  1. It's how much you save that's important - the papers always focus excessively on how much one EARNS.

  2. How much one can save should be linked to how much one earns.

  3. The amount that they receive in the initial working stage will set their type of lifestyle. They will not be able to get anything lower or a lower lifestyle standard. Musicwhiz hit the jackpot; it is how much you save that can be later used for investment.

    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Is that data reliable? My peers do not even earn anything near that range! Most of use graduate and throw away our cert. We ended up doing small scale business because we get to earn at least 3-5k /month and we do not have to answer to our "bosses"
