    @Will Munny lived his dream of fight an MMA fight. got his ass beat but he did it.and he is ok with being himself and going hunting and fishing. seems simple....be hes ok being him.

    Lmaaaooo I never lost. And it wasn't a dream to fight (I fought 3 times), it was just a step to becoming a better human being.

    And I'm not a simpleton, but yea I'm ok with being seen as a simpleton that just likes to hunt and fish.
    Times are tough, but they ain't got nothin' on me.

    I'm motivated by what I'm subconsciously referring to as my "better tomorrow." My better tomorrow is no payments aka debt free. My better tomorrow is making sure (from economical standpoint)my young child is well taken care of. My better tomorrow is treating myself to a good lunch or golfing because I worked my ass off for it and paid the price CARAJO (no social life, etc)

    I knew I was making progress in my snowball because I paid off $7,500 in 5.5 months. There were times where I had only an otter pop to eat all day. What I said in my previous post, is what keeping my flame blue

    my new motivation is to get my car paid off as soon as possible because when I get it paid off as soon as possible, and with my debts being significantly lowered, I can for a paycheck combine all my payments and have the second one be the one where I give my new family ( :) ) one heckuva Christmas CARAJO

    Thats not what you want to do.

    You want to set up a trust fund so they get a monthly payment. You can set up a trust fund so your mother gets, say, $10,000 a month for the rest of her life. According to my math, $10,000 per month for 20 years is $2.4 million. That's better than giving her $2.4 million up front because she can blow it all in a matter of days and then she'll want more and you'd feel obligated to give it to her.

    So if you win, don't "give" anybody anything. Set up a trust fund.

    Now that I think about it, I could set up a trust fund for my brother. I'd give him $10,000 a month. He's about 45 now so $10,000 per month for 40 years is only $4.8 million. That makes more sense than giving him the money in one lump sum.

    I used the money from my severance.
    I was already very familiar with the business and suppliers so I cut a deal with them and all I needed then was travel money.

    I said at an early age of 20 I never wanted 2 bring kids un2 " This" world and that's one of the best decisions I've made as an adult. Hellishness frightens me to no end what goes on so I adopted this. Saw a Quincy Jones Interview when I used 2 rap and was getting started in corporate. Q said Malcolm X ( when they would hang out) was an " Internally Motivated" Man. Didn't wait for anyone or anything 2 get it cracking or make it happen. I put it on my resemue 2 as one of my strong points. Self motivation is a leader trait. Big up 2 da cats that don't put $ on a pedestal. This society will be what it is and always has been. Get yours/ have fun/ leave sum'n 4 ya lil 1's. Ain't hard @ all.

    I switched my focus to pay off my student loan as fast as possible. I got $7,774.51 left in my student loan. What's crazy is that I could potentially pay it all off by my dad's birthday. Then I can give my son ( :3 ) a Christmas.

    Thats why I made a focus groups thread.. these things helped me out so much in terms of paying debt and buying personal items. If I can get into the focus group next week, I will be able to remain on course to pay off my student loans on 6/22/17, with some moneys left over to buy my son stuff. This is a grind, but I cannot wait to be debt free and take my lady and son on a vacation. People don't understand how serious the "becoming debt free" game is CARAJO. You need a plan to go ham on your debts.

    Swiss German. if you speak Swiss German and English, you good. but even high German is widely excepted.

    but yes, it would be very hard to find a job outside of the pharma industry or Nestle.

    Zurich is the shit. It's like a college town. you cont compare it to other places in Swiss. in Geneva you need money. In Basel, it's a small town with not much to do but masquerades as a big international city.

    once you get a gig here....you will make a shit load of money, but things cost alot. si get ready to make like over $100k but a burger costing 11 ch.
