Advice for a teenWatch
It's important to know/remember there isn't an overnight get rich quick, get rid of worries etc. Especially at 17 it's important to realise that whilst there are ways to increase income, to want to travel the word financially free is a big ask.
That being said, look at careers, look at the long term. What careers can you get into that will allow you to to save whilst you earn that maybe you can take a holiday, or some time off.
I am 17, I am currently trying out dropshipping although, so far I have failed. I am not sure why but I'm worrying because I want to be financially free even though I'm still young. Is there any advice someone could give me? I am looking to travel the world whilst making money instead of going to uni in my late teens/early 20s.
Are you currently at school or college?
I know a few people who are Civil Engineers. One of them does a lot of travel abroad for his company and has been the Civil Engineer in charge of projects in places like Dubai and New York.
Great to hear your're interested in civil engineering!
My name is Anna and I study civil engineering and I am currently in my placement year (3rd year) at Surrey
If you work with an international company, then hopefully you may get the chance to move offices to other countries as well as work on projects based around the world. It's also something that I am really interested in pursuing as well
Would you prefer being based on site or in the office? The company I'm doing my placement is consulting based so in the office mainly (because of the pandemic I am working from home) but there are opportunities to go on site occasionally.
All the best
