There's quite a few high pressured jobs in the City working with finance that will easily pay £70k onwards. This is what a lot of people don't want the GTR to be focusing on - the next toy for the city boys (like Porsche's have become).

You could also own your own company and get £70k if you know what you're doing. Again, looks like an awful amount of money but can obviously be done - depends how clever and commited you are in certain industry's. Plus demand helps.

to use the car as much as I would like as it does 150 miles on a tank that sets me back almost 60 quid.

to buy a decent sized house on a tube line.

70k gross is about 48k nett, not even a grand a week, not a lot.

I can earn a grand a week nett, but as a subby I get no paid holidays, or bank holidays, and too many gaps between contracts and that fks it up.

I agree, 70k gross isn't actually that much. Especially if you live in london and have a reasonably sized property to pay mortgage on.

I am lucky enough to have flexibility in earnings anywhere from around 85-150k+ depending on how much I want to work. I value my free time more than I value earning a lot so I choose to go for the lower end of this scale. Life really is too short not to enjoy yourself.

You did not have to pay attenion in school just being smart and working hard is enough.

I started with the company I work for as 10.5K a year Tech Support Trainee - I am now the Commercial Director of a 50m I.T company.

Life is what you make it - unless someone upstairs deals you an unlucky hand - as for city boys, I know a few and they aint all smart some are just where they are coz they know the right peeople.

My MD started the company from his lounge - he is not what I would call an interlectual but is is so sharp and has such great foresight it makes the mind boggle.

I could not agree more. What's the point of working yourself to death and have no time to enjoy the money you earn. I see what I earn as x-amount for paying bills (living expenses), everything else is regarded as my personal profit, which I use to live the life I have chosen.

If I want a much better life style, then I have to put a lot more work in and get much more - but for now I am happy living a life with very little responsibility.

As mentioned earlier by someone - life is what you make it. I HATE people who criticise others who have a lot because the chances are they too had just as much chance as the successful person to do something, except they chose to go down a different path. Everyone is different and everyone has different priorities.

I earn LESS than the first figure (£15,000) yet I manage to have a high BHP GTST.

How ANYONE could say £1,000 a week or £70,000 a year is NOT alot of money is frankly an idiot.
