for my college. I worked full-time and saved enough money to where I can live off of my savings while going to school for free. I'm not rich but I do have a lot of money compared to people my age (20). That being said, I'm very stingy and refuse to pay >$100 for a single piece of clothing.
I'm in college still at an internship making about 40k annually.
Parents paying for everything, tuition, rent, books, food, and cars.
Saving most of my money and spend the rest on fun and cool shit.
Life is good. Not rich, but its good.
I come from wall street money and have never worked an honest day in my life. I'm from fairfield county CT so I can only speak to what works here. That kind of fit works although most people would go with leather drivers and a less tacky watch.
Side note: I will not post a fit because you faggots will say it's "Dadcore". People don't get that around here people don't dress based on fashion they dress based on tradition.
I own a business that makes thousands a week but I pay myself less than minimum wage due to so many overheads like shop rent and electricity and stock. So I work 7 days a week 24/7 for less than someone on unemployment benefited makes, this will all be worth it in the end right guys?
Why don't you move?
Australia is literally hell.
>sharks in water
>spiders on land
>skin cancer from the sun
I did Computer Science when I was 20 and got a Masters degree so that gave a good impression. I also started coding when I was 16 so it was pretty easy learning programming in the course. When I graduated I got an internship in Google so that gave an even better impression but I realized software wasn't very enjoyable to work with so I got a job in video games.
My parents are both doctors and pay for my college tuition and costs, while I pay for recreation only with what I make over the summer. I'll be an engineer in a couple years and will then be upper middle class.
>mom makes 140,000 a year
>mfw dad is unemployed by choice
Not quite wealthy yet.
Buddy and I started a wireless company earlier this year and already en route to make 40k/yr at 21 years old.
The way business is picking up, should be at about 80k+ next year
My father earns > $1,000,000 a year, but none of that trickles down to me except in the form of free rent and food.
I earn $50,000-55,000 per year, depending on bonus.
The real benefit to family is the support they provide to fall back on and the values they inculculate. Who cares about inheriting in your 60s.
I can't move because my business is a physical shop and I'm locked into a lease. But yeah I hate Australia the worst thing is that most Australians seem to be under this delusion that Australia is the best country in the entire world and that we have the highest standards of living (we don't!)
Anyone gone from poorfag to rich?
Currently trying to line up an entry level IT job which I'll be making 2k+ a month, and I'll be putting $600 into living expenses, $500 into savings, then invest $500 and have $400 for fun spending.
Once I get a cushion going with my savings though I'll starting investing 1K a month. Does that sound like a reasonable way to become a richfag while working my way through college? Investing doesn't seem too hard if you put in your research.
>stay at home son
full time son here
I make 12 million a year running an Ecommerce operation in Korea, also make about 4-5 million from modeling. Mostly I'm a stay at home boyfriend though, as my wife makes about 5 million a MONTH.
So many liars ITT.
My dad invented something almost all of you have probably seen on infomercials. He was middle-class before, but it made him very wealthy. I think he's currently worth around 8 million? Not sure.
I have a trust fund account, but I still work. 30 hours a week in a local independent book store, because I like it. No one I work with knows I'm wealthy. I dress nice, and they compliment me a lot, but they have no idea I probably spend more on clothes in a week than I make in an entire month.
>tfw you'll never be infomercial rich
>you'll never experience the power of oxiclean
>Canadafag here, my parents are paying my $120k uni tuition, and my grandparents have offered to pay my $100k masters when i finish.
Holy fuck that's expensive. I got my degree in London for less than a fifth of that.
I'm poor. I earn about 14K GBP. but I still live at home with free food and board so its 100% disposable.
I think my dad is worth just over a million but its all in property that he rents out. He is retired and lives off the money he gets from tenants.
Wow amazing, dude. Thanks for all that insight. Sorry, I though I was in "Who here is wealthy?" thread not "Who here is middle class?" thread.
The point, if you had any reading comprehension or were capable of acknowledging context, is that $80k is not rich.
No shit $80k is a lot for someone with a BA because a BA is trash.
