Are you a H.E.N.R.Y?

[High Earner, Not Rich Yet]

Sound Familiar?

Day in and day out you continue to work to advance your career/small business and achieve even more success. You’re not sure you'd call yourself wealthy, but you’re definitely not thinking too hard before making day to day purchases. You have a general idea about how much you should be saving (the 20% rule) - but whether or not you're actually doing it is a different story. You probably feel a little guilty from time to time but nothing that's keeping you up at night. 

If any of this sounds similar you’re most likely a H.E.N.R.Y. Here are 5 more signs that you are a "high earner, not rich yet"...

1) You work hard, play hard.

You feel good about how much you make "dollar-wise", but it seems like every time your paycheck hits, it gets spent with little to nothing left over at the end of every month. A few years ago you thought if you made what you made today, you’d have SO much extra money. But as your income has increased, so has your lifestyle - and why shouldn't it?

2) you find yourself having to adult

Although you haven't quite given up the ways of your 20s completely, you find yourself in the middle of making decisions like buying a house, having kids or joining finances with your significant other. There are many other decisions that will feel very familiar to your as a H.E.N.R.Y but these are just a few.

3) compromise isn't in your vocabulary

It's a general trend of our generation because we've seen our parents and grandparents sacrifice for decades to make sure we didn't have to. And although it'd be a stretch to say we aren't earning everything we have, we also know that we aren't giving as much thought to our future as they'd probably like us to - YOLO.

4) Technology is in your DNA

H.E.N.R.Ys span the Millennial and GenY generations. Part of what defines us is that we grew up around technology and are very comfortable utilizing it to streamline our life and our finances. We trust the advice we receive online and are very fast at cross-checking facts and referencing multiple sites before coming to our own conclusions.

5) Work/Life Balance is Very important

Technology was created to make our life better and we expect it to do just that. One study found that Gen Y employees want to spend 30%-70% of their time at home. Whether we work corporate or for ourselves, we all seek a better balance and more flexibility.
