Be very careful when you invest your money for a degree because it still does not give you the skills to beat your competition, all it does is like a factory churning out the same products, what skills do you have that is unique which will beat your competition hands down and maximise your income in ways you cannot imagine? I have the formula.
Never sleep until midday, get up at the brink of dawn and maximise your TIME. Staying on a fixed job without being an all rounder is a dead end road, you can be at the lowest rank at the company but do not stay there, you need to learn all the skills at every department to learn enough to maximise your income, and having just 1 skill is never enough. I define High Income skill, as any skilll or business that can help you make $10k a month and if you are not getting it, it means you are on the way, but never get into a dead end job with no potential, you know if you get to that level of income it is only 1 High income skill, you need multiple incomes in your lifetime and learn the skills of trade-off between your TIME and your INCOME RETURNS. Not learning this basic skill means there is no hope for you to be successful, this skill is not taught in Schools of the Highest calibre, if you do not manage your TIME properly you can forget about managing your RESOURCES successfully. The second most important skill is the KNOWLEDGE OF MARKETS. Basic Economic fundamentals is essential and how many schools really teach them? If not, no degree in education, TOTALLY NOTHING YOU LEARN in school is effective. You need to be street smart in order to survive in any markets, that is why our education system is hopeless to get you a proper job, not to mention for a lifetime. When I move into an industry, I will invest my time and resources to learn everything, be an all rounder and know enough of the problems and solutions that exist in that industry, so I will have enough skills to understand everything and modify and change anything I want to maximise my income, that is why nobody can challenge me. Being a Manager all your life is a waste when you are close to retirement, you will be paid the highest salary and will be the first to be booted out of the company unless you are an all rounder, and your company need your expertise to make money, because by that time you can solve problems and provide solutions, even doing everything beyond the skills of a Director, that is why so many companies are now failing, because of cost control they only want to hire the young, if you have reached this level nobody wants to sack you, but very few people in the workforce has reached this level.
