Hello everyone,

Just looking for any tips, im getting out of the military and my dream is to feed people from low income areas while creating enough profit to live frugally with the wife and myself. My question is does anyone have any advice on college related degrees that would benefit me if i want to continue with my dreams. Maybe agriculture related, landscape design, human affairs, i have the GI bill to use so my college is free i just want to use it the best i can

Congratulations, that's a great dream to have and a good situation to be in.

College can be a useful tool, but it does take time, and may not be the best way of getting where you want to go. Just because you have the option doesn't mean you have to use it.

Can you tell us a little bit more about what you'd like to be doing? What subjects or careers are you most interested in? What skills do you already have? Are you looking to settle somewhere rural, or urban? That will help determine which skills and/or certifications are most useful.

Check out City Slickers of Oakland (CA) as an example of the kind of organization you may want to be involved with. Before college, I would start working with an organization that already does the kind of work you're interested in. That will help you narrow down exactly where the gaps are in your knowledge so that you can make every GI dollar count. Good luck!
