Near as I can tell, I was at $50K at 28. I didn't get serious about finances until I was 30. So it's just in the past nine years that DW and I have worked on building wealth. I became pretty obsessed with it for a few years until the crash I read every book I could find (most of them were terrible) and was obsessed with the Wall Street Journal and CNBC. However during the crash, I got most of my true financial education (and paid a lot in "tuition"). Now in the past three years it's starting to come together. We're now well over the 1M mark and looking for 2.

That's a very fast ramp up. So all those who are just starting should take heart. It can be done.
