I made some severe mistakes that basically caused me – over the first four years trying to make it online, so between 2004 to 2008 – to get into over $60,000 of debt.
Just to make you very clear how severe that was, I was around about 24 years old $60,000 of debt, five credit cards, two bank loans. And worst of all nobody in my life knew that I had any debt at all, because I was too ashamed to basically admit it.

Likewise, if you or a family member or child wanted to become a doctor, they would go to college, they would go to university probably for six to eight years, maybe more. They would spend probably $100,000 or more and basically, they would be learning from experts, professional doctors that could train them and teach them, and give them the knowledge that they needed to do their job properly.
