@TtvJokester 1. Great question. Here's what I would do today if I were 18.
@TtvJokester 2. I would finish college as quickly as possible and in the most economical way possible. This means community college and then transfer to a top tier school. I'd study computer science, or economics + learn to code on the side. Work every summer and try to graduate debt free.
@TtvJokester 3. Open a ROTH IRA as soon as possible and contribute $6,000 to it every year in something like $ARKK or $TSLA for at least 6 years. Contribute as much as you can to a ROTH IRA. By age 59 1/2, this could be worth millions, and it's 100% tax free.
@TtvJokester 4. Read as much as you can, and learn as many skills as you can. In the business world, there are only two real skills: building things and selling things. Work your way up to being able to build complex software programs. Learn how to use persuasion effectively in all forms.
@TtvJokester 5. Learn basic cooking, eat right, and take care of your body. Eat blueberries before exams to increase cognitive function. Understand gut health so you can stay focused with high energy: read the book "Fiber Fueled". Don't waste time trying to get jacked. Pushups. Pullups. Run.
@TtvJokester 6. Be very selective with your friends. Make sure you surround yourself with people that are successful, smart, creative, and positive. They should have similar goals to you. Cut off relationships with toxic people, many of whom you probably went to high school with.
