[quote]I think around 80k is a great balance between job and having a life. Once you start to hit 6 figs, stress and job requirements take a toll on your life. I just took a large pay decrease, and couldn't be more happy about the decision. Working 70 hrs a week and weekends is not for me. [/quote]
