To all teachers and educators out there, what advice would YOU give to students that aren't A
nor honor students? Would YOU inform such students that they have no bright future or inform them that despite their lackluster academic performance, they would have a hopeful future? This is referring to students with an I.Q. of 110 and above.
My husband did mediocre in High School entered college late in his 20's working and going to classes got his Bachelors. Drove cabs got his Masters in Music History and has been working in the Library of Congress making over 100k. I was an almost straight A student. my parents paid for my Bachelors and Masters.

Simply find some career or area that is indeed interesting to you and become tenacious at achieving all that is necessary to "spend your time" doing that, (the thing you truly love). Rather than being miserable and wasting your precious time doing something you don't love!
If you can't pull your GPA up in high school you better "get er done" in college even though since you didn't get it (your GPA) up in high school you will probably have to spend more money for the degree.
When one enters college if you haven't already discovered that area of interest find it asap to minimize: (1) the number of courses you will have to complete, (2) tuition cost and (3) time dedicated...

The common wisdom is that you should go to college, get a good education, and find a job afterwards and you will be financially successful. Isn't that an outdated concept? The average college grad is unemployed for two years after graduation, and when I went to teller training a month after I...
