If you could travel back in time...

...and give yourself as an 18 year-old one bit of advice what would that be?

Save independently; don't put any money into pension funds or endowment policies. If you see a horse with the unlikely name of “Red Rum” back it. Roll eyes Roll eyes

The harder you work the less they appreciate you. Save yourself the hassle and go on benefits.

I'd tell myself to enjoy my youth and stop fretting about wanting to look older. And tell myself not to believe boys. And spend more time with my Nan Smiley

Re: If you could travel back in time...

I would say "go with the flow" and don't try to change anything at all....you will enjoy yourself once again.
It may sound trite but that's just what I would want ...to allow events to shape my future  and then be as content as I am right now.

Learn an artisan  trade ( Electrician, plumber, carpenter, or even gardening)  that you can do independently ... so that no matter what job you get/got/had you always have your trade to fall back on, and earn some money.

Re: If you could travel back in time...

So you could set up a small car repair business..... or specialise in small industrial repair work... (such as gates/fences/security)..... or even do some "artististic" type welding sculptures, that could be worth a few hundred pounds.  Wink

Re: If you could travel back in time...

Welders generally dislike laying under cars being dripped on with molten burning under-body sealer.
Decent equipment can be quite expensive.
