It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose. • The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow. • Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. • Life is not divided into terms. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time. • Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity. • If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
