Answer: Your earnings are really a function of where you are in the world, and with what type of company you work with. If you work a corporate job in the U.S. and are good at what you do, you likely could make over $100,000 after 5-7 years. If you are very good and establish yourself strategically within the company, then of course you could make a lot more.
If you join a Wall Street related firm (investment bank, hedge fund, asset management company, private equity) then you likely will make over $250,000 after 5-7 years, and maybe even more.
If you are an independent consultant with your own business, you likely will reach about $100,000 per year after 5-7 years but could be on a path to grow your business into a multi-million dollar consulting firm.
