    I'd be happy with £30,000. If none of my current plans work out I'll follow in my dad's footsteps and get myself qualified on an excavator. I absolutely hate the job that he does, but £30/hour is pretty hard to ignore (admittedly, he's very experienced).

    I guess enough to be comfortable. I want enough to have a family holiday once a year, to send my children on school trips, buy what I like each week at the supermarket etc....

    I'd like to get 100k plus, considering 50% of that is taxed here in the UK.

    At the age of 40 I'd like to be on minimum 80K, sounds money mad, but I'd like to lead a life with an extreme healthy financial security, not just for myself but for my family too (or 300 cats haha). Especially in the ongoing economic crisis this world seems to be plagued with. But I do want my job to be self satisfying and definitely not just about the money

    For all the unnecessary negs - I'm really sorry, I forgot people on TSR condemn one for wanting to do well in life and be successful.

    Right now I'd be happy to get £20k but in the future I think I'd ideally be on £30/35k. I seem to be following the crowd! I'd prefer to like my job than be on huge money. I'm not sure about what I want to do in the future but if I plan on going to the US later, then obviously I will need to be on more than that to save up and get myself there/set up without too much financial difficulty. I'd like to be comfortable enough to pay a mortgage without too much stress (not on a huge house), have a few luxuries and get a holiday or 2 during the year. In an ideal world!

    I don't know. A comfortable amount I guess. I'd rather have a job I'm happy with though. A lot of people who do the degree I'll be doing at the university I'm going to study at go into finance (around 1/3 I believe), but I don't think I could ever do that, as appealing as the money might sound, I know I'd be miserable. I don't mean to go off on a tangent, but I'm going to study geology because I like geology and I want a job in it, not because I want to make millions, otherwise I'd do an economics degree.

    Happiness doesn't need a wage!





    Is what I'd say in an ideal world. But anything above £30k is gurd.

    If all things go to plan (chances are they won't ):

    25 --> £25,000

    30 --> £40,000

    35 --> £50,000

    40 --> £75,000

    45 --> £85,000

    50 --> £90,000

    55 --> £95,000

    60 --> £100,000

    In today's terms, gross pay. Take home pay, on the other hand, :facepalm:

    If I have a debt of over £75k + interest, and working irregular hours including nights / weekends, I expect to be earning around that much...

    Enough to be comfortable on, paying all my bills, saving some and then hopefully a little disposable income left over.

    Enough so I can expand my family's real estate business with my siblings and help turn it into a long term legacy. So ideally £30k+ from day one of graduation.

    Lol what profession do you want to go into which you have such a detailed knowledge of future earnings potential? Looks like you've just grabbed some numbers and ages from thin air
