    Living in poverty...
    Aww, don't be pessimistic, I'm sure you won't be living in poverty. Just do your best in school and you'll get a great, well paid job

    Even if you don't, just marry your way into money. :clap2:

    and £500,000 isn't a lot after 40% for tax, the 10% equity and the 25% costs i only make 25% myself and there a lot to get
    What he means is that all of this won't get you any actual happiness.
    And anyway, you don't get rich in the blink of an eye; it takes time, effort, failure and constant dedication. Are you up for that? By the looks of it, you seem to have everything planned like it will most definitely happen. But what if it doesn't? What will you do then? I'm sorry to burst your bubble but how will you cope if all of your materialistic ambitions are not fulfilled. You cannot base your future simply on materialistic ideals. It won't make you happy in the long run. Especially if things don't work out. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't have those dreams, do but with a balance, what about charity work, a relationship or even helping the homeless? Something that will make you truly happy not just 'money' as it will only leave you happy temporarily and when you've had it for a really long time, it won't mean the same to you and its attraction will have faded out.

    Hopefully a band 8a/8b lead cardiology pharmacist, potentially with PhD under my belt, maybe with some sort of experience in academia researching and lecturing.

    Financially, I hope to have bought a house by then.

    i've already had a few failures but you turn that into a lession what don't you buy next time and with the client list i already have i don't need to worry about what happens as i can change my business to go multiple ways from direct to trade supply chain, buying to order, and just hitting threads and keeping stock for that trend, even becoming a diamond and gemstone dealer is a possibility and well to be honest a lot of charities are a con. i have plans for a relationship in a decade or so and i'd help community projects so the local homeless, local youth projects and that it just not priced at any major costs and for having attraction that true and i'll still have the passion about what i am selling even i don't need the money anymore
