    Thanks. It's just that my school advertises medicine and dentistry as the only careers you can ever do well in and earn a reasonable amount so I am a bit worried. I just want to do well and have a stable income. Would you suggest taking a language module with my chemistry degree? Or a biochemistry or physics. How does the salary progress?


    Do you go grammer school or something lol? There's loads of jobs out there besides medicine and dentistry that pay well. A language module would be helpful and looks good on a cv and makes you bit more competitive. Tbh you should do what you enjoy.

    Salary for what? :hmmmm2:

    The only careers where if you do well and rise up, you can make a decent amount of dosh are as follows:

    medicine (augmented by private practice, or alternatively moving to a country that pays medics well), dentistry (specialising in maxilo facial surgery or orthodontics), top end law, top end consulting, front office finance, top end of technology, the executive corporate ladder, actuarial profession, real estate, high end sales, a professional role within an oil and gas/mining company, innate talent/skill or entrepreneurship.

    Outwith those fields, most people will never see their incomes grow past a specific plateau. That is just the plain truth, and something I've done a lot of digging into. 90% of jobs out there fall into the category of starting low and reaching a moderate salary level.

    Being brutally honest, there's no point chasing money - just do the career you're good at, have an interest in and want to succeed in. That, or take a risk and start something.

    Investment banking. I just want to do well you know. I don't go to a grammar school but everywhere you just hear about medicine so I did subjects based around medicine but I realised I wouldn't enjoy working in a hospital as much. I would much prefer a job in the city where I could travel a bit. Do you think brexit will affect jobs in ib?

    Thank you for this. I haven't got much work experience besides medical work experience so I'm trying to get some work experience outside medicine. I might join some societies at university. Can I work in technology with a chemistry degree? If I decided to go in through that route. I thought you would need computer science.

    Millionaires are usually entrepreneurs and investors. I don't think an NHS doctor or a dentist will earn enough to become a millionaire.

    There's a huge difference between doing well and earning a "reasonable amount" and being a millionaire.

    You can, but it'll take a lot of outside uni work to get to the level of skill to be hired. Basically, there's no easy path and it's really how much you're willing to graft to get into any of your careers of interest.

    Do you mind expanding on this a bit? The 'very easily' piqued my interest.

    I'm not obsessed with income (beyond securing good living standards) but I see no reason to turn down easy money.

    There's also the definition of a "millionaire". Net worth or income? if the former, yes. If the latter, then no.

    Market forces + inflation + saving a portion of a very decent income..

    Millionaires are worth millions, that's the whole point of the name. A doctor or dentist with enough financial discipline can fairly easily hit a mil in networth or more.

    However if you want to make millions annually as a doctor, you have to be a) extremely lucky, b) work in a country with a sizeable private healthcare regime, and c) be one of absolute best in an already high paying specialty.

    Thanks for the response.

    I've had similar discussions with my dad and it generally seems to boil down to financial discipline. I agree with you about maximising income from practice, although I plan on staying in the UK and don't expect millions in income at any point in my life.

    Judging from the prices of dental serives in UK, it doesn't seem impossible to be millionaire if saving money for 10 or 20 years,

    I would be happy If I had 6 000 pounds of income per year.

    Why put the OP down by your shameless bragging?
    Are you a milionaire?
    No?
    Then be quiet about how people are doing in terms of their efforts in business.

    am I a millionaire? Perhaps not but if people are constantly telling people you can become a millionaire by making your own business this will get them in deep ****. They will think yea, making a business is easy and pull out a loan and when the business fails, they will be down x amount

    Better be nice and truthful then give him false hopes

    Hey guys, i know this might be a popular question but are any of you guys a millionaire!
    And if so how did u become a millionaire, the reason im asking is i want to be a millionaire!
    Im not a lazy 15 year old boy who sprnds all his money on videogames i have had an ebay shop which isnt much but it made me some money and i now have about £1000 saved.
    Yes im only 15 and yes i want to be a millionaire but i know thats not easy and i wont win the lottery or be given it! All the stuff i have ever got i have worked for it myseld not got it bought.
    So if ur a millionaire HOW?

    Go on a songwriting course at Bimm music college, learn to write songs for other people. It's easy especially if you have someone who can co write with you or you
    Look up Bimm on google to find their college closest to your area.
    Go on their open day, then you get the chance to go in the song writing room and speak to the tutor. I went, it was brilliant and i learnt that you can copy small parts of other people's lyrics and they can never find out if you do it in a clever way.
    I couldn't believe i found out that and other interesting things from speaking to the tutor so you can book an appointment online and go with your parents and or friends. They also have a summer school.
    Learn to play musical instruments so you can join a band or form your own or learn about music production.
    I will be starting at a music college next week Monday as it is something i always wanted to do so if you think you have no talent to sing or play then music producing is the best way to become a millionaire.
    Or become an actor and go on auditions.
    Get an acting agent to get you auditions
    Just type acting agents on google.

    Watch a film called Sing Street on free film websites called Putlocker, Showbox or 123movies.to
    because the lead singer in that film went to a music college and he had no acting experience but he auditioned for the part and got it. His friend asked him to go to the auditions with her then he decided to audition too so if he had not gone with her he would never have got the job. I read that info on the Bimm website so that made me want to watch the film

    Sign up with www.StarNow and www.CapitalCasting as these both offer film extra, acting jobs for any age group or if your not able to join yet wait til your 18.

    Or go to any cash converters or any specialist music shop and buy guitars or other music equipment then sell them on ebay. I buy my guitars and other stuff in cash converters because they are so unusual and no one else has them but i keep them for myself because they are so unique but if i wanted to i could sell them for more money on ebay. Some guitars are worth a lot of money so you could easily sell them at a higher price than what you bought them for.
    I don't know how to sell on ebay so i will have to learn but not sure how to go about learning it as this will come in handy for when i want to start selling other guitars and other musical instruments like electric violin, etc that i buy.

    Or look up millionaires on google and contact them to ask for advice or contact Steve Jobs or other famous millionaires for advice

    Type Flipboard on google. I saw on there a story and a list of advice about how to start your own business and become a millionaire a few months ago and they had a millionaire on it but if you see any millionaires name on it you can contact them by email or twitter and ask for advice. You might have to register with them with an email address then type on it that your looking for advice to become a millionaire or start your own company

    Or you can wait til your 18 and marry a millionairess or if you start your own band you will meet other famous people and marry a famous model, actress ,singer, etc

    Depends. They probably wouldn't sign up to TSR, but there's a good chance that someone who's been on TSR from early on became a millionaire and is still on here for entertainment's sake. There are doctors, scientists and millionaires on 9gag, so why wouldn't there be any on TSR?

    To the TO - there are 'safe' ways to become a millionaire that take quite long, and there are quicker ways that aren't quite as safe.

    Safe way - pick a degree for a well paying profession. Study medicine, pick the right specialisation and at some point as a consultant you'll be pulling in about £100,000 a year. Live modestly and after a couple of decades you can be a millionaire. But I guess that's not what you have in mind. Study law or economics at a prestigious university, work your arse off, do competitive internships, then land a job at a big law firm or bank in London, work your arse off even more, and you'll be a millionaire at some point.

    Alternatively, the less 'safe' (because not as predictable) route will be that of entrepreneurship. Found a business and make money with that.
