Unregistered_1337 31M in professional services, single

Salary: 7.4k before CPF

Allowances: $300
Tax: $200
Insurance: $400 ($300 belongs to parents)
Utilities (Water, Gas, Electricity): $150
Telephone and Internet: $150 (including parents lines)
Food: $300
Groceries & Toiletries: $150
Transport: $150
Dating: $400
Others: $200

Saving: ~5k/mth

Although I'm drawing slightly higher based on several others around my age range who have shared their details, I do however need to qualify that I have close to 10years of working experience, not in a big4 firm. Most professional who are in the Big4 would have been made a SM by the 7-8th year mark earning at least $9k gross.

I hope I can look for better opportunities during this covid pandemic, but at the same time thankful that I have a job now

Kira678 I started putting money in another account to save and it works. My rule is not to touch this money, no matter what happens. Two months ago I faced some financial difficulties because of the quarantine, I even got a payday loan here, but I didn't use the money I saved up. It was the right decision as I've already paid the debt off.

TameSilent Whoa! Just bump into this forum and into this thread. Might as well for me to consider forex and need to some research. Thanks guys for sharing - valuable

BillShiphr I don't want to share the exact numbers but I can just say that I earn enough and I do it with forex trading. Actually, my major is logistics but I decided to change my professional field when I bumped into this website. I decided to try forex after I read a couple of educational articles on this page.

Can you share your job title and industry you come from?
46yo is also a vulnerable age, not as bad as 50s but still vulnerable nonetheless.

Tech industry. I'm the most senior tech person in a mid-sized regional company.

My earning power may have already plateaued. Senior bankers, lawyers and doctors make much more than me, and their staying power (especially the latter 2 groups) are definitely stronger.

In tech, the higher you climb, the less technical (less knowledgeable) you become, which is a liability if you do not know how to play the game well (I'm still figuring it out). In law and medicine, the higher you climb, you're perceived to have more experience and more wisdom/knowledge than your younger colleagues.

If I can last a few more years with such high income, I will be very happy.
