Is It Worth It Nowadays To Go To College?
I am wondering if, in the present-day economy, it is still a good idea to trade four years of your life---and a student loan that will follow you to Death---for a BA or BS? With such a minimal education, you will not find it easy to find a really good job.. Have you noticed how many grads are working at minimum-wage jobs?
IMHO, a person would do a whole lot better to become a Premium member here at WA, follow the teachings of Kyle and Carson, work hard and become financially free. Then later, if one still has a burning desire to go to college, one can study in style!
When you come right down to it, where will you find an opportunity to retrain into the most lucrative industry in the world today---for about a buck a day? Internet marketing is also the one industry in which there are no barriers to scaling your earning power as high as you want it to go, except your own lack of a robust work ethic. Or maybe procrastination.
In this industry, nothing can hold you back---unless you let it! It doesn't matter what gender you are, what race, what country in which you live, your degree of disability, your education, your age, and on and on. At WA, the sky is truly the limit.
And that's a darn good thing, because I'm afraid that we are all going to have to take of ourselves and our loved ones from now on. Pensions are going to be going the way of the Dodo Bird. Without our becoming financially free, it will be a very scary world out there...
What say you? Any thoughts?All
