I understand your philosophy, however if I am great at something that's dying, then yes I can probably make a decent living, however my potential may be capped. I just want an idea of the sectors/careers that are growing compared to dying.

If we are assuming an economic recession by 2021

Short term career - only fans & tick tock

Tik tok and only fans stars are profitable due to the low unemployment rates and the continuous growth of simps online but it is risky to bet on a get in and get out career without considering the exit opps in the case of burn out or downsizing. Age factor is very important to establishing yourself as a star especially with the groups and demographics that these apps are targeting. This career path is for the hustlers, the guys who are smart, poor and hungry but it is elitist and rarely hires non targets.

Medium length career- Pornhub

This career has been a stable for many interested in videography, photography and making a large amount of cash within a 2-5 year period. Exit opps can be great ( Mia Khalifia) but generally there is a lot of lateralling to other firms such as redtube and youporn however if you stay with this firm you can earn an associate position and be on a md track. The growth of this firm has increased even though they have been under attack from groups such as no nut november and no fap that are growing their presence online through reddit, social media memes and popular websites. Comp is good and with the additon of sponsorships on ig & snapchat you can make big bonuses and it is relatively safe during a recession due to the depressed laid off workers.

concerned about potential work/life balance issues with Pornhub. How much travel is involved? What are the hours? Is it prestigious? Ideally, I'm looking for ~5 hours a day (work from home preferred), not really willing to go to client sites (will they do house calls?). I'd like to be recognized at my University, someone all the guys talk about. Also looking for ~$700,000, plus benefits (free bar/club entry, my own merch, cameraman to snap some pics for the gram.) Is this possible for 0.3 GPA for-profit semi-target gay-white cuckold libtard? my dad once plunged the toilet of a frequent porn user, can I network my way in? if not, I guess I'll just work for a hedge fund or whatever else pops up when i google "highest paying jobs."

Also curious about laterals between these careers. Wouldn't mind seeing emma chamberlein lateral from youtubing to a certain other kind of film-making (think Brazzers/Redtube/BlackedRaw).

Much like how people do a 2 year stint in IB and jump to PE, many of the Tiktok stars are going straight from tiktok to porn. After you've grown your skill and your fan base, you can move that over to the much more lucrative world of Porn.

Glad you brought this up. I currently have a SA
offer for a MM porn site (think JuggsWorld/ RealityKings) But I hear it's a sweat shop and comp is below street (80+ hours, std are rampant, 1 subway sandwich per shoot). If I grind it out for 2 years, is it possible to leverage that experience to break into an EB YT channel (think Vice/JRE)?

gotta be careful with those shops. lots of lean deal teams and not much meat to go around (think gangbang, orgy, etc.) so they might ask u to do a lil guy on guy action. also know it isn't as prestigious- it's def not a BB (Bulging Balls.) More of a 5 inch sweatshop, but still decent if you have no other offers

plz see above

I will create a pitch-book for those interested in these firms when I have time

Tks

There have been a lot of posts the last few days along the lines of "what is the best job/career to go for in today's world.".

As if to imply your career plan should be heavily based on being in the right place at the right time, rather than focusing on what you're good at and what's the best fit for you.

I think that approach is very unlikely to lead to success. If I told you the future is robotics and artificial intelligence, but you were a talented chef, would you give up your talent to go develop robots? Of course not.

Now same example, but let's say you're equally talented as a chef and a programmer. Now it's a no brainer because programming is the growth area, right? I'd still say it's wrong, because there's probably a lot more people chasing that growth area. So demand for programmers is high but so is supply, and your chef talent may be more rare.

The top people in every profession are well paid so I think trying to catch the right wave is a fool's errand. And I haven't even brought up the difficulty of predicting it.

My advice would be figure out what you're good at and if that doesn't guide you enough, then think about which skills are commodities and which aren't. For example there's another thread recently about compensation in quant vs fundamental, and it seems from that thread there's some commoditization of quants. Just an example.

Great insight, thank you

Most of the posts that say you should focus on what you are good at instead of what seems to be trending - are spot on.

Focus on getting the right match quality as explained in the book 'Range' by David Epstein. Try out a few things and find what are you really good at or can be really good at. Try not to force yourself into everytihng but be a generalist.

Instead of thinking about Hedge Funds or PE, why not think about the basic skillsets? Accounting, Modeling, Programming - focus on these three and you will have something good to do with yourself for a considerable amount of time in the future (assuming you are not exceptionally gifted in something else). This is imperative because you don't do hedge funds; you do financial analysis or portfolio management or compliance or IR for hedge funds. Focus on the skills so even when the market is going down for the industry, you can still transfer to something else with the same skills.
