Income or net worth?


I get a little tired with the relentless focus on salary. The long game is not about the size of your salary, - it’s about your net worth, your equity. Salary stops at some point, but your net worth carries you forever.

Everybody who earns $100k doesn’t end up in the same financial position. So how well you live can’t have that much to do with salary?
