I grew up in a town with a population of roughly 100 people and did mostly hard labor work through my teens. After high school i turned down college scholarships and went straight into a sales job. College seemed like an easy ticket to $30,000 of debt and a $10/hour job so no thanks.
Started my own biz while still selling cars, quit my job simply because i was reaching a point where i was depressed and needed to make a change. I left with no money in the bank and no income; this was November of 2016. I spent the last year in the car biz working 63 hours per week at the dealership and 40+ at home building skills in social media, cryptocurrency, and marketing. Now i teach all three professionally.
