Re: 2nd Job
I had three to get myself out of debt 20 years ago. Sucked. Was worth it.
Ironically, of all the jobs I had over the years, working as a dishwasher in a large deli when I was 17 is the one I liked the most.
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
This community was started in 2002 as an alternative to a then fee only Motley Fool. The focus of the discussions is on topics related to early retirement and financial independence. The community is moderated to ensure a pleasant experience for our members.
