Stripping For College!?!?

So I am pretty much poor, my mother could never pay for college and I would never think of asking her, she does enough. And since I don’t have the luxury of being rich I may have to strip my way through college to pay for tuition, apartment, books, leisure, food, and supplies. I mean come on it’s the real world! And if men want to be perverts I might as well make money off their disgusting asses right? You gotta survive, and I am not selling my body, I am very modest and I look at this as a way of survival. Plus I am going to attend college in NYC, and living costs there are outrageous. So about how much money do you make a night stripping in NYC?

Investment banking vs management consulting?

Hello. I recently applied for a job at numerous companies and got offers at my top choices. I have my MBA. Goldman Sachs (investment bank) and McKinsey and Company (management consulting which is consulting companies on how to run their company) both are offering my jobs in NYC. I would love to be super rich, have a family, and become an executive of a fortune 500. I am debating on which offer I should take. Here are pros and cons.

Goldman Sachs
Pros- make six figures and 60 k more than McKinsey, work in NYC, get job offers at hedge funds after a few years at GS, great company to have on resume.
Cons- normal work weeks are 110 hours each week, no work life balance, when you leave you most likely can only get another financial job, job growth rate is really bad, would have no time for a family.

McKinsey and Company
Pros- Six figures a year and seven figures when partner after 6-8 years with the firm, great company to have on resume, normal work hours, great work life balance, have time for a family, travel only in the first few years, great benefits, most people who leave after being partner for some time go on to become fortune 500 Executives and are super rich (could easily afford a private jet and a mansion and a luxury apartment in NYC and a lamborghini), more opportunities for when you leave the firm, your role greatly impacts a huge company which is exciting.
Cons- less pay than investment banker.

Overall, I think McKinsey is better since even though I won’t be making as much as I bankers in the first few years, when I’m partner, I’ll make a ton more and when I leave, I could get a job as senior management/executive at a fortune 500.

Starting a business vs. working for someone else?

Hello. I recently got my MBA from grad school. I have been offered jobs at huge management consulting firms (McKinsey,BCG, and Bain) that pay six figures right out of grad school. Each year, your pay increases and job growth rate is high. After ten years, you are usually promoted to partner and make 1 plus million a year. Once you leave the firm, you have tons of business management knowledge and cash. Your opportunities for your next career is huge. Most alumni from these firms go on to fortune 500 companies and become CEO. My goal is to get super rich, have a family, have a mansion, and have a luxury apartment in NYC. I would probably stay with the firm for 5 years after becoming partner and then move onto viacom where I would apply for a senior management position and make my way up to executive. I would then retire.

I also have an idea for a business. It would be a web consulting firm that consults clients on their websites and web businesses and how they could achieve certain goals. I am great with determining what a eel company needs to make revenue, traffic, and marketing. However, if I have a job, I would not have time to start the business. Maybe I could do this as a fun project when I retire, work the company for a little, and then sell it off. Also, I think it would be easier when I retire since I would have time and I would gain experience from my jobs at viacom and the other co silting firms.

Normally, I would agree that people who make bad income should quit their job and start a company. However, I am being offered jobs that could easily make me super rich. I am thinking that when I am in apposition for a really high paying job, it makes more sense to work for someone else, than start my own company.

Administrator answers:

There’s nothing stopping you from making your own company while you have a job. Plenty of people do it. At least try to create a business plan and do some research to make sure you idea is realistic. There are tons of companies doing exactly what you’re planning on, and they have many more connections and experience than you do… It’s not a new idea. Think of ways to make it worth it to potential customers… Ways to make it really really stand out. After you have a business plan written out, then you should look at how realistic it is and how much money you can probably make from this. My only concern is that your only interest seems to be “getting super rich”… So maybe starting a business isn’t that path you want to take. Often the “super rich” part comes after a few years of developing the company. People start businesses out of a passion, not greed. In your case, I’d stay with the firm you’re being hired to. However, I’d also warn against dubious claims the company and others are giving you about working there. There is no company in the world where after 10 years “most” employees are making a million a year. It’s either completely false, or it’s really really really competitive (you’ll be working 80 hours a week, and have no outside life… Just tons of money). Life just doesn’t come with 1 million dollar salary guarantees. I hope you have tons of connections in the business world if you think you’re going to get half as far as you’re planning… It’s never “what you know” or “how hard you work”… It’s “who you know that will promote you to CEO”.

Administrator answers:

I know it’s very tempting to go into the corporate world when you are offered such high a salary to begin with.

Starting your own business is a risk. Even if your market research is good, there is still some degree of uncertainty. On the other hand, working for someone else will not make you rich. It never will. The only thing that can make you rich is if you take the money you earn and invest it wisely. If you don’t, you will quickly find that your lifestyle will eat up every penny you earn and you will have no real assets to show for it. Have you read anything from Robert Kiyosaki? This is what he calls the “rat race”.

So, what should you choose?

I think you should examine what is it that you are passionate about. Being rich is not a goal by itself (there is no passion in money). Is it your freedom? Being creative? Helping others? Having a family?

One more point to consider. It’s far easier for you to take risks now, while you are young and single, free of family responsibilities than it will be latter on.

Sharon asks…

Moving to NYC in 9 months?

I made the decision about 2 weeks ago to move to the BIG APPLE!!! I’ve already started my research into apartments just to get an idea of average prices on 2 bedroom apartments. I’ve also been researching safe areas of different boroughs to keep my options open, checking out the subway system, and even some safety tips to living in the city. I have two questions that I’m having a hard time finding on the internet:
1.) I have been in the restaurant business for 5 years now with banquet waitress and a la carte training in a moderately formal setting. Obviously Manhattan would be the place to work. What restaurants or banquet halls should I look into? How much would I make per hour or on an average shift a night?
2.) I am already thinking of saving money because I have a few months to get a head start! I have the luxury of living at home with minimal rent and expenses, so saving shouldn’t be a problem. Should I open a cd account to maximize my saving?
Thank you for all your answers

Administrator answers:

You should visit the city for a week. Calculate what you are spending on each meal, cab ride, subway etc.

Take that number and add it to the difference in rent now, to rent in the city.
Bank all of that for 9 months.

If you can do that comfortably, you will be fine in the city. (the city pays better).
Good luck.
