- Learn to Build Web Apps | Develop my own site
- Earn BA in Marketing | Its government paid
- Learn Chinese via Rosetta Stone | Don't have a solid reason other than it's cool to me =D
I'm placing my bets on web development as a means to killing two birds with one stone: Earning cash faster than working an entry level position in some corporation AND having the skills to build my own website/web apps.
Although looking on the internet to check for programming jobs looks like it's going to be harder than I thought competing with all the peeps from India.
Maybe I can get a job with a lot of down time in front of a computer so I can work my web business while getting paid. That way I can make money consistently. Freelancing programming jobs in the beginning would include many hours without work as I look for more work.
This is similar to what MJ says he did in his book by driving limos and reading and learning on down time. After that he did webdesign full time before finally building a successful website. This looks like the type of path I'm going to have to follow to get where I want to go.
