Are you sure that the way you perceive things is the way they really are? Are you willing to challenge the norm in order to succeed?

I happen to know a few people who have such combinations of qualifications. They are people that have not fallen for this assumption. Another common assumption is that of thinking having more money will solve your money problems. Ask the guy who inherited a million dollars and lost it all in a year or so whether it sorted out his problems. Knowing how to make money, make it grow and learning how to invest it wisely are part of the answer.  Having more money is not the answer, but financial intelligence is the answer. How about the assumption that having your own business is risky? Many would agree to that no doubt. Having a job is the more secure thing to do.
