    I'm up for it. I'm considering a number of career paths; robber and drug dealer are at the forefront of my mind currently. If anyone has any other ideas (not pimp though - tried it and it's high risk early on) then I'm always open to new possibilities. I've been thinking about murder but am not sure exactly what can be gained? If anyone has studied a BA/BSc in Murder then maybe they could give me a few pointers?
    haha

    So if someone were to give you £10m, you could quite happily not work or have any more career goals?
    which to be honest is exactly what i do

    In the top 100 richest people in the UK, something like 75 didn't go to uni. If you have a degree, it's easier, so more tempting to just work for other people all your life and never really push for the ultra-mega-huge moneyzz.

    Random fact for you all. Those figures are a guess btw, but it's the general gist.
    if your daddy or mommy owns a company why would you want to waste years in uni?

    Not a desire really, no desires pertaining to money, my desires are the usual cliched ones you know, be happy etc. etc. If I make £1m or more, result. If not as long as I lead a fulfilling life it wont bother me at all.

    You don't need to graduate from one of the top universities to earn a fortune, but you need determination and motivation to succeed. Many businessmen/women don't have any qualifications. My dad isn't academic but he's a free-range poultry farmer and earns about £100k a year, with a turnover of £150k.

    this thread is littered with ridiculously pretentious self-delusional statements. If you have a great idea, stop talking about how great it is and just start doing something with it!

    All this talk of money-making through business ventures makes it seem faaaar too easy as well, if it was so easy to make millions off the web there would be way more guys like Zuckerburg making millions. As it is, they're the brilliant exceptions. Also lowstart up costs does not increase the likelihood of profitability when dealing with the INTERNET! Facebook is just a massively overpriced but useful thing right now, it's stocks are overpriced by Microsoft throwing it's money around when they bought a fraction of it. When investors realize that they'd better start looking at turnovers and profit margins rather than just how awesome something sounds on computer the flurry of huge buy-outs etc. will end or at least be extremely scarce. Basically you better hope people are still this stupid by the time you guys start rolling out your facebook/bebo/myspace copycats.

    Why do you keep repeating this?! I'm not being funny but this is about the third time you've told us about your Dad. Congrats and all but I'm not really sure why you keep telling us...

    You talking to me? I have lots of great ideas, and I have done lots with them. Internet business I have no experience with, apart from things like ebay and stuff.

    £1million doesn't really go very far tbh. You'd have to be worth £3million++ to actually feel like a millionaire.

    Can we have the name of a brand or company you started please... Otherwise, heck, you may be making all this stuff up and we wouldn't want to accuse of that now would we?

    That would be a pretty awesome milestone to reach =] Better than the money would be the achievement, as in knowing you've earnt £1m would be better than having it because you won or inherited it or gained it in some other luck based way. Not that having that kinda money wouldn't be totally awesome too x]

    No, you can't have the name. I do not wish to be identifiable to every guy on this forum with my name and address.

    You can think I'm making this up if you like. I really don't care.

    No, I don't think that.

    What I do know is:

    I do not wish to divulde political views to clients. I have clients in cuba and such who I do not wish to offend. I am also looking at supplying governmental organsitions. Just being careful, as I do not want to make them go elsewhere if they radically disagree with my views.

    I also do not wish to give my clients an idea of my age. On here, you would rapidly realise I am pretty young, but in business most of it is over the phone or email. Ageism unfortunately still exists.

    Solowolf, the skepisism others have is great, people think business is difficult and always a waste of time, a myth which the apprentice and dragons den continue to suggest, which is, as you said, great for those of us who do it as less competion for us.

    Some people hate risk and challenge, and like the predictibility of a 9 to 5 job. I'm not one of them.

    a) I'm 'looking to' be the world's greatest sex God. Is it going to happen? No.
    b) How many of your clients know your TSR username? How many people are going to pass on that information to your clients? Zero (if what you say is true...)
    c) Less competition? You do realise that for every single one of us realists in this thread, there are a million other deluded fools like you?
    d) You sound like a pretentious arse. 'I hate the predictability of the 9-5 grind'.... give it a rest. You do realise that if you ever do become successful, you'll be working to the business hours of everyone else in the world? Its not like there's a secret entrepreneurs world where you all stay up til 4 in the morning, patting each other on the back for all these 'ideas' you have...
