My boss probably makes 6-8 times what I bring home but there is no way I would change lives with his. He is constantly stressed to the max, up all night, and work incredibly long hours for 10 years to get there. Not worth it imo.

Best part, though, is I'm living international so it's all tax free bitches


Either you're lying or you're not a US citizen. US citizens get taxed on income over $97k.

Yeah, the income is good right now. But if I can keep it up for another 4-5 years my plan is to downsize the stress, commute, workload and of course income. The kids won't be young forever and I am itching to put my career on cruise control. Half of the income would be fine with me.

Why do you feel this way? I would like to make a little more money, but I am glad I don't feel inadequate.



Don't feel inadequate... until I read this thread. That was mostly a joke, I mean I don't make enough that I go buy a new car simply because I want it, but the bills are paid and I haven't worried about money in a long time, which is enough for me.

How do you like Cox? I might consider it if I get close to a full ride. It would be awesome to not have to move again.

Where do you travel I've done contracts in Bakersfield Ca and San Ramon Ca. My fiancee and I traveled for a year and then just took jobs out here to be more stable until we moved back home in a few years.


I travel all over, mostly out west though. Currently in Denver. I've worked in Bakersfield in the past. Where are you at now? I've thought about taking a f/t position again in the bay area. The pay there is ridiculous.

Sorry for the hijack.

There is some truth to this. A business or job can become a monster you have to keep feeding. I was happier when I made less but had much more time. What time and dollar amount is different for everyone. I was making about 350-400k and worked about 28hours/week. I could buy or do whatever I wanted but still had time to actually do it. I'm certainly not overworked now, but I feel drained all the time. It's hard to find that perfect balance and even harder to maintain it once you do.

Value your free time and spend less than you make. That's the secret.

you must be some kind of rare specialists for that kind of cash. Several MD's in the family and they would have to work much more then that to make $350 plus

I do similar work overseas and my company covers all my taxes as a perk of working overseas. Lots of oil company do that for their employees. I have to pay US taxes but my company adjusts my pay to make sure at the end of the year all my taxes are covered so essentially i clear over $200k without having to send a check to the IRS at the end of the year.

I know plenty of docs, FP's and specialist, that make that much. It depends on what and how many procedures you do and your overhead. Of course in rural areas, our overhead is MUCH lower.


ETA-all own their own practices and are not employed physicians.

Yeah I lucked up. Unless you develop the entire Park yourself, a lot of time someone else owns the lot, so you owe lot rent. My trailer is down a regular street in WBR so I was able to get the lot and the trailer. An uncle of mine owns a number of trailers in a trailer park. Fixes up old ones and charges like $750/mo. $$$$$

I forgot O&G companies adjust for that.
