07 Mar Why Go to College?
I saw this and couldn’t resist posting. College isn’t for everyone and, if it’s not for you, then why spend the money and the next 20+ years paying off loans?
I did go to college. Got a degree in Political Science. What did I do with my degree? I spent a year in insurance then I opened a martial arts school full time. Why? Because I followed my passion instead of buying into the 40-40-40 corporate plan.
Work 40 hours a week (Ha! If only.)
For 40 years of your life (Really? Who can retire after just 40 years?)
Live the rest of your life on 40% of your income (That sounds like fun?)
If you feel stuck in the 40-40-40 nightmare and want to know other options, that’s what I help people do.
While I would never recommend you open a martial arts school, as the failure rate is astronomical, I can show you how to open a your own home-based business for less than $1K. You can enjoy the tax benefits of business write-offs, open business retirement accounts, take control of your future, and create your own schedule.
Is it easy? Well, money doesn’t just fall in your lap. Owning your own business is work, but if you want to take charge of your life, then the work is worth it. And, you can start part-time while you carefully work yourself out of the 40-40-40 rat race.
Is owning your own business for everyone? NO! Some people enjoy the structure and security(?) of the corporate world. Being your own boss is only for people who want to take back control of their lives.
If you are at least 18, you can start your own business. You don’t need a college degree. Oh, heck, in reality, you don’t even need a high school diploma. In fact, most of the world’s millionaires and billionaires don’t have one. One of my mentors is a self-made millionaire and high school dropout.
Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and many others, never finished college. What they have is an overwhelming desire to rule their own worlds, follow their passions, and create their destinies.
