You make in one month what most people don't make in a year, yet drive a 10 year old car? That's not something you see every day.

I sure hope to be making that kind of money when I get older ! Right now I bring home 4000$ before taxes. I'm 20. I still don't know what I want to do for a career.

Things only came together this May. I'm a simple person, I like the e46 allot, don't really feel the need to replace something I like.

+1...seems like a waste of time to work the 8-5 job when you are pulling in that kind of coin in your business...

That's good money at 20...I was making $3k a month when I got out of school working at a CPA firm. Good job.

For the first time since I started my side business in 2008, the side business will generate more profit than my day job. Although that may change next year as I had one big client this year.

$4416... It also depends on where you live... If I worked in Cali I would make much more, but would also have higher expenses. Oh, and I graduated in May.
