Give Yourself a 6 Figure Salary and Pay Off Those Student Loans Quicker

We’re all standing on a goldmine and not everyone knows how to dig for the gold.

Picture this. In 12 weeks you’re a software developer, earning a 6 figure salary, and did not apply to a single student loan.

It sounds almost too good to be true but if you’re interested in learning a skill that will only become more valuable over time then you should keep reading.

Seems like coding bootcamps have been popping up in different places all over the country lately and my favorite by a long mile is App Academy.

In 12 weeks you learn all the skills needed to become a web developer. Their program focuses on intensive and hands-on group based projects.

And here’s the kicker:

You don’t need any prior knowledge of coding!

My favorite part about their website is that they say you need “a tenacity and passion for building cool stuff”.

That’s the most incredible line on their site.

We get so many emails daily from people looking for a purpose in life and wanting to do more than just break even every month. The world is changing at an alarming pace and programs like this are just the tip of an enormous iceberg.

LinkedIn recently published an article that Software Engineering open positions grew 13% in 2017 and are expected to keep growing. So much that it’s one of the 20 most promising jobs of 2017.

Final Thoughts

Talking to the people that make decisions at app academy, they say that not having a college degree comes with it’s own unique challenges when looking for a job but it’s not impossible.

Having a degree of any kind can usually help your case with potential employers and prior experience in technology can certainly go a long way.

Given the current education climate I think it’s worth giving programs like App Academy their fair shot.

I think it’s time people stand up for what’s happening in the world. Students are being taken for a ride and only a select few care to do anything about it.

I’d love to hear your thoughts. Comment below and let me know what you think about App Academy and if you would ever consider doing a 12 week boot camp!
