Status income can either be tangible (money) or intangible (respect).
Tangible…all about status income
Academic transcripts that include attendance records are your tangible income (paycheck) from school. A paycheck with earnings is a tangible income from employment. Other tangible income may be travel allowances, or education discounts.
Tangible income is a reward that provides you a better life or opportunities as an independent adult.
Successful people have contributed success to patience and hard work. They do jobs others will not do and take on the task. They are willing to take any job as a first step into a company. They know that worth to the company or organization requires being special. In some jobs like shift work, being on time is critical to the next shift. To move forward, learning is a constant process.
Education or skills are all around you. Check with your local hardware store for classes on home repair that can help you find part time work. Find out what skill classes in school make you employable. A future engineer may benefit from a CAD class. A future CPA needs accounting or math business. Ask your counselor or research what your school district offers.
