executive on the product side at a software company, strategic role, few teams report into me
had certs way back in the day CCNA, Network+ even randomly my Series 63 and 7 but haven't worked in those fields in decades (never used my 7/63)
don't feel comfortable throwing my number out there but its a little more than a 1/4 of the way into 7 figures, that's base salary
if I pull those 'total comp' numbers that the Silicon Valley bros like to pull (rsu/rmu/stock/health/blah blah blah, all of which I have) id be approaching low 5s.
I used to consult on the side but fired all of my clients not too long ago. I value time now way more than killing myself over money. but will take anything interesting/challenging. sometimes for free. don't want to get into my volunteer work in tech but that shyt is important too.
my goal is my side software project becoming an actual business and making enough money for me to own a warehouse where I do nothing but waste away my days away building and creating shyt (cnc, 3d printer, video, wood, etc).
Also, no longer in Cali full time so that money is going a lonnnnnggggggggggggg way.
