When out of college:
Get rid of the TV, XBOX, Game Computer.
Live with other guys to save money.
Work multiple jobs. Save everything from the second job, and half or more from the first.
Get a family friendly dog and take classes to train it.
Get a house or condo that you own
Get an adequate used car.
Save a small portfolio of boring investments.
Lift a few barbells in the morning before work.
Read a book to fall asleep rather than watch videos or tv.
This will get you a wife.
It’s not complicated.
You have to bait the wildlife to catch it.
To most men I say either:
(a) go into the most complicated and technical trade you can possibly get into.
(b) Get into tech if you can
(c) get into business if you can.
(d) as fast as you can gain expertise get into sales, and from sales to entrepreneurship or executive position – if you have the IQ and discipline.
If you stay in a trade plan on your career tanking after 40, and halving your income. If you get into an exec position plan on it tanking after 50 and tanking your income. This means pay off your goddamn house by 40 and you’re golden.
