Yeah they're very supportive.
Get IT certs
Get in shape
Doing these 2 things should put you on a solid path by the time you're 27.
Bro, I know people that make around the same amount of money that you do that have a girl that they live with out of necessity, a car note, and they have a kid together. At 25, you are a cool position, and it sounds like you have no real obligations.
Take your next tax return, and stack up about $6,000 to get you a $4,500 car. You may not realize it, but not having no car is the number one reason you have difficulty making moves out here. Not only does having a car allow you to be more Mobile in seeking new employment, it opens up a lot of opportunities for side hustles. There are a lot of food delivery apps that you can be driving pretty much anything and make money with them such as Postmates. If you live near a major city, there are also courier companies that you can work for and deliver packages to make it least 500-$600 a week on a full-time schedule.
If you don't have any credit card debts to pay off, you can instantly start investing out of the gate. Most people can't afford to do that, because they already have a lot of outstanding debt that they need to pay off before they can start. Download the stash app that's going to invest your spare change from your debit card purchases, and try to set aside 10% of your income for investments later on. Educate yourself first on that. Plenty of books on Amazon.
Bro, there are cats that wish that they can hit the reset button on their life and being in the same exact position you're in right now, except with a car.
Side hustles (educate yourself on each one first):
-flipping late model impound auction cars
-getting a dealer's license and flipping cars (once you start making more money)
- hitting up garage sales and liquidation sales, to flip the items on Ebay.
- hit up the clearance sections of electronic stores, and after comparing the prices on eBay and Amazon, flip them.
- start a blog about something that you're passionate about, and use YouTube / social media to promote it
- find a trade that you may enjoy, and after saving up some money, go to a trade school and become certified to increase your main source of income
- hit up inexpensive websites, such as udemy.com, to learn some new skills that can benefit you as well
Whatever you do, don't get into any student loan debt, a car note, credit card debt or impregnate no chick. Seriously, any of these things can set you back financially for years.
Good luck Breh
My 2 cents
I've been where your at you just need to focus on what skill you want to work on that will put you in a higher earning capacity. Then figure out the time frame as there will be some sacrifice to get the certification or diploma for that skill. Your still relatively young enough to bounce back... Don't give up
I own my home and have for 7 years. Irregardless to that, I’m just trying to help. You’ve made these exact same threads before.
Go into sales
May I be so bold as to suggest that you own a dictionary too?
I’ve been in your shoes OP and I’m still there in some ways.
There are people that are worse off than you, so look at all the positive things in your life.
Don’t compare your life to others because you’ll start to dwell on Keeping up with the Jones instead of working on your goals.
Let go of the bitterness it’s like wearing a ball and chain.
Its never too late to turn it around.
You're still young as hell.
Get 2 jobs.
Get a planet fitness membership and start doing cardio.
Join the military
That’s literally the only option at this point.
You’ll get paid, get in shape, get to travel...go be all you can be
I wish I had done that looking back on it.
You’ve made a top thread on the Coli and received 45 daps. You’re no loser, sir
fukk all the trade shyt people are talking about... Do you want to be welding at fukking 60 and 70? No... And your salary is maxed far below six figures.
Go to a community college and get a Associates of Science in Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics, or pre-Engineering. Join your local NSBE. Then transfer.
This. Just worry about YOUR bag! Everyone goes thru life @ their own pace. This shyt aint no race. Its a marathon, take ur time. Everyone goes thru the struggle. And also, some ppl u think doing good probably got some shyt they goin thru themselves. Save save save save save save $! Idgaf if its $2, put that shyt up. Its not as bad as u think. Try to get a 2nd job or side hustle. shyt u could save up to get a car and just rideshare depending on where u live.