I don't have a job. My parents have a bit of money, but we don't really talk about it. They help out with things I couldn't afford on my own, like travel (sometimes), tuition and therapy. For the most part, I am responsible for how I spend the money that I'm given
Plebs can read, we just want to participate. Also if everyone on /fa/ posts in this thread OP can get a more realistic feel of how many people on /fa/ are wealthy and how many are poser scum like me. Good day sir.
holy damn yall rich as hell
dad worth about 1 mil + in properties
mum worth nothing (divorced)
i work full time and blow it all on mid tier clothes (neighbourhood, Our Legacy) and nothing
get little support from either
education wasnt important in our family, dad only made his money through sheer commitment to a cause (union) and a rich gf
>tfw working class scum
how i gonna make it
>I'm not gonna find out who your dad is and email him that his kid posts on the gayest board of a pedo website or anything
No, but I might. (tee hee)
though to be honest probably not, i'm way to lazy and dont give a shit.
So who is wealthy? Definitely not me. But I'm from Russia and its kinda middle class concerning to little town where I live. The average salary in my town is about 6,3k/year so everything not as bad as it could be.
32 year old male
250k a year
1.2 million net worth.
I just bought my first property too. I live on a 60k a year budget for the most part. It feels comfortable to me.
I don't have a bad ass job, I'm a manager at a hotel. I've been investing since I was 18. I would probably have a better position but the market has been real trash in the US since I've been 18. I started with gold in 2003.
My parents really aren't wealthy, but aren't poor by any means. They live comfortably with enough disposable income to enjoy things like eating out at restaurants, holidays, funding personal hobbies etc. They are going on a 5 week trip to Spain in September, and are always offering to help me out with rent/money and stuff, to which I humbly decline.
As for me, I'm still at uni and have worked in a well paying, casual job as a waiter for the last three years. I've managed to save up a bit, but have also spent a fair bit (on holidays, etc.). I'm currently on exchange through university in Japan, and i'm planning on extending it to a year, however i've had to pay for it myself as opposed to putting it on my govt. loans, which is fine, as I've got my savings which covers it comfortably. I'm always pretty careful and conscious about my spending though. I should probably invest it somehow
My family is poor, except for my grandfather who is worth a few million. I'm not a very sharp, clever, or talented person. I want to become rich and have smart, good children, though. I know it probably isn't going to happen, but I'm going to give it my very best shot. If I fail, then nobody will be able to truly say that I didn't try.
>live on a dime
>one week poor, the next can afford dinner
>clothes are a dream
AYE STEP UP LMAO ;_;
I have about 17k€ and I'm about to enroll in a Languages and Literatures degree. I have no idea what I want to do in the futute but I'll be 24 and broke when I finish my degree.
Am I taking the right path? It's either this or working shit jobs in construction and shit like I've been doing since I left high school.
I'd gladly do that, but what do I do when my money runs out? I'm almost 22 already and still have no idea what I want as a career. I don't want to be working minimum wage jobs until I grow old, I've met people like that and they're miserable
Not sure how much dad makes but know it's over 300,000 a year. company he worked for got bought out two years ago and they paid him a million dollars (obviously taxes took a lot of it). and we live in a 1.5 million dollar house. fucking mom ruins it though. controls all the finances. shops at Marshall's, never keeps a fully stocked kitchen cause she "doesn't like food to go to waist". and has never given me a dollar besides allowance in elementary school and shit. not trying to be a brat about it, it's just when your dad owns two porsches and mom owns a mercedez benz and your working two jobs struggling to cop mid tier shit like silent it just feels kinda bad.
Not him, but here is some info:
1) Don't use google to translate.
2) 99.999% people of Russia are not fa.
3) Those are very nice money for far towns, while in Moscow/Petersburgh and a few more big cities it is almost nothing (yet there are again people, who are majority, who do less). Moscow flat price is near the same as it in London.
it's weird to me reading all these peoples salaries. I'm 20 and I've been on fa for like a year and it seems like this place is just teenagers, there was even a survey saying it was mostly 15 year olds. but then I read this thread..so what's the actual average users age on here?
Not at all. Currently living off 300 EUR/month, it's working though. Probably never going to be particularly wealthy either, studying physics atm. No idea what I should do with that. Probably should have studied something more useful and easier, whatever.
