When you want to make a lot of money in life, it’s easy to think that you have to follow one set path to make it happen. But that’s not necessarily the case. In fact, you don’t have to become a banker or an internet entrepreneur just to be successful. But, to help you decide on the path that will help you to cash in, here are three key things that you need to consider.
Up first is how long it’s going to take for you to get yourself ready for it. If you want to be a lawyer, yes you’re going to have a good job and make lots of money, but you should also factor in your study time it will take to get you there.

You also need to think about how long you have available in your life plan to make this happen. And be realistic. If you want to change your life, it’s not going to happen overnight, so try to focus on a five or ten-year plan, not just a few months!
