    I'd like to counter that I make a living as a self-employed artist in the poorest state in the union, and do so because I was never able to find a day job.
    What country are you from, Masaka?

    Even if spears spare him.

    As someone who has worked for some successful schools and is planning on opening my own one day, money is a big thought for me. It is definitely not for you if you are not 150% passionate about it, because it is a lot of WORK. The people I know who are making good money are literally hustling from 10am-9pm 5 or 6 days a week sometimes. A lot of school owners are burnt out. That's why they turn to things like NAPMA because their sales pitch is "do less and make money hand over fist." I really admire guys like Omega that keep their business going without falling into the trap of laziness and greed.
