Someone here Posted December 7, 2022 Share Posted December 7, 2022 Does it simply boil down to getting a job and making income via whatever means and then save some money every month to future investment? I don't even have a college degree yet and I won't for at least the next 5 years .does that mean I will be stuck depending on my family to pay my bills and stuff ? I don't like that. I feel like it emasculates me . I'm 26 now and it's time to be a grown ass man and afford for myself . Also..Here’s why most college graduates will NEVER experience financial freedom. So, first I wanna answer the question..why do most people pursue a college degree? Because a degree increases the value of their skills... correct? Yes, absolutely true, it’s been proven over and over again that college graduates are more likely to get paid higher wages than those who don’t have the fancy degree. Well then, if that’s true, why will most college graduates NEVER experience financial freedom? Because there’s zero leverage in HOW these people work! Here’s the math if i take the traditional job-route. My college-acquired skills are more valuable. So I will be able to make more per hour, per day or per month. Yes, true! But, this is how I will be making money if i follow the traditional path that most colleges teach us “Go get a job.” Result? Paycheck = (Skill) x (Time) That means I have to work my ass off for a good half a decade before I can get my shit (money situation) together in life . Isn't there an alternative? I want to invest but I don't even have any income at all . I think that's the most important thing for me at the moment. Is to Start making money via any means possible. So I have few questions: 1- what's the fastest way to achieve financial freedom ? 2-can I start making income from any other source than 9-5 jobs because I don't have time because I have university assignments,exams and projects to work on? 3-lest suppose I started making money independently..it seems to me that they will only serve me in the short term..because I have Tons of bills to pay ..from food to electricity to rent etc...so I won't be saving much to invest in the future. So what's up with that ? How to save money for the long run ? Thanks 😊 Quote Mention Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
