Dumb question: when you do the net worth = income calculation, are you calculating it based on your current income or the income you started with? My income increased rapidly, but luckily I made my net worth equal to the current income when I was about 31 even with that increase.

If we're talking about net worth = starting income, I hit it when I was 29.

I took that to mean current income. If it was starting income, then I met that a few years back.
