Kinda depends on if I have a family and stuff to take care of. If it's just me I wouldn't really give a shit, honestly, as long as I can live independently and without going completely paycheck-to-paycheck.

Enough to be able to save, or quit working and still live comfortably for a couple months.

I don't mean to say that as soon as I've saved enough I'll do that, but that's the amount I'd like to be payed. I'm too used to barely scraping by though

I'm at around 40k now, same for my wife. We're both 29 If we can reach 100k a year for the two of us together in 10-15 years, I can't imagine ever needing anything more.

I'm making about 38k right now and it's kinda lame, so maybe I'd settle at 140k.

That's an odd jump.

Initially, 40k+. Ideally that will rise annually.

i'd like to eventually make $60,000 a year. i'm 23 and making half that*. so maybe.

i don't really care honestly. i just want to live comfortably within my means. i can do that even now so it's not something that bothers me too much. but of course now i don't have kids or anything like that. that 60,000 is just adjusting for life changes i assume will eventually happen.

* excluding the money i make from music. not sizable, but gives me a modest bump.

It's kind of a hard one to answer. With the way my expenses are right now, £40,000 a year would be more than enough to live comfortably on. But of course if I was making more money I'd no doubt be spending more so I'd want an even higher wage.

Enough to buy a BMW, a 5-bed house and a J-Custom. Around $200K?

Well... I'll be around £30-35k in debt after Uni.

So earning around £25k for a few years and then maybe up to say £30k. And maybe in later life a little more.

Should be moving up to 44-47k in the next 4-6 months here, so provided I only work 4-5 days a week 55-65k is just fine for me!
