Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

The difference is what happens to you if you do fail. THAT is the point. Luck is when your business goes tits up but your daddy absorbs the impact and you can keep the Ferrari and the bling, and blithely move on to your next spiffy idea for a business.

No rich daddy and you are up to your neck in brown and smelly reality.
Interestingly when I decided to leave school at 16, my parents wanted me to carry on with my education so I could have something to fall back on. Personally the last thing I wanted was the option to fail.
