    Most of you should've heard of the 1%. Almost all of us want to be part of that 1% as well, I'm guilty of it. I work everyday trying to build an automated system leading me to be a part of the 1% within 4-5 years.

    But I was curious to know who here is actually part of the 1% or at least considers themselves part of it. As well as how long it took you to get to that stage.

    The 1%? You could mean 4-5 different things with that.

    That would be $500k per year earners. Please, come show us all of your car keys and piles of money. I am going to guess that Meathead1234 and DD are in that club and maybe a few others who choose not to share it.

    I see no problem with 1%ers like a lot of other people seem to.

    1% Being top of society in income. Some people refer to them as the ones who truly run America. A lot of.

    "The average household income of the 1% was $1.2m in 2008, according to federal tax data" - from the website economist (not associated with them)

    Let's all hope this thread gets buried before it opens the flood gates for the CEOSams and Charlie Floates of the IM world.

    Most of the 1% inherited it, so don't kid yourself that these people are all brilliant minds who do hard work. Most of them are the Paris Hiltons of the world.

    That's not entirely true. Basically you're saying if you didnt inherit it you cant achieve it. Well how did the first people achieve it? They worked hard. It's possible to work for. Don't kid yourself, set your goals high

    ugh, another one of these "set your goals high" and poof you'll achieve it. I never said you can't eventually be the 1%, but most of those people inherited their money. It's not impressive.

    Hard work and setting goals high do not guarantee success. Like I said in another thread, no one writes about the guy who aimed high and had dreams and his investors took his company and folded it because he failed. That happens a lot more than success. Duh that's why they are the 1% and not 99% of the retards who think hard work and goals will mean success.
