sure, suppose i lived away from the city center and took the subway to get around the city when i want. or even if i go somewhere like chicago or LA or some other large metro area.

would being in a metro for a while give me a new perspective on life that i wouldn't otherwise have? i feel like i'm missing out living in the town i was born in and not going anywhere but i don't know if it's worth it

but surely those people already experienced what the city had to offer and had no issue with moving elsewhere. i wouldn't want to live in a big city long-term, but could i learn something new by living there for a year or so?

True. The difficult option, or any option which gives the one making it agency instead of helplessly blaming the system, is the de facto anti-Reddit opinion

>> No.53809400

Factually true, as someone whose lived in both. Cities are good for hookups, and bar/club scenes aka extending your college years into your late 20s. That’s it. It’s also good for your ‘career’ until hopefully you realize the taxes and keeping up with Jones mentality kill any wealth building and that there is more to life than climbing the corporate ladder.

The ‘culture, things to do, etc’ is all a giant meme. You can do more living in Grand Rapids Michigan than New York City , and once you’re old enough that you’re not chasing ass drunk every Friday night then NYC has literally nothing to offer outside of better yet still overpriced restaurants.

Living in a smaller city/town within driving distance of a large city is the bizpilled way. Minimize living expenses/jogger proximity, maximize business opportunities.

I'm remote so the more I can minimize my living expenses the further my high wfh salary goes. I dump it all into investments.

You can build a business better (at least in some regards) in a smaller place. I mean it really depends on what your business is. If you want to run a store, the city might be better. But even then, a smallish town with a more close knit community and all the 'by local and pay out the ass' retards buy your stuff.

How are you going to start a business in some shithole like LA when mr shekelstein is charging you 2200 a month for a one bedroom ghetto apartment and niggers are robbing you weekly.

> Minimize living expenses
Minimizing expenses is not as beneficial as simply getting a higher-paying job, which for 99% of people is how wealth is created. This is literally boomer-tier advice that has been outdated for decades and has no relevance for the modern workforce. It's the same logic as "stop buy Starbucks every day" when that would have no meaningful impact on people's actual finances.
> maximize business opportunities
There are significantly fewer business opportunities in small towns, full stop. Fewer people to either provide jobs or do work, the people that are around are typically less skilled and less educated, and there is less capital floating around to do anything with. Even just saying "WFH-only jobs" means you're cutting out a significant number of opportunities that you would have if you live in a city.
At the end of the day, it's your funeral and I'll continue to do what's actually needed to provide for me and mine, but don't give me some bullshit about small towns being /biz/ when virtually every small town on Earth is poorer than their large-city counterparts. That's just a cope and goes against any factual reality.

Lol wrong. Go to any small to midsized town in america and you’ll see mansions everywhere. There’s plenty of wealth, it’s just different. Much easier to start a business, less red tape, less taxes, lower COL. Also if you can work remote then there’s a huge arbitrage opportunity there.

“Move to the big city is how you get ahead with career and money” is Scott Galloway tier dog shit advice. The average person in the country is a poor bloke, but the average person in the city is also poor as shit. If you’re business minded you can make it anywhere in America.

Difference is if you’re a college grad and go someplace mid sized you’ll have enough saved to start a family, own a home, etc by late 20s. Meanwhile do the same in nyc or Chicago and you’ll just be broke complaining on Reddit or Twitter all day, unless you are top 1% and go the banking route or something else like that

>> No.53811804


Growing income matters to a threshold, but it’s far lower than you think. Once you reach 100-150k, then managing costs is far greater to financial freedom. At that point you can reasonably reach financial
Independence in a decade or less through austerity , compared to keeping up with the Jones mentality where no not even 200, 300, 400k will get you there

Income is a big piece of the puzzle. But the equation isn’t income growth, it’s savings rate. Every extra % you save isn’t just extra money in your pocket, it’s less money you need to live on.

Most of the small towns are 75% trailer parks.

>> No.53812138

my hometown unironically has some very large victorian homes from like the 1800s. unfortunately most of them are beat to shit from neglect and abuse and consequently sell for like $125k, while the 1500-2000 square foot well-maintained ranch homes sell for $200-250k. and then there a ton of shitty rinky dink 1200 square foot mid-century homes for $100-150k that are poorly maintained, and some nasty ratfuck trailers on private property.

"more urban" living is overpriced but it's also way easier to make money and overcome that cost of living. if i had stayed in my rural hometown i'd be stuck on $50-60k a year with a $1500-1600/month bill for a house. instead i moved more urban and i hit $100k/year in 4 years with moderate effort, and my house bill (when i buy) should be around $2300/month. i'm saving a lot more money despite the cost of living increase, and my work is a lot more interesting and flexible than the alternative.
