It's absolutely true that you don't need a college degree, or a college education, to be successful.This is something a lot of folks glossed over and I think it bears repeating.
I made 6 figures once before, in car sales, and was a college dropout at the time. I went back to school, and now I do again.I know a lot of men who have no college, or 2 years of tech school, that make 6 figures or close to it.
I love working with my hands--but I'm glad that I get to wear soft clothes and sit in an office. Decades of working with your hands takes a toll on your body.Welders, luxury auto technicians, shop foremen, general contractors, horse shoers, electricians, etc. All men who make darn good livings working hard with their hands, and don't have college debt.
We all make choices. 80 hours isn't all that much if you enjoy your job. Week in week out it'd be a lot, but working a couple of 80 hour weeks is not that big of a deal.jknight8907 said:I wouldn't consider an 80-hour work week to be successful! It's nice to have time to actually do something other than work and sleep.
Yup. :thumbsup:P.S. Under this scheme I graduated with a 4.0 GPA, at night school while working full time. There was no way was I risking not getting my tuition reimbursement.
