    Being a millionaire for social reasons is dangerous. Being a millionaire as a side effect of success is fine IMO

    In life you do not need copious amounts of cash, this is an illusion portrayed by the media. A misdirection to guide us away from what is important, which is loving and caring. Wish to be fertile, so u can have your own kids, wish to be blessed with the personality a woman wishes to have in her life.

    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.

    I've been looking into investment banking for a while and i heard that it's very stressful and the pay is not worth the stress and the job. What other career path pay well that aren't law, banking or medicine? I would like to go into law or banking after university but I'm worried because I'm doing a chemistry degree and I don't know if you get much jobs from that. Should I change to biomed?

    Chemistry is a great degree and you get loads of jobs with that. Most employers don't care what degree you studied tbh as you have transferable skills. Chemistry would be a good degree to get into banking due to the quantitative elements in it. :yes:

    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?
