How many of you believe that working in a regular job can take you to your dream house, dream car, early retirement, quality time with family, idyllic vacations and an easy life? If you believe, what's your catch?

I think it can if I use the money I earn wisely. Explanation: I am currently working on my bachelor's of science in business and accounting. By the time I graduate, I should be able to bring in triple what my online businesses are bringing in now. The sites I run (along with the ideas I have, which are costly) have the potential to be something great with the right amount of work and investment. In other words, the money I earn from the good job I will be qualified for when I graduate will be well spent investing in my businesses.

well you do have it planned out pretty well! But the cost of living makes a hole even in the best incomes!!

i believe that your dream is not dependent on the job you had but by the drive of the person to achieve that dream. some people achieve "the dream" because they work smart. They easily climb the corporate ladder and got to the top in record time. earning them a very fat paycheck. and yet some venture into business and are very successful.

no offense meant, you have to be a real believer to go for that. I have tried different jobs and either they are fun and not well paying or well paying but too strenuous. One part of my life is always compromised and I don't believe working in a regular job can ever help you achieve real balance. There are always things that pop up on days you need to be elsewhere and one has to be compromise and the consequences of that compromise always have to be dealt with..
