To ten years for your bachelor's degree yeah he's -- bachelor's degree. Or possibly it's a vocational school or when you're gonna learn a trade where you can make a good living and it may be it's a one or two earlier but do the math on it makes you understand what the cost is -- be over the long -- Not just the tuition but the room and board.

And what's the amount of revenue what's the income you expect to and hope to receive. I receiving medication what's the what does that profession what they earn on average in you've got to take into account changes in technology. Is what I've seen it with a lot of people over the past ten years especially. Is at the time when they got their education the career path they were choosing -- a lot of sense there was a lot of jobs in that particular location and it's either. Been whittled down because it's not as necessary to some type of technology replacing it or. It doesn't pay as much as it used to because it's not as in the -- end. There's a lot of things can change who we are planning ahead and you're looking and education especially if it's one that's going to be fairly costly.

Let them do the math don't do -- -- it's gonna cost you 200000 dollars. Let them come up with a number on the and then let them identified do the research to go 'cause he may be surprised they may say well gosh I want to. I want to go to pharmacy school. On and did they may identify that the income that Baikonur -- going to pharmacy school. May be more or may be less than becoming the veterinarian that they've always wanted to become but they didn't think they can afford veterinarian school.
