Doubling your salary with Resource Erectors means it’s time to double down on financial planning. 

Our Heavy Industry Candidates Are Rocking It!

You’re a young engineer, and you’re rockin’ it. You’ve landed a sweet gig at a top-notch company. It’s a dream come true, especially when you see that paycheck deposit pumping up the old bank account for the first time. That’s a whole lot of green, but before you start daydreaming about that shiny new sports car, let’s talk about some responsible ways to manage your newfound wealth. And maybe that dream car, too. 

It’s a common story: young guys go to six figures, but the tax man looms. That’s why we’re here. Think of this as your financial blueprint for building a solid future. 

Creating a Budget

  1. Track Expenses: The Money Tree (It’s Not As Easy as It Seems)- You’ve got more money coming in, but that doesn’t mean you can just toss caution to the wind. Take a look at where your cash is going. Tools like Mint or YNAB (You Need A Budget) can help you track your spending habits, and you might be surprised at what you find (Wolfpack Wealth Management). Just like you’re fine-tuning a piece of machinery, you gotta fine-tune those spending habits.
  1. Set Financial Goals: What’s the Plan, Stan? You know you’re headed somewhere, right? Set some financial goals, short-term and long-term. Maybe you’re saving up for that sweet down payment on your first house for retirement, or you’re returning to school for an MBA. It doesn’t matter what it is; just make sure you’ve got a road map ready. That’s what separates those who make it from those who keep on wishin’ (and hoping for a magical money tree). (Best Finance Resources , Kara J Lovett Co.).
  1. Emergency Fund: The Safety Valve – Safety valves are always used as backup plans, right? Even the best-laid plans can go awry. An emergency fund helps weather the storm so you don’t scramble when something unexpected pops up (like that busted transmission or that unfortunate encounter with a rogue wrench). Aim for 3 to 6 months of living expenses. You’ll be glad you did when those unexpected life curveballs come flying your way. (Investopedia).

Managing Investments With a 6-Figure Income

  1. Diversify Your Portfolio: Don’t Put All Your Eggs In One Basket 
  2. It’s wise to spread things out. Diversifying your investments means not putting all your eggs in one basket. Think of it like building a sturdy bridge. You’ve got to have different types of materials to make it solid and reliable. (Investopedia).
  3. Retirement Accounts: The Future Is Now – Retirement is a long way off, but that doesn’t mean you can’t plan for it now. Don’t forget about those 401(k)s and IRAs. These powerful tools can help you build a strong financial future, especially if your company offers a matching program. That’s like getting free money! Think of this as your investment in a future where you can enjoy life after crunching numbers all day. (Investopedia).

Avoiding Lifestyle Inflation: Stay Grounded

  1. Debt Management: Pay Down the High-Interest Guys First: High-interest payments are like leaky pipes that drain your finances (imagine all that hard-earned cash going down the drain!). Prioritize those high-interest debts. Make extra payments when the funds are there. This is where you get serious about those financial goals we discussed earlier. (F3 – Future Females in Finance, Kara J Lovett Co.).

Seeking Professional Advice: Sometimes You Need an Expert

  1. Financial Planner: The Expert You Need : There’s nothing wrong with reaching out for help. A financial planner can guide you, helping you make the right moves to achieve your goals, whether it’s investments, tax planning, or staying on top of your long-term strategy. It’s like a trusty engineer who has spent years mastering their craft. (Best Finance Resources, Kara J Lovett Co.).


We’ve all had those moments where our success leads to some crazy life choices, but don’t worry—with a bit of discipline and a solid plan, you’ll get right into the financial planning driver’s seat.

You have the skills, knowledge, and money to build a successful and fulfilling life. With a little financial savvy and a commitment to smart growth, you’ll be on your way to long-term economic stability and a bright future.
