I really wasn't trying to insult you. I was curious more than anything as to what your secret was for finding the time.
I joined GC really just to learn more about other Greeks and such, and I've definitely gotten that. In the process, if I can learn some of the finer points of Investment Banking, then I'm all for it. I just couldn't imagine working that much and then having the sanity to come on here and post let alone being able to walk straight. I guess I will never know!
To answer your original question though, I'd certainly like to be in the big money. However, the route I've taken probably won't allow that for a little while (I just received my MBA but am pursuing a career in Higher Education Administration). Really, until I receive a doctorate I won't be in the big money.
But, just like you, this requires patience and hard work. Both of which I have. And they are definitely needed in the industry that you are in. But if you can stick it out, more power to ya!
