Hey /biz/, I am currently attending business college in Denmark. I am majoring in marketing and IT. Which one of those industries is the most lucrative? (I am talking about real marketing, not some pleb tier facebook office monkey bs).
I work as a UI designer in a small agency. We do lots of client work. Obviously the payment is pretty low while my boss earns twice as much. What he is doing is to meet clients, thinking about marketing strategies and do the sales stuff. Sometimes he is helping out designing UIs. Of course he knows how to talk to clients, how to manage the agency, etc. but it still pisses me off that we as designers do all that shit work (often with overwork) and still we earn half of his money or even less.
I see two options: Either I try... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1081706 I've wanted to be an actor ever since I was 16, but that doesn't pay bills unless you get good roles and you need connections for that. I just turned 18 so I'm going to be realistic and hopefully get a good job from a business major but take acting classes on the side so I can at least do it as a hobby.
Im considering Data Science, been studying R/Python and i come from an economics background, but i cant decide what will be more profitable, pursuing a masters on data science or one in finance/CFA. From what i understand you could very well apply data science to finance, specially machine learning and so on right?
I'm starting my own company in the next 3-4 months. What are the best books to learn the pitfalls and legal hoops I have to jump through. As an example. I have no idea about setting up employees on a payroll and reporting to the gov in regards to who's on my books. How to pay dividends etc.
It's a service company just me and my father to begin with but will be expanding to another worker as the work picks up.
One question that came into my head. Uk law here: Can you work under 16 hours to avoid tax but get paid double to compensate (so I'm... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
/biz/, judging the way the US economy has been going for the last eight years let's dispel this fiction once and for all that Barack Obama doesn't know what he's doing. He knows exactly what he's doing; he's undergoing a systematic effort to change this country and make America more like the rest of the world. When I'm elected president we'll re-embrace what makes America the greatest country in the world and leave our children what they deserve; the greatest nation in the history of the world.
>>1081668 Obama saved the shittiest part of the economy and left the rest to fend for itself. His economic gains will mostly be lost in another downturn because investment toward expanding industries just hasn't materialized. Instead we had state credit creation for insolvent investment wings of banks that would have in any other decade been cut loose. As far as him knowing what he's doing, from the statements he made it does sound like he knows that he's only strengthening the finance sector and works with them... Comment too long.

I apologize, but I'm not much for finance. I tend to spend most of my time on other hobbies. I'm curious what your thoughts are on how one could create a single unified world currency. What could be the measurement used to give value of a single unit of this currency? I know people have used a Starbucks coffee, and a McDonald's hamburger to judge values of currencies worldwide, but what if you had an entirely new currency you could design? What would you base it's value off of? Do you think in the event that a sort of utopia... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What's the downside to 'turnkey' or 'investment' rental properties where you put in the money and they manage the property?
I would assume the decreased return on investment is painful despite the fact that you have to work less and that, like all investments, you can lose your money even if you do the research and invest well.
But, I've seen bad tenants before and they fucking wreck the place, and I don't know how to fix anything more complicated than basic carpentry.

That's about it. With a turnkey property, you are most likely going to pay at the market or above if there is already a tenant in place. PM companies are going to charge you a ton of money for little return. You can hire out a contractor to make any repairs necessary.
My advice is to buy in the same area you live and manage it on your own. Have an attorney/ real estate agent who knows their stuff help you draft up a lease and self manage the property.
Thanks. I've got to do more thinking, because there are a couple properties around here that I'll probably be able to fill with the gas/oil swell, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get quality tenants.
Gas/oil people prefer cheaper places they can fuck up.
>>1081645 Not excuses as much friend, just the harsh realisation that people who make it often only had that opportunity because their parents put in a lot of hard work and then diligent saving/investing to set up their descendants, and that might be the best I'm likely to achieve myself.
my face when people get caught up in assuming that to be 'really well off' you have to have a lot of money.
It's very easy to get to a position where you can care for yourself for the rest of your life without worrying about anything, as soon as you get away from the silly idea that you need to be ridiculously rich to do so.
Obsession with status over securing oneself financially is the downfall of most lower middle class.
