Age when you first made 100k at your job
Looks like I'll hit this for the first time this year. I'm 36,so I'm probably far behind a lot of you.

I grew up extremely poor, and this is what I considered "rich" back then. Ha. Definitely not rich, but this is a very important accomplishment for this poor country boy.

You're doing far better than most. I'm 26 and it doesn't feel like I'll ever get there.

All relative. I know people that never sniffed that salary and yet still retired comfortably around age 60. Not what you make, but what you spend.

Absolutely agree. There are probably people who make less but have more. But man, it feels good to check this off the bucket list. My dad would be proud.

26.

Edit: and I was proud of it but was also remarkably surprised how not a whole lot was different really.

Came very close at 25 in the south.

Slightly surpassed 200k at 26 on the west coast.

Not exactly apples to apples comparison, though.

Probably around 40 and I'm 56 now. Save hard. I've saved more in my 50's than I did in my whole career. Get debt free ASAP. Crazy what you can save when you have no bills.

This. I get the occasional check for 2k and I flip out lol. I doubt I'll see 100k anytime soon, if ever.

Its a very important accomplishment for anyone... The median household income in the US if 51k.

Be proud of what you will accomplish. Like others have said, make sure you are investing appropriately, but I wouldn't go too far. You have to enjoy it while you can, you can save save save and never enjoy all of your hard work. Enjoy your money too, because you never know when your day will come.
