    So long story short, i'm 22. Graduated HS, and only have some college completed. I work with my father with real estate development and have potential to make lots and lots of money, but as the old saying goes money isnt happiness. I have a nack for spending money and buying new things but with this job working with my dad im just not happy. i mean the next best thing would be to go back to school, finish up and start a new career, but the way the economy is and employment dropping, idk what to do.
    Working with pops has security and lots of money to be made, but i see how much of a workaholic he is and i dont want to be like that.
    what to fuckin do...

    My idea would be to work part-time with your dad, talk to him about it. Say (for study purposes) you work 3 days in the week with him, and the rest of the time you study, that prevents you from becoming a workaholic, this also prevents that you two get sick from eachother of seeing eachother too much so to speak. It builds something up for you both financially and academically, and as such you get best of both worlds. Most jobs suck , so work isn't going to be nice anyway wether its with someone else or with your dad. So work with your dad lets say for a 5 year limit, then move on towards something more established for yourself and your own family.

    Firstly is don't stress it so much. You're only 22. I wish I could go back to that age and try somethings differently.

    Work for your dad for now, save up some $$ so that if you do head back to school, you'll have some for spending.
