>>1006985 Get a car loan from a credit union Once you find out how much you can be approved for find out what you can get for that. Either buy from a private party or go to a dealership and find the car you want. If you go to a dealership and you start talking price tell them you're approved for x amount (price you're willing to pay whether it's the full loan amount or not). They'll most likely try to get you to apply for one of their shitty loans but don't do it. If they try to say they don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>1006980 Sounds rough. You might try to go freelance. Do you live with your parents? If you can stay at home with them to minimize costs, it can give you time to build a client base.
Seriously, check out craigslist non-stop for work, and have a portfolio ready. Check out thumbtack.com, I've got photo gigs that way, and also check out fiverr.com, I think they allow people to work for them on there, and they get a lot of clients flowing through there.
>average of 5 applicants for each job (let's be generous) >only the best will get it, so that's the top 20% of applicants >each time a new job appears, a new applicant enters the field (steady unemployment) >by this logic on a broad scale, only the best 20% will get a job, while the rest will have to find a less competitive field
>>1006945 They'll tell you how. People discuss it all the time.
But once they know, people don't actually do it. They keep talking about it. Endlessly. They don't cut their expenses, they don't work hard or learn more to advance their careers. They just...keep going, always feeling like they are missing some trick. Like there's a post they can like or a tweet they can retweet and the riches will roll in.

Asking random questions with no thought or direction put into them is going to receive equally terrible answers.
People are either gonna tell you lies about how to get rich, speculate about some way they haven't tried yet, or preach about their own decisions. No one is going to hand you a pathway to money that they haven't already tried themselves. This is only anecdotal or interesting at best, because "riches" are found by making your own brand and path
Great book, I enjoyed it from front cover to back cover, really genuine guy. Gave some very easy to follow examples, great if you're just getting into personal finance, but it's more of a beginner book to get your dick wet, if you're experienced you might want to read something a little more complicated.
Made a channel, building an office for myself right now, also building a powerful office PC, and setting up business bank accounts and whatnot.
^Build I'm putting together from now till April 2016.
Already got most of the things in my office like chair, minifridge/freezer, microwave, etc.
I'm basically almost ready to begin content creation, and I'm planning on doing "Let's Plays" with niche games, and I'll do a lot of tutorials for those niche games, as well as play bigger more... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'll start by contributing via answering your questions at all related to startups or business.
Went to College for roughly 2 years. had a GPA of 3.5 before I dropped and entered an elevator pitch competition run by the Collegiate Entrepreneur's Association (CEO) club. Long story short I qualified for nationals in Orlando. Had some investor interest but ended up dropping out. After about of semester of doing my own thing I got an internship at a startup which is now my full-time job. I'm... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Nope, my investments are in my own ventures. I did by the inteligent investor today for some personal reading for when I'm ready to test the market. Although I'm tempted to just throw my money in some index funds, but that is trading in this is about startups / business ventures
Let's say you are someone who just turned 21, with a GED and no college education, no money, and whose only work experience was at a McDonalds for one year, and at a group home for two. You are planning on moving to a different state in 3-6 months with one other person, you know absolutely nobody there, and with roughly 2000-5000 dollars in savings, depending on how long you wait until moving. How would you get a job with enough pay to actually pay rent on a decent apartment? What would you do to get qualifications for good, above minimum wage jobs? Where would you look...

I was like you anon in 2005. 18 yo and only armed with a GED, I joined the Army, got promoted fast as fuck..."made E7 in 7" and I'm making about 75k a year. Doesn't sound like much, but I pay very little federal taxes and no state taxes and my healthcare is frreeeee, to me anyway. When I last deployed I rolled in 92k tax free and didn't have to pay for food a single time.
>>1006571 But in Canada our McDonalds memes cost quite a bit more than the US and not too recently went up in price again.
Wouldn't this just lead to unemployment?
Also a lot of much more skilled jobs pay under $15/hr, or around $15/hr. Will their wages get raised to reflect that or would they all just be paid $15/hr? Because I don't think paramedics will work for the same wage as some stoner flipping burgers.
>>1006581 Ok but can you respond to the other problems?
There is quite a few jobs in the US which pay under $15/hr and require a lot more responsibility and skills than flipping burgers. Will their wages be raised to compensate proportionally?
>The BLS reports the median annual salary for EMTs and paramedics was $31,270 in 2013. The best-paid 10 percent in the profession made approximately $54,710, while the lowest-earning 10 percent made approximately $20,420.
