According to the latest data, to be considered part of the top 1% of people in their 20s, you need to have an income of at least $160,000 in 2023, and a median net worth of $577,000. This is a remarkable achievement and means that these individuals have figured out how to live on less than they make, have good deferral skills, and understand the value of time.

The early success of these individuals can be attributed to their ability to make sacrifices, understand the power of discipline, and use their money to work for them. By living on a low living expenses relative to their income and investing in assets that grow over time, these individuals have been able to build their wealth over time.

So, what are the hacks used by these successful individuals? Well, they have figured out ways to live on a lot less than they make, such as house hacking or living in a single room with several roommates. They have also been able to keep their living expenses low, despite having high incomes, by being disciplined and focused on their goals.

In conclusion, being part of the top 1% of people in their 20s is not easy, but it is possible with hard work, discipline, and a clear focus on your goals.

So, don’t be discouraged, and keep pushing forward towards your financial goals.
