3: You will NOT make $90,000 a year right out of high school.

4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: opportunity.

6: If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes – learn from them.
