BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis., Sept. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Have you heard the phrase, “Just wait until you get a taste of the real world”?

Now students can get a clear glimpse into their future salary needs with the Lifestyle Calculator.  This tool can be used to determine how much the “Real World” will cost, and if a student's current career choice will meet that demand. 

The Lifestyle Calculator ( was originally developed by the Optimal Career Planning team as a resource available to parents who read the career planning book “The College Unicorn“.  

“After reviewing the recent stats, we've seen that more students are using the application than parents”, said William Roberts, Author.  William also shared a few testimonials from selected users of the tool: 

“My dream lifestyle will cost me over $100K, and most graduates in my chosen career field make far less than that..”  ”I didn't realize this until using the calculator; it's making me rethink my college plan completely.” – anonymous user

The Lifestyle Calculator is an application used to help pre-college teens who are in the early college or career planning phase.   After answering 10 questions, it estimates the average annual salary that an individual will need to live their dream lifestyle.  This number is a useful guideline to determine if your current career path (What you want to be when you grow up) is on track with the actual costs of your lifestyle choices.

Currently, the website is free for the public to use because it's technically still in development.  You can create an account by visiting the website or login using Facebook.  There are more features that we'll be adding on the development roadmap, which we will announce in the future.  In the mean time, we've received some great feedback from the testers so we're keeping it online for other pre-college students to use.
