Consider that they can:

There are many good books that compare the traditional career path with a more progressive and contemporary approach to working and life.
One of the better known is Robert Kiyosaki’s bestseller Rich Dad, Poor Dad which not only covers this subject, but primarily offers highly valuable and very practical solutions to creating and managing financial wealth.
A key message in his book is that one is never too young to begin building an asset base (he started at about 15) so that one is in a position to identify and jump at opportunities when they come along.
Doing a basic crew course at PYT is probably one of the best springboards to do so. Within a year, one can have qualified, learnt new life and social skills, developed and matured, earned enough to pay for one’s tuition, flown home on holiday and saved enough to buy one’s first property or start a small business.
Not to mention that all this is being achieved in some of the most popular and glamorous destinations around the world, in a highly respectable industry!
In the meantime, one’s peers will have completed only one year of tertiary education.
