This is what we are on track to make through the end of the year.
- W’s base salary is $101,296
- W got a bonus of $2,865
- M’s base salary is $153,000
- M got a bonus of $11,400
Our total yearly income is (or would be if we continued our employment till the end of the year) $268,561
This puts us in the top 3% of US household income. Let’s pause for a moment and reflect on that. We are incredibly blessed to have a number of factors working in our favor, a lot of which are just plain birth circumstances. Sure, we work hard and made conscious choices to invest in college educations but that doesn’t even tell half the story.
