World changes rapidly and so are living standards. A model “school – university – work” is now outdated. It is not necessary to follow it to achieve success in life.

You can choose to dedicate 2 full days of your time to work and spend other 5 with your family and friends. With time you can hire a manager who runs the business for you and do what you want with your own time.
