...and what kind of lifestyle is realistic to the money you hope to be earning?

I don't have a clue about what sort of money I need to be comfortable (comfortable imo, anyway) so just thought I'd gather some ideas

£35,000 would be nice and comfy I think.

10 years... no idea, money's not my primary goal.

If I can earn any kind of a living doing a job that I enjoy, I'll be happy. Ideally, though, probably 25K or so. That would be great.

Depends if I get published, how much the public like my books, and how good a deal I get.

I'd like to not have to worry about money - but even more, I'd like to have enough to achieve various goals - mainly focusing around helping other people.

I don't know; as long as I have enough to pay rent, and to eat, I'll be happy. I don't yet know how much that'd be.

I'm expecting around £12k a year though.

Hopefully, based on what the guys at work and a bit of asking around who've been doing what I'll be doing for 10 years, 40-85k or somewhere there abouts - a 'consultant' at my work gets paid £3000 for 9 hours work over 3 days! thats at least 6k a week, 10k.. a MONTH on average, 100k a year overall. Part of me will be happy with a house of my own, part of me will always want something a bit more than that.

Realistically, I think if I stay in what I'm doing now I should be on at least 60k which would be good. I have expensive tastes!!

I could do with £20,000. But secretly, I'd like to earn a "lot".

A 'healthy' ammount. I can't really put a figure on it because I don't know what will be considered healthy in ten years time.
However in ten years I plan on being self-employed, so I presume it would be down to how successful my company will be.

20k plus. Of course I'd like to be rich, but I don't think research scientists earn that much, which is my dream job. Or one of them

Probably around 50K, but as I'll be starting on around 25k its not too unrealistic. (especially if i include bonuses)

If I'm still working for someone else, £70k mark.

If it's my own company, who knows.
