    Same lol... today I've been gym and post office.

    When i'm out I carry a notebook with me too so I can always make note of any ideas I think of!

    I also have issues with authority, I clash with people quite easily - so if I disagree I get very difficult lol.

    I've quit college 2 days ago and I'm coming home today. Before dropping out of college I thought a lot about it before making that decision. I'm not dropping out 'unprepared' because before I drop out,last year I invested in Offline business. I've built an apartment and 2 small boats which I will be renting out every Summer. I've bought it from my IM money so I have a 'secure line' if my IM job gets fucked up.

    Next year I will be going at at different College to try out that. I know that college won't help me a lot in IM business but I will still go on it so I can make some connections,meet new people,party and learn some new stuff which I didn't know before. Life's about learning and experiencing new stuff and there's no better place than College because you're surrounded with people similar like yourself.

    700 Chaturbate revshare registrations? Now what happens if Chaturbate gets a lot of complaints about your whitelabel or link being abused because you upload copyrighted content or content that doesn't belong to you? Yeah, you know whats gonna happen then... they will ban your ass and your revshare registrations won't mean anything anymore. Don't get me wrong, buddy but before you decided to drop out of college you should've atleast had 2 income streams, not just 1..

    College degree? Meh, whatever. The point is that you wasted a lot of money that I bet wasn't yours. That makes you an ungrateful spoiled child. Your mother cries for the sacrifices your family apparently wasted on you. Nice job junior. Can't IM in college? Don't like the major? Pfffft. Grow up.

    If it was your money/loan then whatever. Good luck and share your journey to success in your new found freedom!! :)

    Dude, UNLESS you want to be a doctor or a lawyer or something like that then FUCK college. If you don't want to be one of those professions then the only thing it's good for is socializing/hooking up with girls and getting into big ass debt.

    People who tell you otherwise probably went to college themselves and don't want to admit they wasted 3-4 years of their life and didn't get much ahead or ahead at all than if they built up 3-4 years of experience.

    I dropped out after 3 months because I thought the whole learning thing just sucked (doesn't mean I'm not open to learning new things AT ALL, in fact I have learnt, tried and studied a TON more than my one dimensional friends that never thought out the box and just followed the system like sheep because they didn't have any other idea what to do/trust they could do thing another way) and I believed I could use my personality, charisma and build on my experience to open doors.

    I was the first one to go to university in my family ever (immigrant family mindset) so they were gutted when I left. Few months later I took on a commission only sales job and was making £1k a week. F*ck you mum and dad...

    From there I built myself up and up and eventually became a manager of a very well known and prestigious company (I joined them when they were a start-up) but even before then I was only ever building myself up in companies and leaving after like 1-2 years tops. So I didn't even stay there mega long term.

    ANYONE that makes you feel like you wont succeed if you leave, quit or take a gamble on other things indeed does have some point. But it doesn't mean they're right either.

    I'm not bitter, just don't agree how ALL people should be pigeon holed into taking the same path in life, in the same way and then ostracized for doing different.

    To concluded, IMO and experience if you go to uni and you don't want to be a doctor/lawyer etc. you're wasting your fucking time (unless you want to fuck hot college sluts easier). Let alone we have the internet now and don't need anyone to put us on.

    Homie, the education system has been largely UNCHANGED for 100's of years. Actually IIRC the style of learning - sitting in rows, putting your hands up, was to produce factory workers so go figure. The system hasn't changed but hell, society and technology sure fucking have.

    Don't feel guilty for your decisions.

    I'm a college drop out too, and it wasn't the best decision I made, but I've found IM because of that, and now I'm much more succesful than most of my graduated ex classmates. So, if IM is your dream, go for it! :)

    Not all countries have the same college systems. Maybe he had free education?

    It's so stupid that people have the attitude "doesn't matter if you hate the subject are learning - just suck it up". For what? So you would have a backup in a field you hate? So if IM doesn't work out you could do a job you hate for the rest of your life? You only have one life to live - the greatest gift you have is the freedom to choose what you do with your life. What is the point of living and spending 8h/day doing something you hate?

    In the UK, you have a much better chance of getting a better paid job with ANY degree.

    It doesn't matter what degree you get, a lot of fields will accept it. It is another form of freedom.

    Now the first thing you need to do, if you haven't already is to get a job. With money from a job, you can start paying bills, help your parents if you live with them. Also, if you like IM then start investing into it.

    For me, dropping out of college makes only sense when you are already successful with IM. Just because college aint shit these days, it doesn't mean it doesn't matter at all. If you fail doing IM (considering that you dropped out of college so easily) at least you would have something to show to get a better paying job when the chance happens. Meanwhile you can flip burgers for money if you don't get a higher paying job.

    I'm from the UK and every position i applied for, even my management role in which I oversaw 50+ employees said they required a 'degree from a good university'. I don't have one and so it meant shit and never meant shit for the other 3-4 jobs I got that also stipulated such a 'requirement' was needed.

    It's about selling yourself. The caveat is you need demonstrable evidence that you can do the job. Someone who went to university once a fucking week and has no real world experience isn't going to be as a effective as someone who didn't but got the stripes and experience under the belt, period.

    Unless, once again, you were trying to be a lawyer or what have you.

    People need to realise that ALL requirements are flexible AND prices too. Dare to push them. Most don't.

    You should have broken it to your mother gently, with the old Good and Bad news method.

    "Mum, I have good and bad news. The bad news is I left college a year ago to become a rent boy ..." Give her 10 secs to react then "The good news is I have given up male prostitution to become an Internet Marketer" Then watch the relief and happiness spread over her face.

    Can you live at home while you figure things out, or are you already doing that?

    Some positions won't even consider people without degrees, so it clearly means something. But yes, relevant experience over qualifications all day.

    Your experience of 3-4 jobs doesn't cover every position, in every industry. Your personal experience may be you don't need a degree, but some do require it.

    But lets be clear, i'm not talking some bottom of the barrel sales/marketing/assistant type stuff - i'm talking positions where people need to display they have a brain. Experience and qualifications are necessary.

    Also, an oxbridge degree will put you in a better position than 90% of people working when you finish your degree, then in 10 years after your degree, on average you'll earn roughly 40% above average.(got source if you need it).

    Not everyone is this lazy student who goes in once a week either lol.

    yeah college is overrated. we don't live in the 60's or 70's anymore. If you want to make money, be an entrepreneur. dropped out of college too 4 years ago. had a bumpy ride but got it together now. to hell with college!
