2COOL/Greg commented "not getting wealthy working for someone else,".
Both those statements reminded me of a high school buddy who started working for AAMCO trans shop after graduation; did that for 7 years, then opened his own place. Retired about 10 years ago, no debt, with a nice house in Florida and Maryland; nothing outrageous, just nice houses and some other toys. I mentioned to him that he did very well to retire at 54 and have 2 houses paid off. His next comment was one I'll never forget..He said "You have NO IDEA how much money is out there until you go into business for yourself."
2COOL is correct; America is the best country on earth to get whatever you want; just need a plan, commitment, and hard work. Sad fact is, many kids are taught that "rich people" owe them something....because they're rich.. Lousy parents teach that crap.
