this is in response to people on here who say things like >the point of money is to spend it >why save up all this money to be old and not use it when you still can and so on can't really enjoy life when you wear a mask 40 hours a week
>>1053754 Unless you look into ERE and learn how to save money, you will never be able to have enough money while also working an easy job, allowing you little stress and lots of money per month that you are saving.
The middle class is mostly tradesmen or white-collar workers who make something like $45K-$100K and have no idea how to use money wisely. Doctors are awfully guilty of this. Make friends with any doctor, and you'll realize that they haven't a clue how to manage their money and are actually in debt,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
As much as you may think the industry is changing, it's really not. Of course there are companies in silicon valley filled to the brim with young minds, but the majority of companies have experienced, proven programmers.
C, C++, Assembly, Java, Python, Matlab, PHP, and Ruby have all been around for more than 20 years. Programming really isn't that hard. I got hired as a software intern last summer after taking a single PHP code academy class for free. I learned more on the job than... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I left my stable job in December of last year because my employer simply did not respect the fact that I consistently logged more man hours, completed more projects, and personally HAD to follow up with every client when everyone else on the payroll just goofed and made substantially more money. I was even more qualified. So I spent the holidays with my family to replace the pain of being taken advantage of.
I change career paths temporarily in order to better align with my educational goals. I post my resume online (with the exception of certain private information) and within 12 hours I had 8 potential new employers, all with amazing opportunities for my growth.
Then I had a "friend", an older, established business-man type who needs my talents. We set up the terms and groundwork.
I've worked for him about three weeks now. The pay would be slight for the first week until we got the website going because we have 2000 clients just waiting. That should have been my warning. The fact that any business oriented entrepreneur would keep 2000 PEOPLE waiting.
I HAVE DONE ALL THAT I CAN
You don't employ someone, especially a friend, to help you out, and then TOTALLY waste their fucking time.
I've given this S.O.B. 3 weeks bc I had faith he would apply himself for 3 consistent hours and then we both profit for many moons.
Compared to being payed hourly, I have made less than minimum wage. That's how much work I've put into this. 10/12 hour days every day. I'm not being supplied the tools we NEED. Now I'm fucking behind in my personal, debts and missed once in a lifetime opportunities. I'm just fucking lost. Why bother trying when my skills, professionalism, and obsessive hunger for success is only taken for granted by irresponsible grown toddlers who simply expect the world to pay them to suck their cock.
I work damn hard to get out of poverty only to be shit on by damn near every employer I've found in the past year. Fuck it! Bankruptcy -> Welfare -> Profit!
No, I don't. If you had to make 6 hours of apology calls because your boss won't take the time from his breakfast whiskey/coke to ask his webmaster for fucking login info, you'd probably be just the same you shit stain 3 piece. =]
I just got a construction job at a water treatment plant for $23/h. I'm 20 years old and planned on starting college for accounting in August. Should I just milk this job as long as possible and go to school later or should i just save up over the next 7-8 mints and go to school?
Entry level accountants already make the same amount you're already making. So whichever you enjoy more I suppose. You're doing light years better than me man. I'm 20 as well working a shit job at 10/hr, and only have 17k saved up.
Biz. I feel like complete shit if I'm not giving my fullest effort at work and staying completely on task. Even thinkin about non work related stuff when driving errands for my business makes me feel shitty. The problem is I simply do not have the energy to do this -it's like working out and not getting that nice burn feeling but being completely filled with lead and sluggish. So my question is, how does one gain the energy to maximize their working potential and efficiency? I'm starting to doubt if I will ever move up in this world if I don't figure this out.
I should have explained more but I didn't want to bore people. There are a lot of factors as to why they're both nearly 60 have worked 30 years a piece and don't have a dime to show for it.
The reason why is because my parents didn't budget together, my mum kept her money and my dad kept his which isn't what my dad wanted but my mother is a very overpowering narcissistic type of person so here are some things that happened... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