Start investing your money in a mutual fund, like now. Take $100 from your paycheck, or whatever you can afford to put aside. Do this every 1-2 months, and just invest. I say a mutual fund because they do the investing for you. They always go the safe route. You may not get fat staxx back for a couple of years, but it will build up over time. The money you make from stocks, re-invest. So you put in $100, make $10, put it back in. Now you've invest $110, and maybe you'll make $20 next time. It's a slow process, but it works.
Well my parents have been doin this for me since I was born, I'm 23, and atm have $100k in savings / investments. They put in more than $100 a month I believe, so it may not be in the 6 digits till you're like 35-40, but you could make a hefty sum in 12 years. $40k is better than nothing.
they put in way much more than 100$
low to mid risk mutual funds have a return of at most 7 or 8%
If you made 100k over 23 years in mutual funds that means your parents invested a fuck ton of money
>Dad owns 2 import businesses
>Mom goes on house shopping binges, bought two houses in the last 3 years
>idk how much they actually make/have because my dad squirrels most of it away
>tfw had to transfer money into an offshore account so I could get more federal aid for college
>own a couple of houses
>teetering on shit tier annual income
I'd rent out one of your properties or use Airbnb or something. sorry for your loss but at least you have some good assets to build upon and better your own life and make him proud :-)
>tfw father's assets probably worth ~10mills
>tfw he's the kind of asian father who teaches his kids not to be dependent
>tfw he refuse to buy anything fancy unless I can justify the price or the purpose
how the fuck can I rock dick ovens, nice rollex, or driving a merc?
>tfw have to work minimum wage because of finishing school
good thing tho I have 0 debts and can get education up to master degree.
working for shitty pay teaches you the value of money and makes you become a bit more independent at that.
kid got his education paid off anyway he's a lucky kid. if he works hard he'll do well
I have a trust fund but I can only spend it on college...for now. When I graduate I inherit whatever is left which will probably be around 100k in free money and I'll graduate debt free.
>tfw poor NEET
It'd be sweet if I could stand having a real career. I may have to eventually, since I want a house and kids someday
At least I don't claim benefits/welfare etc.
My dad's family was legit old money, but his father and grandfather never worked and basically squandered the family fortune. My parents still make over 300k/year combined, and I think they'll still inherit a pretty hefty amount from their parents.
I'm going to. My mom earns 60% f the average pay in this country, pays 38% taxes, has got a house loan 3,5 times her annual salary. I was in the electrical warfare unit for 2 years and now I'm on the first year of dental/med sci path. Fuck yeah!
After looking through this thread it made me realize that everyone hates wealthy people, even other wealthy people. I'm not saying its a bad thing to be wealthy, it just feels counterproductive.
I go to college in the US and with my major I could
make 100k+ after a few years of experience but I don't even know if I want to make that much money.
Money seems like its made so many people into
shit. I'm not really saying any of you are shitty people if you're wealthy, I don't know. I'm just pretty stoned and felt like commenting. Sorry for wasting your time.
nigga unless all you're eating is fuckin ramen then
youre gunna be one hungry ass mofo and dont even
act like youre going to be smoking cigs or drinking
coffee cause one cup at starbucks is like 3 days of
food with that logic.
>mfw my dad spent all of my college fund and my mutual fund that my grandparents saved for me when i was growing up
>hasn't paid back any of it
>thinks he's going to strike it rich somehow
Well my parents are very wealthy.
But that's it.
I've seen the bank accounts states and they are disgustingly high, well pretty big for a 3rd world country like mine.
Weird enough, me and my family can't get to enjoy that money.
Talking about money in my family is a taboo like subject. I suspect they laundry money. They don't have business or a big stable job, But both of my parents own several houses all over the state. I don't know if they rent them or sell them. But I'm very intrigued.
I live in a big house. I have all the commodity of a 1st world country in a 3rd world., but after seeing a 890k USD bank account state. Of course the first thing I imagine is pair of rick tanks for Christmas.
my father is a physician and is very frugal.
>tfw waiting for my inheritance
who else knows that feel?
I fucking do know that feel
grandmother and mother
grandmother has a shitton of relatives and is too kind towards them
I have a younger sister
I just want a couple of apartments to rent and live a leisure life of a rentier
I'm not wealthy, however...
I study engineering physics with a MSc in Applied Acoustics. My breed is quite rare, and the field/business is growing rapidly.
