it's harder without college, but it's possible to be all right.

especially if you have a hustle.

I'm gonna get a degree and teach. You know who's gonna make more money than me?

Plumbers.
Carpenters.
Locksmiths.
Construction workers.
Cabinet makers.

etc etc.

People who have physical skills/hustles^^^ don't need college.

But in this digital/lazy age, fewer and fewer people have those trades/skills so those of us who take the college path will be often paying the tile layers, house painters, plumbers and locksmiths of the world.


-T

this is quiet a misconception that all people with physical trades are making loads of money... for instant people like painters, tilers, locksmiths provide a decent service but they're line of work is limited, so the money coming in is usually round a certain figure..

Its the physical trades where you need to have gone to college that are the real big money jobs (e.g. plumbers, carpenters, electriains) because thats where the jobs are more varied and you are priced on different services (best example for instance was  today.. i had two run two pipes from a flat into a lobby hallway, took me like 40mins and worked out around 55 / 110usd's... But yesterday i did exactly the same apart from  running the pipes from the lobby into a riser (water) cupboard, and because water was involved in the job i got 68 / 136usd's and it only took me 20mins extra)

basically if your willing to work hard and do the long hours (my usual day is around 12/13 hrs) then the rewards are very pleasing.. only downside is if i dont work then i dont get paid and same for holidays too

Fuck man...I'm in my last year of high school, and got no fucking clue what to do after i'm done this year :-\

i'd love to become a sports agent on the real...i think i can do it, but 2 be honest, i don't even know what path u have 2 take 2 become one :D

i'd love to go into trades, but honestly i'm in a fucked position LOL...i love to write and shit, but i ain't all that interested in going 2 college/uni...but i would most likely suck at trades, because i'm not hands on like that :-\

So you get no help from your family? That's effed up. Are you an outcast to them? I mean seriously I just can't believe that. I understand them not spoiling you into a lazy good-for-nothing type of nigga, but c'mon I'm sure they got a helping hand and some green for ya.

Sure, I get help, when I really need it...But like you said, I haven't been spoiled into the good-for-nothing rich kid type. My direct family isn't even multimillionaires like that, just comfortably wealthy. It's not like I don't work for what I have, like some people make it seem. Nothing was handed to me...PeACe

College? All I know is to make money and live...

Not everybody can inherit a business homie.


You inherited a business?

hell naw, I was alluding to your parents putting you up on game.  Is that not the case?


No...who the hell told you that?

Well if your parents / family are in to real estate investing, you can't sit here and tell me they didn't put you up on game and give you money to help get you started.  I'm not trippin off that at all, I'm just saying that not everybody is in that position.

Ummm, I learned the business through observing my family, but they didn't give me anything out of the ordinary. ANYONE can learn it. The most money my parents gave me at once was like 200 bux for my birthday or something. You act like I'm all special...LOL.

that's why I hate Kanye. Glorifying dropping out of college and shit.

Once more I'm not saying you can't succeed without college cause you certainly can but it's like dude...there's enough young people who are teetering on that 'should i finish college or not' edge and Kanye's like "Yeah, fuck that shit." and says stupid shit like "Bush doesn't care about black people" when he could have said something BRILLIANT like "Bush doesn't care about POOR people."

tradesmen here in australia are probably the most highly paid peeople in the country, they're making a fuckload of money simply because we've had a housing boom happening all over the country here for the last 6-7 years, and it shows no hope of slowing down anytime soon. kids are dropping out of highschool in year 10, making like $60-70k/year with no highschool diploma or anything

He's basically just saying you don't need college to be succesful, and he's right...The system is a joke (not saying it can't help you), but many people do fall victim to it and get brainwashed into believing that going with the system is the only way in this life, and end up just wasting a nice chunk of their youth...PeACe

So what kind of investing do you do?  Speculative dirt purchases, improved land, residential / commercial....what?  Or do you just broker deals?  If you are buying and selling real estate there's no way in hell you came up with the equity yourself.  Even if you got 100% no doc loans (which were common over the last few years, not now though) you would have had to have your parents or someone else as a co-signer guarantor.

Right now, I've been saving up money from the job I currently have...I haven't bought any land or had any homes built yet, but it's a lot more simple than you make it out to be in your head. Like I said, I learned the business from my family, of course my parents are gunna tell me what's up and do whatever. But as of now, I'm still deciding on which area specifically I'm gunna pursue in the field. I have time. It's the same concept with purchasing a shitty car, doing some work on it, and re-selling it, which I've done for years with my cousins... it's just on a much larger scale...PeACe
