Back in college I was a part of the Advanced Class, but this was not a sizable college system, you understand, this was a absolutely small town. All of the smartest teenagers in college were put into a single Advanced level class. Basically, my best friends were all of the smart teenagers. Both of us got picked on quite a bit by the other, larger teenagers, but the people I was with and I stuck together through it all, then when it came time to graduate, all of my friends went to odd universities, but not me. I stayed here in town to go to trade college & learn Heating & A/C service instead of going to college. They all felt sorry for me, but I felt sorry for them. They bought into the Big Lie that they had to get a college degree to be successful, & I knew my future sit in the Heating & A/C industry. I got my Heating & A/C certification within 2 years, & began an apprenticeship with a local supplier who took myself and others under his wing. By the time my old pals were graduating with big college loan debt, I was using my Heating & A/C profits to put a down payment on a house! I had the same intellect as they did, but I focused on it in a smarter way, & got into the absolutely lucrative growth industry of Heating & A/C repair. I have a more than nine year career system in mind, in which I become a self-emplotted Heating & A/C supplier & start laboring for myself. If everything goes the way I want it to, I will retire with a large nest egg before I am 50 years old.