After I graduate in one year, I'm planning on moving to Dubai and work there for some time. Dubai's having an expo 2020, it's craycray down there and I have contacts making 7-9000 euro/month.
kinda. my parents live on welfare but I go to a really good college.
The average starting pay is around 70k and 150 in three year time..
I am somehow a bit mad at my parents for being poor and leaving all scholarship fees for myself when others have a easy ride..
Are you not driven in the slightest to help others less fortunate than yourself?
You admit yourself that you're extremely lucky to have had the life you've been given, yet you don't seem the want to share that luck.
I don't begrudge you, I envy you, certainly. Be a good person anon.
Took out a loan from a relative and bought a bankrupt factory 2 years ago. 70 employees, $100K monthly revenue.
The factory now employs 200 people with $1 Million monthly revenue.
I literally bought any shit I want and write it off as R&D expenses. $1000 jackets isn't going to make a dent on the company's account. I have VERY good relationships with shitloads of online stores and they're always happy to reserve or mark values down for me when shipping.
self-employed entrepreneur or whatever you want to call it. found a network of schools, preparing kids to language exams, graduating exams, helping with uni admissions, that kind of shit. but I had a pretty good start, my family wasn't super rich, but my mother worked hard.
was very hard to decide that I dont want to pursue education/traditional career and do that instead too.
lol not trying to be secretive but there's literally only 6 factories doing what we're doing in the country I'm in. Mine is the only newcomer. It would be really easy to identify and I'm not risking that here.
No, we're a bit more upstream than that. Can't compete with China on garment manufacturing atm
he has 100k$ in savings
his dad makes 300k$ plus "a lot more" on stocks and investing
his dad has a couple million saved up
they own 3 houses
>uh, nothing special
My family doesn't own any house, my parents have about 20k saved up, they're still paying their two cars and their house is rented. They're considered middle class.
There are times when I wish I was autistic enough to do IT or engineering. Being a filmmaker is amazing but I don't make much money because of all the bureaucracy and it really limits me sometimes.
I made 21k last year. About the same this year (part time paramedic ftw).
I still saved about 3k into my travel fund TFSA. Spent 3 months in El Salvador and going to Iceland this fall.
Spent about $800 on clothes and $2-300 on comics. I'd say $2-3k on booze. Maybe $800 or so on new music gear, an amp, a sampler, etc.
Who the fuck needs to be rich? And I supposedly live in an expensive city.
I dunno man, I've got more money than I know what to do with. I don't have a car, which is a big part of it. I'd probably be happier making ~30k/year because then I could kick my roommate out and rent my house by myself and turn her room into a music studio, but other than that I don't need more money.
I'm moving up the seniority ladder, paramedic-wise, so in 3 or 4 years I'll be making 30-35k. And that's if I don't upgrade my training, which I'm planning to do in the next year or so, in which case I'll be sitting at 40-45k to start, probably around 60k in a few years.
So by the time I'm 30 or so I'll be making 50-60k/year, which is fine.
haha I did actually, a couple of times. I'm not a show off irl so I never wear crazy pieces. Pretty much lame expensive basics only. Nobody needs to know my pants cost $800.
Seriously though, in my experience, the only people who shows off are either an entitled trust fund little brat or deeply in debt.
agreed. exactly why I said he doesn't need more money, YET.
My entire family works hard, we own at least 11 properties and a couple of business in three different countries. 2 more restaurants and a couple of properties planned for next year.
Never at any point any of us ever said,"I don't need more money." That's poor people talk.
I felt compelled to reply because I can't believe that there are actually young, smart, fully capable people out there who's satisfied with making 50K a year.
Hell, my mother spends that much on handbags every couple of months.
My parents make like $140k combined and seeing them struggle when our family was younger is motivation of sorts
I'm going into my 3rd year of comp sci / econ and am making $18/h at a telecommunications company, I can't imagine making even double my current wage and having to pay for my mortgage/car/etc
I'm the guy who posted that proof above.
You're doing great, man. I only made $11/h in college working in a chinese restaurant, killing and cleaning crabs.
>fucking pro at murdering crabs now
What type of formal education do you have? Do you reckon it helped you? Or maybe even hindered you?
Can you give a ballpark estimate of the cost of buying the factory? Probably not, but I'm curious as to what kind of money you need.
