Zeek, You're wise now to be considering the cost of toys you might want to have one day.. In my 37 years of learning from my MANY mistakes, I offer you this.. Pick a trade that will land you the cash! Period.. If you think it's something you might want to do, go talk to the people that are now doing it. If you want to be an entrepreneur/business owner.. Seek out the best and talk to them.. get to know what type of person is successful in business. Same thing goes for Doctors, Dentists, Lawyers, Brokers, Indian Chiefs (well I guess), etc etc. If there's any direction that interests you, learn about it BEFORE someone or parent tells you you "Should" do this or "Should" do that.
Get a grip on what's out there now and what might be out there 10.. 20 years from now. There will always be doctors, there will (unfortunately) always be lawyers.. and unless we pass HR 25 Fairtax bill, there will always be IRS agents
.. just a plug.
But pick your path wisely, not just on a premise of something some parent wants you to be.
If you want the theater, choose a path that pays the big bucks that you can be passionate about doing. Doctors are indeed passionate about the work they do.. A knee surgeon must be happy when he sees young athletes running again.. and he gets PAID!
In short, find something you can pour your heart into that will make you the bucks.. Then you can hire one of these asteemed pro's here to build your theater turn-key and sooner rather than later in life, you'll have the money and the time (money+time= real weath) to enjoy the fruits of wise honest and dedicated work in the RIGHT field for you.
Good Luck! I'd give anything to be where you are now again.. As tough as it may seem, it's ALL infront of you to be consistent and diligent with your choice of career. Learn learn learn, even if you have to take a year off to just scout out different careers for majoring. Also, common sense (how many literature or humanities majors make millions after college? unless of course they're some top 1% novelist or journalist)
By the way.. Very few wealthy folks draw a W-2 (that means you gotta be your own man.. Working for someone else is just filling their pockets).. All just an opinion.
