I favor speaking up in all kinds of situations, but a college classroom isn't a good one, in my opinion. The other kids don't care what you have to say and resent you for speaking, and the professor can make your life miserable. Marcelo Guadiana, a senior at UMass Boston and treasurer of the Young Americans for Liberty chapter there, begs to differ.

Steve Clayton has guts. He held a top position at Labcorp, where you've likely gone if you needed blood work done. Hundreds and hundreds of people reported to him, and he earned a fortune. But one day he decided: I hate everything about this job, and I refuse to do it one moment longer. So he left.
 
Eventually, Steve went into eCommerce, and began building 7-figure online stores that he can run from wherever he is in the world. He's one of the world's foremost experts on eCommerce, and in particular how the little guy can create an online store as an additional income stream.
