Debt - like 10k? Various credit building notes, mortgages, debt consolidation loan. I was an autist. 780 fico now. I got into debt like everyone i lnow and had to have a metal plate put in my foot in 2010. ...i am the bionic man. Only cost $40k out of pocket and over a year off work... wear your ppe kids.
Assets - lol. You forget where you are? I'd say high debt to income and a shitty hose i lose money on every month. Plus the one i live in if i had to sell. I call it an assett because we have put money into ot and in theory could at least break even. But 0 true assett. Working on it. Made a deal with the wife. Pay off debt. Then go nuts buying wtf ever i want. Once i leverage the first couple of houses and prove income shell probably be more interested in leveraging to the hilt. In her defense im autistic and cant be bothered to give a shit right now. Been a rough few years and we finally got some breathing room. Just gonna cruise for the next year and relax wagecucking and paying shit off.

But unless you riding in a fucking appreciating 32 ford hotrod then prolly not boss.

I still consider it a necessary investment. I think i did good with my 2002 crown vic. Cheap repairs and new bags and compressor for 500 is only major problem in like 4 years. Cost me 2k.

eGremlin

Enough to pay off 120k in car loans over 5 years while putting away $1500 a week, paying car insurance which is exorbitantly high because of my age and the nature of the cars (fast), while also paying for groceries, my dad's mortgage, my grandma's rent, my own health insurance, and then still having money to reinvest at a point where I can remain at this level.

There are many downsides to this life though. I work about 60 hours a week, I only have 2 friends and I see them about once every other month, I'm still a virgin, rarely leave the house for non work related purposes, most people I've ever known have forgotten I exist, haven't had a gf in years, etc.

Hoping the new car will change the Virgin status though. It's not because I've gotten rejected, more of a lack of effort. I spent the best years of my life building this. I don't consider it a waste but a lot had to be sacrificed to be where I'm at today.

CouchChiller

It's 100% legal, you just need a wholesalers license. However, there are many closed communities amongst suppliers and you have to know somebody to get in on the sales. I and half the people I know have been investigated either by private detectives, loss prevention agencies, or the FBI, and no one has ever even been charged because it's all legit.

Year end for '17 I hope to have $20k in checking and paid my debt down to $15.5k

It's not exactly glamorous by Veeky Forums Veeky Forums standards, but I live in appalachia in an area where most people get by with communal living with their parents and surviving off food stamps.

Graduated with a finance degree a bit after the financial crisis. First job was help desk, followed by business/systems analyst on accounting systems for something close to 5 years before making the jump to programming. I basically learned to program by writing lots of small scripts to automate my work and help the business people. I ended up writing a small program to import data into the accounting system at some point and used that to get my first real programming job.

The jump from systems analyst to programmer was pretty big. My analyst job consisted mostly of sql and digging around configuration settings.

Not the guy you asked but if someone goes into pure science, they better research the employment options first and be prepared to go hard and beat their cohort. Is it her first degree? The 'I don't know what I want to do but I like science' route is fraught with danger in my opinion - many people will end up having a crack at a vocational second degree like medicine afterwards. If she ends up trying that but wasn't 'smart enough'/worked hard enough to get into med out of high school, trying to get into postgrad med in Australia is really hard atm.

Hated my customer service job, taught myself fueled by anger at how much I didn't like that job.

Teamtreehouse.com got me from customer service rep to full time front end web developer in ten months. Look into their Web Development track. You can also try pluralsight.com There's a lot to learn though before you really can do anything worth charging for.

Learn, in this order, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, a JavaScript task runner, and Sass to get down the basics, then try building a site or two. Then, you should learn a Content Management System (CMS) like Wordpress, and probably some PHP. You'll also need to learn how to use basic Photoshop as the design comps you get will usually be in that format.

After you've made 5-6 sample sites, Put together a portfolio site and start applying. This industry really only cares about your skills so if you show them you know what you're doing they will hire you.

It's a lot to learn but worth it. You don't really need to be artistically creative, you normally just get the design file from a graphic designer.

When I was ready and had the site in place, I Applied to 60 places in 2 days. Had a bunch of interviews and was hired within a week.

Yes and no. I'm in litigation and am very competitive so time in the courtroom is exciting / gratifying. That said there's a ton of non-exciting and non-gratifying work that goes into preparation in big law litigation.

In sum if you're smart and hardworking and have a bachelor's degree I would recommend law school as an option. The hiring market has picked back up and if you graduate in the top 10% of your class (a big if) you're almost guaranteed a starting salary of 140K+ plus a lock-step increase annually.

