Careers?



Im wondering what everyone here does for a living so that they can drive such sick cars. What trades are in high demand and are paying well and are pretty quick to get trained in? If you have any college programs or courses or further education that is worth taking let me know. Its really appreciated.

a 'Career' isn't the only way to money. don't be stupid and buy coffee and smokes everyday, give that shit up. invest in stable investments like real estate.

biggest change i made is i stopped buying stupid shit. i still go out to bars and have a good time - i'm not cheap but i don't waste money on worthless purchases.

don't buy anything on credit unless it's an investment. go to university, get that piece of paper that says you can research and it'll put you ahead in that you can get middle class jobs to fund investments.

read a lot.

I just finished my first year of college for tool and die machining. Also getting my CNC machining diaploma once my tool and die is done, it's only an extra year so why not.
From there, apperantaceship then maybe back to school for mechanical engineering.
Also going to get into custom fab. stuff this year I hope.

Lie cheat and steal seems to be the only way to get ahead in today's world with minimum work. Government let's you get away with it too in Canada, 1/2 the people I know are on wellfare drive bimmer's & Audi's.
All about playing with the set rules, common sense means nothing and their is no control it's just an Illusion LOL.

I'm a Mercedes-Benz technician, I've been in this trade for over 7 years, it was fun for awhile but then everything gets kinda of repetitive, very good money & benefits, the money I don't spend goes into investments & other shit, don't want to be working forever
