I don’t want to work for money but I don’t feel much for living in a cardboard box.

I loath the whole concept of money. Having to to work a job where the major motivator is to make money makes me sick to the stomach.

I’m now 27 years old and I have had several jobs mostly in IT and I do oke I've been told I’m fairly good at my job. But every time my boss of a colleague makes a decision where they think of the budget first and then of the people I just HAVE to open my mouth.

I go home everyday dead tired while I have the feeling I haven’t really done anything that matters.

So my question to you fine members of TED:

I want to help people, communities, countries or the entire world if possible and move our society towards a better place.

I have a passion for education I believe its the key towards making the world a better place. But sadly current school systems are generally terrible and everything but inspiring to its students or teachers.

I want to learn, teach and inspire people.

So where do I go or where do I even start? Can anyone recommend me reading material, companies or educational institutions that might fit me?

Or anything at all really any advise is very welcome.

    I feel the exact same way... I think you could start your own start-up...

      If starting my own business is the best way to reach my goals I will.

      But before I can do that I first have to define the scope of my ambitions before I can make that decision.
