Just a youngster looking for advice from those a bit older,wiser and most importantly wealthier than me.
Looking to decide on a future, having trouble getting advice from others around my, mainly because of repeated catch-phrases such as "whatever makes you happy" and "there's no wrong decisions when it comes to your future".Hodgepodge!!
So the options are as follows.
1.Stay a personal trainer and look to expand my local business, whilst trying to scope bargains in real estate/stocks.
+'s Takes little effort and its what im doing right now.
+'s very cheap to live in my current area.
-'s small town population and low socio-economic status means very little base for a large business in PTing.
2.Stay a personal trainer and move to a larger city where there is a far larger user base, and generally get paid double my current hourly rate.(One personal trainer gets 400 per hour(not bad work if you can get it))
+'s I have experience personal training and am far better qualified and educated then most Pt's out there, especially those who have done an online course.Thus should be able to find some work fairly quickly.
+'s Bigger city=more opportunities when it comes to real estate.
-'s hate large cities, freakin grid-lock traffic urggh.
-'s current pt market in the bigger cities is over saturated.
-'s Cost of living in most large cities is extremely high.
3.Join the airfield defense guard.Part of the Australian air force.
+ good pay at the start and increases quickly.
+ do not have to rely on others for cash income, job security likely very high.
+ get paid to be fit, which I enjoy.
+Good benefits and tax benefits.
+get to see the world....or at least some middle eastern desert filled with people trying to kill me.Maybe this isn't a plus....
+ possible increase in rank to officer status, good pay even better benefits.
+safer then most ground troops, may just sit back in Australia wandering around an airfield watching the f-14's fly in and out.
-Fly all over the world, never have time to check on real estate/stocks.
-Could be killed, many times over.
-Hated by most people my age.Don't think I mind really.
4.Join army as a PT.Most of the benefits above.
+Less pay, more safety.
+I have experience in this field.
+Have a few mates on the armed forces.
- Unlikely to see the world.
5.Study at TAFE/UNI and become Become a real estate agent.
+Get great knowledge on real estate pricing and valuing.
+get access to great deals before the public.
+am interested in real estate.
+Very high job security (people will always need somewhere to live right?)
+Reasonably high pay rates depending on performance.
-Could end up being terrible at selling houses.
-Takes time at UNI/TAFE until I receive any financial return.
-Housing market could slump, thus lack of income.
-Bit of a 9-5 job.You get what I mean.
6.Study at TAFE/UNI to become a financial advisor.
+get great know of the stock market and other investments.
+Can use that knowledge for profit.
+Relatively good pay.
-Performance based, I might suck.
-Commision based, paid to take risks with people mullah.
-Have to study at TAFE/UNI, a while before I see any returns in profit.
-With the stock market and investing, who knows what could happen, QE3 anyone?
Lastly 7.Start a web-based company designed to bring all the "ladies of the night" around Australia onto one website.
A site where users can search for women in their area, providing "services".Searches can be done by height,body type, hair colour, eye colour, ethnicity, location and services rendered.
Clients pay on site by credit/debit card/bank deposit/pay pal before making a booking.
I take a 15-20% cut on profits.
+I don't think this has been done before, its just crazy enough to work .
+A large userbase of working girls out there, all working by themselves relying on ads in newspaper classifieds to get them by.
+Relatively cheap idea that could have massive returns.
+People are more likely to book online then risk the shame of being seen walking into a brothel.
-Absolutely out-there, I've got no experience and no idea how to get this going.
-May have already been done.
-No-one is going to believe me until I get the website set up.
-May be laws and regulations against this activity.
Believe it or not I'm entirely serious on that last one.
So thought/advice anyone?
