DO YOU MAKE MORE MONEY OVER A LIFETIME IF YOU GET A DEGREE?  YES!

Is it still true?  I've often wondered if, over a lifetime, a college degree makes a difference in a persons earnings?  According to an article that was written by CNN back in 2017, it does.

GENERALLY SPEAKING

According to the stats, a person with an average college degree in 2016, the person who had a degree earned a median of 67% more than high school grads that year.

There's a lot of other benefits regarding going to college. In addition to experience things in life you may have never considered before entering this new world and environment, college grads are more likely to exercise, vote, and they are less likely to smoke.

The median income for 30- to 34-year-olds was shown to be around $40,944 for those with a Bachelor's degree and $31,807 for those with nothing higher than a high school diploma.

YOU CAN MAKE IT THROUGH COLLEGE

I absolutely hate it when I hear a young person say, "School isn't my thing."  When I know that learning is everybody's thing...There is a school out their for you. And don't think that you CAN'T go to college  because you're poor. For families that make around $30,000 a year, they can sometimes go to college for free! You should check into it! Contact someone today...Just get started. Get the ball rolling..Set the wheels in motion. What can it hurt?
