Operation Financial Freedom

More and more College students are waking up and realizing that what they have been taught by going to college, getting good grades does not apply anymore for their financial future. All they will find is Debt and becoming a slave to the elite. I feel it is my moral obligation to show all of you here at the daily paul the spirit and the courage all of these young people contain by saying no the social norm, no to partying and getting drunk, no to getting high, and instead educating and working for themselves.

I worked my ass off for my degrees

In may I will have 3. I went to school primarily on private scholarships, I did not have time to drink and party it up. College students stopped looking for scholarships years ago, and instead go far into debt and forget that they are there to learn things.

That's The Problem!

That is the problem! A lot of students have forgotten that they are here to learn! Granted there are many hard working students who strive to learn. I actually have a friend who graduated from the W.P. Carey School of Business here at Arizona State this last year. He graduated with a 3.9 GPA and a year early. He applied to over 100 positions only to find 1 response with a starting salary of 33,000 a year, not to mention he would be stationed in N.Y. He had the internships he had the grades but what did he find?? This economy is getting worse and worse and undergrads like him are paying the price. That's why i'm setting myself up now while in school learning from people who know how to make and save money. Wish they had a Wealth 101 class LOL

Here, let me help you out


My education should have cost me a total of $50,000. I did it for $10,000 because of scholarships, and since I worked full time (while maintaining a 3.7 GPA... sorry, had to brag for a min lol) I have already paid $6,000 of that back.

So, when I graduate in May with my masters it will not matter if I cannot find a job right away because I have such little debt.

Thank You and glad to see you

Thank You and glad to see you were smart about this! By the way what did you major in if you don't mind me asking? I'm an entrepreneur or like to think I'm one anyways lol. I hope I can find another here at the DP. I'm trying to learn as much as possible!

Get this

I have two Bachelors, one in History and one in English. But my Masters Thesis is about the history of economics in fictitious literature. So, I am talking about Theodore Dreiser and Ayn Rand and the economic worlds they created. Since I did college so cheap I knew it did not matter as much what I got my degrees in, I just wanted to learn. I have a job lined up to teach English in China when I graduate making decent $$$, but it does not really matter how much I make because like I said, I have so little debt.

Try a business degree if you are an entrepreneur at heart. Those degrees do not go unnoticed.
