Shannon, you’ve perfectly described what it feels like to suddenly start earning more money. I had a major takeaway when I started earning this much as well — $100k is not a lot of money all things considered. Expenses and living costs in America require at least that much money. This is a tough realization to swallow.

That’s why I encourage people to try to make as much money as possible. It’s a necessity. You’re not being selfish for doing the best you can to provide for your family. Keep hustling homie.
