1. Decide on a career path and how you’re going to get there
The first thing to consider is what you plan to do with the rest of your life. Your planned career path will give you an indication of the type of money you’ll be earning. If you aspire to earn a lot of money, you need to choose a high-paying career. Your plan might be to work to live instead of living to work. You’ll probably have to settle for less money in exchange for less stress.
Once you know what you want to do, decide on what qualifications you need. Investigate the cost. Make sure that the return on your education investment will be worth it in the long-term.
