Week #1/2 – Earning Money

Introduction: Have you thought about what type of career you would like to embark on?  College or no college? Start a business? Become an entrepreneur? Cook in a restaurant or cut grass?  The choices we make in life dictate what type of lifestyle you will lead. Planning for a future, having goals, and working towards them will help you achieve success.  However, before embarking on a career, shouldn’t you learn a little more which jobs may or may not be available in the next 10 to 15 years? How much do the jobs pay? Are the jobs in demand?
