    Hi everyone! I'm sure your time is precious so here's a summary of my post:

    - I'm a med student who wants more out of life; a very successful acquaintance recommended this forum to me
    - Recently I developed enough efficiency and discipline to attempt projects outside of medical school
    - Currently teaching myself Ruby (programming language) and reading books on making money
    - Hoping this forum will help me learn how to support myself (vs. mooching off of my parents)
    - Post or send me a message if you have any advice, need any advice, or just want to chat!

    Here's the longer version if you'd like more details.

    I recently started medical school. It's been a blast and I feel like the luckiest guy for getting in, but I can't help but feel guilty. A lot of my life revolves around memorizing biological minutiae only to forget it a week later, all while living off of my parents money. Needless to say, I want to find some way to pull my own weight.

    At first I was just getting used to medical school but now that I'm more used to the rigor I want to start working on other parts of my life (like finances). One of the most successful guys who graduated from my college told me he got his start at this forum, and now I see him traveling the world, staying in expensive hotels, driving nice cars, etc.

    Obviously I don't expect that kind of success right off the bat. I'd just like enough money to start contributing to my rent and groceries. At the moment, I've been reading a lot of books (along the lines of the 4-hour workweek or the 100$ startup) and teaching myself how to program in Ruby on Codeacademy. Despite this, I don't have much actual experience in internet marketing (but hopefully I'll change that soon).

    Send me a message if you have/need book recommendations, ways to could make money online, or even if you just want to chat about getting the most out of life.

    I'm looking forward to being a part of this forum and meeting everyone :)

    Maybe you could find a way of combining what your learning at medical school and doing online? I started in the same way i learnt HTML, CSS and JAVA through Code academy wish you the best of luck.

    PM me if you are willing to study hard on your medical education and I will help you with everything else. I have a lot of medical experience form things that have actually happened to me. Forget learning how to program spend your time on medicine. I have lots of ways to help you achieve financial independence with an authority medical website.

    As long as you find something you enjoy enough to stick with it, you'll arrive at success.
