VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
You know what else must pay six figures? Writing crappy articles for MSN. That's because you must be sucking the boss of simultaneously for such journalism to suck so badly.
To plan your career and life on the hope you reach the top 10% is dreaming, not realistic. If you hit the top 10% great, that is a bonus, but focus on the mean salary - that is realistic!
Salaries are not that high nationwide. For example, the national average for accountants is around $45,000 and attorneys $75,000. Sure many professionals make 6 figure incomes but most just eek out a living.
