Are you making more money now than you were 5-10 years ago?
The economy is just not what it used to be as we all know. I work in a business that has slowly declined in the past few years, (less pay for the same amount of work) and I wonder if that is anyone else's experience.
If you are talking about less pay for the same amount of work, I would agree that that has been the trend for the past 5 - 10 years. It is no longer about simply working hard, but much more about working smarter, being more productive and automating tasks where possible.
Always find ways to increase my income (passively where possible). Yes My income Triple compare 5 years ago.
No, definitely not. 5 years ago I didn't have children and I was still working in the banking industry here in Australia in a snr management role - mind you working far too many hours a day. Now I'm a mum and at home so life has changed in many many ways
Whilst the money was amazing, it does not compare to the joys I get from life now..not to mention my new found enjoyment here on HP.

If you could go back in time, say 10 years ago, what would you invest your money in?I would buy a crapload of Apple stock, I read in an article about a year ago that if you had spent $400 buying Apple stock back in 2001 instead of buying an iPod, it would be worth over $10,000 today!

The Republicans will not get away with this "Better off than four years ago" business. They already said that they will do anything to bring down the government and the first Black president. Apparently, they were prepared to destroy our nation in the process.For the most recent ...
