Here are a few thoughts —>
OK to go to college, OK to get a degree, but building a life around the expectations of recurring future paycheque is NOT OK.
I do this religiously. Our dinner table conv is around biz/idea/innovation/tech, rest politics.
There is an overwhelming chatter for kids to become a tech factory worker. From schools to colleges are teaching them to become one. This is no different from a mining job of the 19th century or an assembly line job of the 20th century.
Can they do better than this is a question I ask myself.
A future choice for them to make as they figure out their own steady state.
Economically the experiment was a failure--I still have $500 worth of inventory sitting in my garage!
Stock picking taught them how emotions and economic gain/loss are intertwined.
