“If you ever actually do something useful, it will be rendered useless by subsequent layers of management.”
– Johnathan Frost
Minimum wage in the United States is, on average, about $7.25 an hour. If you’re a young college kid you’ll most likely end up having to work a minimum wage job. After taxes, transportation fees, and miscellaneous expenses; you aren’t left with a whole lot.
A cheap hostel in Koh Phangan, Thailand costs $10 to $15 a night. Budgeting in food and alcohol, you could probably get by on less than $50 a day.
Now, ask yourself two questions:
Would you rather enjoy your youth, or waste it on a series of mundane tasks?
If you started an online business and worked hard for several months, do you think it’s possible that you could make at least $50 a day from your website?
Have a great afternoon, I’ll see you tomorrow.
