I'll probably go that route, too, but my wife is in public interest and will be lucky to crack $70k someday. Anyway, seems like things are really breaking your way. This is how the middle class spends its 30s and 40s, I guess.

anything where you don't sit in an office, of which there are many. Good friend is the head of a group that runs a bunch of restaurants...that sounds interesting. Another that runs a huge summer camp company. Another that runs an advertising and marketing firm. Another that runs a real estate development company. Problem is that I'm not creative and risk makes me miserable (even the little I take now).

we will. That is what we had when I was in biglaw...but then I left to go to a smaller firm, she moved to contract work...then lost her contract work job, and things got tight. My bonus is guaranteed, but paid at the end of the year, so for about 5 months we were living on just my $200k base, which is tough in SF with a family. Its a good day.

at my company, $200k is the max compensation one can receive (includes senior execs) so bonus is everything. it'd be nice to have some of that comp upfront, particularly when i have a bigger mortgage.

Yeah, sorry about that, brother. I guessed at how much you'd bring home. I originally wrote 250k, but thought that might be a bit low. I mean, how could the government justify taking nearly 40% of one's income?!?

Thanks for confirming the sadness. How much does 400k work out as take home?
