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).

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.
