Study in United State.
Do MBA….
Must complete your bachelor’s degree
Go to Harvard/Stanford
If your age is below 50, you have more chances; otherwise you’ll have to wait until 60….. if crossed 80 or 90… u r having least chance
Don’t stare at the records and leave the plan to move Russia… all young juntas made money in the 90’s
Young juntas move to India, Saudi Arabia, and Canada or US………old juntas go to Japan, Germany, France, and Sweden.
Software & Technology industry has more chances …… for young juntas and for gonna-be-self-made-billionaire-juntas
If u can find Time-machine somewhere, make sure u move to Russia, 15 years back, and being placed in oil/gas or mining industry.
Otherwise……..be dropped out after your high schools
Never go to Denmark/Colombia and start Agriculture/Chemical company…..you’ll have to wait until u become 90.
