Truthfully, they took a high paying position and turned it into a group. So, as of now I'm at 50K. To me, that's still low for a DBA, but I'm cool. I'm going to get into this position, get my experience as a DBA. The benefits are pretty damn good, as are the vacation and sick pay.

start working towards it

Man... when they say money isn't everything--it really isn't.

Today I went to work, told my boss thank you for the opportunities you have given me but I've gone as far as I can go in this company.

No kind of benefits, sometimes I don't get my full 8, sometimes I struggle to get 5 and a half hours. I'm in school right now, so I will always have that to fall back on. But I told him, I'm done.

I'm 23 currently living with my folks, just earned my second a.ssociates degree in Career Counselling as of yesterday (my first one was in Hotel Management), I just got a job with a major airline, the pay isnt the craziest to start with but its bound to go up after probation with better positions up for grabs which I cant complain about. I'm looking to make a k!lling out of the perks that come with the job and fly as much as I can since I like travelling and seeing new things.

As far as life goes I'm trying to start building my finances as far as saving and investing goes and I'm also trying to get out of my parents house as I need my own space and freedom (biggest concern as I feel that its slowing my growth as a person but I need to plan and save before I go out on my own).

I'm ok with where I am in life at the moment but I definitely feel that I have alot of living and adventure to do in the future. I know money is important but I value freedom and happiness more,so I'm definitely more focused on that for the moment and eventually I'll build something long-term, I just want to enjoy my youth and prepare pieces by pieces as I go.

My dude, I'm exactly your age. I know how you feel man. I never wasted time running around the streets, but I know people who have and it has affected them big time. You can never make up for lost time, so all you can do is move forward.

Start by this:
1. Where do you want to be in 10 years?
2. Mostly any kind of career that's well paying (100K+) requires a college education (so apply to college, you can start at a Community College first if you want)
3. Make long term goals and short term goals
4. Work your a.ss off and don't let anything or anybody distract you from where you want to be.
5. Start on this plan tomorrow morning as time waits on no man.
6. Constantly re-evaluate yourself and make the necessary changes. Remember the right decision isn't always the easiest one to make.

Trying to become more spiritual and conscious. More strategic. Manage my money and my health a lot better. Thinking about becoming vegan. Detoxifying my body and mind. I know now that all of my problems are because of mistakes I've made. I should atleast $50,000 or more in the bank now. I will eventually. Its okay that I don't though. Guess I'm one of the few who could care less about material possessions, school and money.

Was wondering what the qualifications are for data base administration position? I am not interested in the field but I have a buddy who was telling me he wanted to get this position and he talking about doing all sorts of certification. Is it about the degree or the certification? I always tell him to get a degree and then get experience but he was really hammering about the certifcations. How did you land the position?

I stumbled into the position. An experience got me the job. Long story short, a DBA left the company. When he left, everything went to hell. Myself and another developer were called upon to fix the mess. With the little permissions we had (talking security permissions), we were able to reverse engineer and put a band aid on the situation. We could have fixed it, if we had more security access credientials, but either way, we impressed. The position came open, I was offered the job. Me and my coworker/the other developer are going to replace the DBA that left. So, the answer to your question was right place right time. I stepped up in their time of need and knocked it out the park.

I have no Certifications, of my 2 degrees only 1 is directly related to my positions under this company. I started out as a Data Analyst, developing MS Access applications for the company.

I make over 100,000 a year now legally, with no degree (I have military experience though). And I'm a young black dude, still in my 20's, originally from Philly with an ethnic sounding name lol. It's more about your hustle and networking more than anything.

I don't know why you would stop I mean the street life yes, club life I don't see why. I actually was a club promoter/dj/bartending through my early years taught me some of the most greatest skills in life. I met a lot of people I networked with taught me how to hustle.

A good friend of mines actually stepped into a administrator position, when he worked for this contracting company he would come out and fix computer issues etc... then he would get to know all the people at the company and be social able and what not. He ended up convincing them to hire him. From what I noticed in the industry is small companies will usually hire experience (3-5 and more without degree or certs). 2-3 with certs. Bigger companies are were the degree is really needed.
