What College Students Fear The Most
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Recently I've come across an article in my local newspaper taken from "The Los Angeles Times". There was a study done (I don't remember by who) on what college students fear the most. The answer may surprise you. In years past, the study found that the major concern was whether or not they would get into the college of their choice.

Fast forward a year and the study found out that the major concern for college students was "how am I going to pay off student loans?"

That's not a normal concern I would think that college kids have these days. I would think they would be worried about passing their classes or that they wouldn't be socially accepted. Something more normal for someone in their late teens to early twenties.

Maybe they're realizing that being in debt right out of college isn't what they had envisioned even if they get a good job afterwards. That's no way to start your future.

Our society has a trained us to believe that if we go to college, we can get a good job and be successful in life. That is true for some but not all. There are many people with degrees working at Mconald's or some other menial job.

What truly makes one successful financially is their spirit of entrepreneurship, not necessarily how smart they are.

Some people who didn't go to college or dropped out early: Richard Branson (owner of the Virgin brand), Simon Cowell, Wally Amos (Famous Amos cookies), Steve Jobs, Michael Dell, Walt Disney, Henry Ford and Bill Gates.

And that's just a small list.

Now I'm not telling you not to go to college, but I am telling you that there is a way to be an entrepreneur while you attend. A way to help pay off the student loan when you're finished.

By the time you get out of college, you could have a nice little sum to help start paying off that debt.

Instead of partying all the time ( I know it will be hard) you could start studying how to start your very own business online. Affiliate marketing is a great way to go. There is a great community of online marketers out there that will help you learn to do just that.

Everyone needs support when first starting out, it really does make the difference between success and failure! Nobody ever became successful without some kind of support. Online business is no different!

This just could help take the fear out of paying back those never ending student loans.
