I'm a physician in my early forties. I make $450-500K. I read a lot about finance and I know that technically I am in the 1%, but I don't feel rich at all.
Single Mom: I'm 42 years old, divorced, and a single mom of three elementary school-age kids. I work in the administration of a nonprofit. I live in a Maryland suburb of D.C.
I'm 30 and have a lot of money at my disposal (As in a few million dollars? For some reason the question mark makes me feel less weird writing that).
I get monthly deposits from investments in a family partnership.
From managing an upscale restaurant and dating a DJ to raising twin girls and owning a home.
I have a trust fund that was originally set up for me by my grandfather in the early '80s and has a complex set of ramifications that dictates how the money is allocated and distributed.
