    As the title says, I truly believe that in today's society/economy unless you have a degree and years of experience and a vast bank of professional networks, you will not succeed in business.

    However 40-50 years ago when Alan Sugar and Richard Branson were young, they were able to start huge corporations from nothing.

    Nowadays huge transnational corporations have monopolised all parts of business meaning we are funnelled into the "rat run" of getting a degree>getting an office job etc

    I would argue that the internet and the pace of technological change opens up more opportunities to for young people to start their own business than ever before. Although becoming as successful as Sugar or Branson is as practically impossible for any given person as it ever has been.

    I disagree look at the internet, apps, games Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter. I think esp in music this is one of the most lucrative times to be young, talented and thirsty.

    no its not .

    Lazy
    uneducated
    degree-less
    if you are not specialised or have any skills you cant expect to get a good job
    But sometimes people with loads of degrees don't get jobs because they get degrees in useless things.
    sometimes its the economy but hey its not impossible.

    I think it is certainly harder to expect to be richer than our parents especially as salaries overall have reduced ( social mobility has reduced) and arguably job security is less compared with our parents generations! Property is more expensive as well...

    After all we are the generation expected to have an overall lower standard of living, but I expect outliers could out earn their parents...

    Its hopeless, we're all doomed to being a wage slave with just over broke jobs...but the alternative is? Essentially we are the modern slave, although the ruling 1% go to great lengths to complicate it so that not 1 in a million people will realize what's actually going on.

    What rubbish. Right now a teenager, somewhere, is working on a billion-pound idea.

    Throughout history lots of people have said 'we've invented everything we're ever going to invent'. They've all been wrong.

    the ideas are there it just needs to be utilised
    so my personal guide to success is
    find something you're passionate about (jewellery and precious, luxury things)
    never let go of the dreams and the end goal (house, wife, kids, cars, watches, jewellery)
    keep motivated and never give up

    and you can successful even in a massively filled market
    any information just either quote me or message me

    Rubbish. The kid who created the million dollar website

    http://www.milliondollarhomepage.com/

    did so to fund university and in doing so made over $1 million! It is possible to do it but it is very hard. That is why not many manage to do it. But with your current attitude, you don't stand a chance.

    Good luck!
