Here’s another one of CNN Money’s Millionare stories. Blah blah blah. Guy doesn’t go to college, now he and his wife are making $300,000 in real estate.
It would be nice to earn that kind of money… but I just couldn’t bring myself to be a real estate salesman, or any kind of salesman. No offense to anyone, but sales is based on deceit and manipulation, and in order to succeed at the top, one has to have those qualities in abundance.
Any other suggestions for careers are welcome. It would be nice to make a decent living in this world where everything keeps getting more expensive, and still be able to live a fulfilling life that allows me to keep learning, growing and experiencing all the things I like and keep me alive.
