ok, this would be for my little brother (23yrs old). This is the guy that is paying his dues. He went to college for 4yrs (which he is paying for cause my family doesnt come from money) and was accepted into the radiology program. Program had a two year wait. So in the mean time he gets a job at the local hospital as a nurse. At the same time my sister who just finished her degree in nursing also gets a job at the same hospital.
Now this is where you see what kind of guy my little brother is. After 3 months the hospital offiers him a position in another department but for a significant pay increase. He thanks them for the offer but his passion is radiology and knows he will be starting that program next year. So he tells them that his sister also works in the hospital and that she really is deserving of this type of promotion. They agree and she gets it.
Now he works his full time, shares an apartment with my sister who covers what ever he cant and continues to keep his head up, has never asked me for a dime and is just one of those guys.
I talk about snowboarding all the time and there is a hill right by where they live now that I plan to hit alot this year, and it would be great if I could get him out there. He doesnt get out much as you can expect.
So there's what I would do.