Mainly dairy cows, other cattle and swine, a few sheep. Some excess crops gets sold. Couple of excavators and other machinery to take jobs with or hire out at times. Some woods, so a bit of forestry work in the winters, hunting lease. I qualify for some subsidies, last year I think it was 55k, and ending up antagonized in the national newspapers here in a list titled "this years winners".
There's 6 houses on the property, got tenants in 3 of them currently so I end up doing a bit the same as you, haven't kept much track on it but in my case I suspect it's not a very profitable venture, just a measure of damage control kek. Do you have any interesting stories to share? I've been pretty lucky with all my tenants, except the first couple I had, somehow ended up as a messager between them when they split up, it was probably the most awkward experience I've ever had.
Those niched farms that sell their own produce can do really well, but as you say, it's indeed a huge initial investment, lots of labor and a risky market, even worse if one carries huge loans and many does indeed go bankrupt trying this so you're probably infinitely better off doing what you're currently doing, but I can see the idyllic sort of appeal.

So what do you generally do day to day? How stressful is it?

SomethingNew
SomethingNew

Screw around in Tableau, write sql queries, do basic web dev, sit in meetings and conference calls. Most computer smart teenagers could do this most likely.
Was stressful before I had savings and started figuring out office politics. Now i have living expenses for a year. Idgaf what happens, if I get laid off I'll just do interview prep and get a job that pays more. Which means i can escalate whenever if someone tries to punk me. Long-term this position would degrade my skills and harm my career, but I mostly chose this position because it's very low-stress and flexible (work from home multiple days a week, have visited friends out of state for a week and just worked remote during the day, etc)

Fuck your living the life man, I would kill to get that position. All these fags in uni are trying to get jobs at the big 4, I just want a cushy job like that. How hard was it to get there? Did you have to intern and stuff beforehand?

kizzmybutt
kizzmybutt

Not hard to get, interned at a big company (with same team) and got brought on after. It's a gamble because I could get reorged into a much dicier position but you can't control that I guess. Software seems to have a lot of this kind of stuff if you avoid the striver/achiever tack where you work 50+hrs/week to make big money at Amazon Google etc. and low-tier companies that work you into the ground. Once you have some years of experience in the right niche lots of people just do remote consulting. The guys at hacker news are probably a better source of info for this than Veeky Forums

I've been thinking about going back to school and finishing up. I was an accounting major, but I dropped out because I couldn't get into it.

I thought about getting into HR. I know this whole place shits on HR people, but I feel like its a whole lot better than working in a restaurant, right? Also I don't think I could go back to accounting. The only reason why I picked it in the first place was because it seemed like a safe job.

So is HR worth it?
I've also seen a few entry lvl position opening up in my area, so I might look into that as well.

Just an fyi, you can start your own cultural/secular Jewish center as a business investment that'll help you expand.

And before someone says "this is who you're talking to on biz" I'll say that I don't ever post and don't plan to keep posting. Just a lurker trying to learn.

I stayed in-state for college and got free tuition, but it took me 6 months after graduation to find a decent job. You could argue that those 6 months cost me $40k, so who knows, you might be better off

i had a job that made me hate life but made money. being an immature brat i quit the job without an alternative, burned my savings on renting, then cut the lease early anyway and moved home
that is the story so far

right on the money. funny is that it was easier for me to get an ee with a cpe major than vice versa

you know you should be berated for that shit right? Just develop business software, it's so much easier.

Locking yourself in your room hoping for that 0.00001% chance to hit the jackpot won't do you any good.

That requires knowing what kind of business software would be in demand. I don't know how to find out.

You also need to know how to make vidya and which types are in demand.

If you know about vidya, then you can also learn about corporate software. Go google/wikipedia, talk to ppl, network, etc. Yes you need people skills in addition to technical/programming skills, but you will need people skills anyway.

Are you a compsci student? Then start looking at internships or research possibilities. Go to talks, befriend ppl, look for a job, etc.

Vidya is EXTREMELY comptetitive.

Check out one of the roboadvisers like Betterment or Wealthfront. At my firm, they are considered managed accounts and exempt from most PA restrictions.

I work for a boutique that is part of a very large bank (middle market - bulge bracket arguably), but my office is very separate from the bank. We are not popular in our industry from being part of our parent bank if that makes sense.

Personally, I have never seen someone go from consulting to IB, maybe if you're in one of the huge consulting firms (Bain, BCG, etc.) it may be possible, but very unlikely.

Usually analysts get hired right out of undergrad, with associates either being promoted from analysts or hired from business school (MBA).

I was thinking about a Merrill Edge managed account but I'm not entirely sold on it yet.

Do they hire CPA's?

We have a few CPA's in the front office, but they do not do accounting work - they do M&A work. The bank obviously has an army of CPA's somewhere in the building doing actual accounting work for the bank.

I don't care about doing accounting tbqh.
Currently working towards the UK equivalent to CPA (ACA).
Much rather get into finance because the automation risk is a lot lower, it's prestigious and pays better.

i dont know if id say lucrative...i dont make as much as corporate but in my opinion i have a much higher quality of life. I usually meet my clients in my favorite coffee shop and do their consultation over crepes and cold presses, then go across the street for a beer afterward and go back to my (tiny) rented office. I'm never hungry though and I have more than enough money to do whatever I want with all my free time ;)
don't be such a morlalistic fuck, I do my share of reduced and probono work, im not going to work for free 24.7 your retard, i would go broke and starve
