College graduates will tell you one thing if you talk to them. Its not what you think. A college degree is not a master key to a life of luxury like you think. As a matter of fact it just gives you access to the world of cubicles which is corporate America. When you graduate you get a degree and the next thing you get is an entry level position with a fortune 500 company if your lucky enough to start off working in your major. Most people end up switching up and doing something completely different than what they went to school for. Why do you think this is?
Life is for living not struggling and gritting through. You have to remember this in order to have this experience. Less is more not more is more. Consider this error in the college head mentality. Once you get one degree what do they say you need to do to make yourself more competitve? That’s right, get more degrees. Now your supposed to go back to school to get a masters or another level degree for what reason? What is it that you plan to accomplish with it? You’ll still likely end up in the same cubicle on the same floor in the same entry level job. Why well one reason is college degrees don’t create opportunities people do. The sooner you realize this the faster you’ll understand what you should be doing to get successful.
People have heard that the big dog truckers can make $100k in a year. How many college grads have you heard of coming close to that? Trucking is work, college grads are typically looking for a life of luxury and khaki pants where all they have to do is join a conference call and update their ipad. This is not a lot of value to add so there is no huge amount of money left to be paid.
Even technology skilled people are seeing their opportunities shrink due to competition. International developers have taken over computer programing as outsourcing continues to thrive. The top businesses now incorporate outsources as a foudation of their business. How many times have you been redirected to an offshore customer service rep? Well they don’t just answer phones anymore. Nope, they build and code databases, program games, generate traffic for websites, they do it all. And they do it for less. Corporate America cares about profits first people are somewhere on the list after that not sure exactly where. This is why going to college is a mistake for many people. It is no doubt awesomely fun though I cannot overestimate that part of it.
With the right plan and financial education you can make a ton of money trucking. I recently noticed the story about the founder of Lucas oil Forrest Lucas. This man and his wife started their business with one truck they expanded it to 14 and the rest is history. This proves you can make a huge amount of money in trucking add strategy and the ability to make deals and you can make millions.
