Great post! Sure it's "only mowing grass", but if you do it right you can make very large profits. People work for two reasons, because they love what they do, or it's for the money. In a few cases it's both. The above example shows that so many people go to school to get a degree, when all they're really looking to do is make a lot of money. I know so many people who have a degree but work crap jobs. Some from very good schools. In Fedex alone where I was over 1/2 the drivers had degrees. The other half looked at them and said "What the hell are you doing here??". So if it helps you get to YOUR goal, go for the education. Whatever that goal is.
