If you were offered $10,000, how would you spend it? Do you truthfully believe you could invest it wisely? How would your values affect your buying decisions? Where would you spend your money? Can you visualize yourself spending it on that new car? Would you put it in the bank for your future educational expenses? What would you do to get the most benefit and enjoyment from your money?

If you compare the next 40 years is like that $10,000, how you spend your time? How will you invest in your future?  Four years of high school will prepare you for college, career college, military service, apprenticeship, or the work world.  

Your career decision is a serious one that is 4 years in its development. The end of high school is not the end; it is your first beginning. The end of your college years, vocational training, military service or the start of your OJT (on the job trainingis the beginning of the next 40 to 50 years of your life. How will you spend it wisely? Consider more than just salary when evaluating a job offer. (more than just money)
