Career Advice?

Me again. I need career advice.

Right now I'm doing Mechanical Engineering and I enjoy the concept of it;however, I'm already having to work my ****in *** off to get the math and I know later I'll have problems.

So I'm Thinking of Doing a BS in Managment from UC Merced (where im at right now) and then go on to get my MBA after and also work....

the thing is I want to make like 90k+ a year after like 3-4 years of working and also i was to be around cars SOMEHOW. I mean even managing a Car dealership or An aftermarket business like SonicMS and just manage and make money.

I love working with people and like presenting and talking and stuff like that. so i think managing would be good. Also i don't know if I want to focus on management or marketing or accounting or what.

I DO NOT wanna be in a cubicle 24/7 or a bank just doing numbers, so plz any advice from you guys. I need to know what my options are and how i can get there . also im going to minor in spanish if that helps.....

Just for reference (before you kick the engineering option).... engineers in the oilfield are starting out at or just above 6 figures.... and it goes up from there with only a BACH Deg....
Plus: 30-50% bonus annual
Plus: stock grants
Plus: stock options
Plus: equity in the smaller outfits
Plus: opp to participate in wells in smaller outfits

But you will work your **** off, and if that does not work for you, something else might be better.

All above just for reference...

In general I'd say find what you are at least somewhat passionate about and that also can make a decent living doing....... I do believe if you love what you do, you will not work another day in your life, and you will be rewarded accordingly.

If you play in a casino, it is better to choose proven options. See independent ratings and reviews, for example, I like websites play online casino. I usually choose a casino from the top five.

I was in the same boat. I had been working as a sales manager for a few years but then I decided to change my job and profession and I applied to college. It was the right decision. Now I study CS. Hope next year I'll get a degree.I've already found reviews about best writing services on to help me with my writings.
