A.) Most of them are lying. I know better than to think that somebody who can hardly form a coherent sentence and lacks a high school diploma (let alone undergraduate qualifications or even an AA) is somehow making twice what the average American family does each year.

B.) Almost all of those who aren't lying are in dead-end niche jobs, usually in the tech and/or sales fields. There's nowhere to go from there but low level management, which usually results in a sizable paycut followed by years (sometimes decades) spent working their way back up to their former income.

I had a friend who, at 19, was usually making over $50k per year selling cars. At that point, I was making maybe $6-7k, 80% of it during the summer working menial jobs at golf courses and such. Fast forward a couple years...he's still making $50-60k per year (waiting, he says, to go into real estate) and probably will make that (or the equivalent, compensating for inflation) for the next decade. At that point, I'll probably have made at least five times what he has during the same period, including the head start he got out of high school.

Good things usually do come to those who wait.

I'm a single 27 year old Marine SSgt in Hawaii and I make about $60k a year. Now keep in mind that my "base" pay is about $2,600 per month but I (the military) get compensated for many of our living expenses each month on top of that. ($1650 for houseing, $450 for "cost of living" $270 for food and $250 for flight pay). This all adds up but, but as you all know so do the bills. Oh, and I stared my career right after high school.

I just turned 19. I have been making $60k for a bit after getting out of college, but now I'm starting my phd so it's only about $35k now.

Props to all you young business owners out there , I wanted to start a company, and still do, but I don't have a good idea yet. Owning a business is probably the only real way for limitless income, imo.
