>>1020921 So how would you go about making a long term play for energy? I'm talking 10+ years, oil prices cannot stay this low for much more than a few years because these are below cost prices. I was thinking of watching a few oil companies and getting in at a good price but I'm worried about the amount of debt a lot of them are in and whether they will be able to stick around through a long period of low prices.
I've been unemployed for almost a year now, mostly because I had a nose job done on February and quit my previous job because the recovery process was going to take a while. Since around May though I had begun to search for a job and only managed to land a few interviews, but only made it far on one. Didn't get the job in the end.
I'm a bachellor in business administration with a specialization in international business. Considering it's the beginning of the year and lots of corporations start hiring new people, how can I explain that gap year when... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
it's not rocket science. invest time and energy towards the goal of making money, and you will. you don't have to be particularly smart. just work hard.
part of working hard is figuring that out. spending time on /biz/ can be a good start, and you can always check back looking for specific answers. but all the info you need is out there in the world wide web.

I just started a real estate buisness. I own 2 properties outright as well as my own home. I make about $1000 a month off of the rentals. I make about $3750 a month from my job. I only have 12K in debt and about 75K in equity. I live in a Detroit esque mid sized city in the midwest where you can buy houses for 10-15K. They come with the windows boarded up and I went to school for home inspection so I don't get any that have major problems. I was wondering where could I get financing from? I could pull equity from my rentals but that would diminish my income from them to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1020730 I've been living frugally since I was homeless back in 09. I buy all my clothes/furniture/cars used, grow and can my own food, and I own all my own tools for every project from hanging drywall and framing to installing flooring (I bought all the tools from a tool pawn shop in town). I'm just wondering where I could get a business loan from, my credit is over 700. Or are there any investors or a place to talk to investors?
>>1020649 You can't go wrong with EE. It seems the least saturated and plenty of work out there. EE and CS are pretty much completely different unless you take a path of EE with logic programming or a lot of computer courses.IMO, math is garbage compared to EE or ME. ME is definitely alot more saturated than EE.
I haven't seen the film, but I have worked in finance (primarily asset management) and can say from my experience that yes, people in this field really are that dishonest. The finance industry disproportionately attracts scumbags: people who are greedy, money-loving, selfish, sabotaging, narcissistic.
>>1020640 For background, one of my previous bosses is serving a prison sentence for securities fraud and I think there's enough evidence to indict another one of my previous bosses for the same if the SEC felt inclined. The one who's now in prison stole less than $20 million which is minor compared to Bernie Madoff but major for the families who lost their retirement and education funds.

Its as difficult as anything else. I worked as a freelancer doing conceptual work for a period of time and found it trying. The people you work for will undervalue your time because of the notion that you are an "artist" and shouldn't be paid for your time. However, the better you get and the better you network, the more $$$, as with anything else. See Dave Rapoza - he can crank out high-level pieces quickly and nets a comfortable living.
Which industry is hot for MechE's? Is it true that an MBA gets an engineer a much higher salary in the long run? I was thinking that maybe there were some jobs in the oil industry, but PetE has been tanking lately. Enlighten me /biz/nessmen.
There's a Lockheed Martin around where I am. I was thinking about trying to get an internship there. But, I don't know how the life will be at large companies vs small companies. I hear that it's better to start at large companies to get experience. However, I don't know how much of this is true. I plan to stick with Aero/MechE anyways. I was considering EE, but I hear tons of them nowadays go into software.
My dad owns a small, somewhat failing, business. The business is a financial advisory (not a accountancy firm); Anyway the firm sells insurance and advises on mortgages. I think that the idea of the business is stupid; however, I, being the most intelligent and promising entrepreneur in the family, am going to take over the business from my dad. My issue is, I just do not think it is worth it, because of the relatively low income it is pulling in, or at least my dads salary (£60k annual)

>>1020337 He has hardly worked hard, he looks for opportunities to not have to do work and employ as many people under him as possible. He finds doing hard work for himself as a bore, it is a wonder he is making £60k desu. I appreciate what he does for me, I just feel as if he is a little to naive.
Go to school. You're right, you don't need to carry on his business. I'd hate to see all of his life's work swindled by some entitled teenage son who thinks he has the potential to be something with no credentials other than his "promising entrepreneur" spirit....that he actually got from his father.....who has actually started his own business.
