How can I make money the long and hard way?
A lot of money, not just have 2 million or something like that when I retire.
Did I fuck up by spending 2 years in mechanical engineering?
This is the most retarded thing I have read in 5 whole minutes, and I've been on /biz/ for the past 6.
Give us a background of your skills, connections (family, friends), finances, general location, and aptitude. Without hearing all that, your only possibility is to learn coding and make the next big thing (even then you're fucked because 90% of successful startups come from bored trust fund kids or good coders with connections)
Do you (and OP) mind if post here?
My skills are pretty basic and common, I'm something like a handyman.
I have some connections,like I know some police officers,doctors,and people with a high income
Finances- about 30$ and 0 income
I live in a country located in the middle of europe.
I have pretty good physical skills( I did some hard labour in my teens) and some 'great' communicative skills (worked in a job that i had to interact with ~200 people/day
