To my coli 1 percenters:

whats your education level?
How many certs do you got outside of a diploma?

If u close to 6 figures but not quite there, whats your next move to get over the hill?

Nah CFA is no more for portfolio management and behind the scenes things. Maybe thinking the CFP? But no I don't have that, requires a degree but never have lost business bc of it either.

Yeah I have my broker licenses but am a fee only planner. Fiduciary planner they call it as well sometimes. I don't do the bs 90s commission trades and sell insurance. Not good business...

Current salary - $96K, will be $99K come March. I'm basically somewhere in between a financial analyst and finance manager for a $15B global manufacturer. Really, I have manager expertise and experience but the actual position I want hasn't opened up so I still have an analyst title although they pay me more than the other analysts.

Currently my boss is interviewing for a couple positions and if he gets something, I'll be bumped up to manager making around $110K. It took me a while to get this point and I should have been at this level 7-8 years ago, but I wasn't as focused as I should have been. It was until I started to see people younger than me pass me, that I put my nose to the grindstone and started busting my ass. Ultimately, I see myself topping out at the director level making 150K-175K. But at that point, I hope to have some successful side hustles to boost my income further.

I can make 100k if I move up two stages and slide over three levels. I'll just wait for it, it should take three years of good reviews ( which is easy to get).
