Good morning to all the guys of the Forum!
This is my story:
I am a 26 year old boy (almost 27), of Swiss and Dominican origin, I live in Switzerland and I was born and raised here. I speak English, Italian and Spanish.
After doing compulsory schooling, I worked a couple of years as an electrician and then quit because I didn't like the job.
After this, I did an apprenticeship as a salesman in a store getting my diploma.
After this diploma I carried out the military (up to sergeant) for 9 months, because, as perhaps some of you will know, the military here is obligatory (yes, we have an army even being neutral).
After the military I was hired by an insurance company as a financial consultant. It went well until I finished my circle of knowledge (for about a year). I made enemy choices of wealth at that time, like taking a car to lease and being a slave to my lifestyle, spending too much. As if money were infinite. This led me to excessive indebtedness for my young age. Having later discovered a book on the wealth of an Italian writer, Alfio Bardolla (Money makes happiness), I realized that I had to change course.
Trying to get back up, after leaving the job as a consultant, I started my "career" in network marketing for herbalife. Obviously I still didn't know what the fastlane was.
After failing in that area (after about a year) I thought that to have a chance I would, I know now, necessarily "increase my intrinsic value". So I did a business maturity, and now I find myself at university studying business administration. But I always thought "there was more".
So I found MJ's book, searching on google, which enlightened me. Now I know how you can travel on Fastlane, and my studies seem a waste of time. I know I should leave school but I'm afraid. I also don't sleep at night to understand how I could create something of value to improve the lives of millions of people.
I know there's my way out there. I'll get there and I'll do it..

It is a pleasure to be part of this forum and have the opportunity to grow with you.
Thank you
CM

Welcome to the tribe! We're all on a journey, stumbling forward. :)

If you're thinking of leaving school, something to consider is that you might learn some useful things--for example, accounting principles--or make valuable connections to and/or through other students, professors, etc. There might also be opportunities for you to start a business (and earn course credit for it) & get funding for it, since lots of business schools have competitions where they award money to the winners. So, school could be a stepping stone on your path forward.

Yes, thank you!
This is what I'm going to do:
move to part-time at university. In the meantime I'm doing courses on Umedy for web development and application development.
