As a young child, I wanted to be rich by the time I turned 40 years old.
However, at age 20, it seemed nearly impossible. After all, I was working for less than $8 per hour at a retail store, which netted me only $10,000 per year. When I had free time at the store, I would grab receipt paper and write down my future salary, according to my age and promotions within that particular company:
Age 22: Assistant Manager $20,000 per year.
Age 25: Store Manager-$50,000 per year
Age 30: Regional Manager-$80,000 per year
Age 35: VP of Sales-$120,000 per year
Age 40: CEO-Millions!!!
