Scrooge McDuck Is Dead (DuckTales Lessons)

Scrooge McDuck is dead! He neither quacks nor walks like a duck any longer.  The voicScrooge McDuck Is Deade of Scrooge McDuck, Alan Young, died last Thursday.  He was 96 and died in Woodland Hills, California.  Baby Boomers may remember Young as Wilbur Post, the mild-mannered architect with a talking horse on the unlikely 1960s sitcom, Mr. Ed.

But younger listeners like us will remember the English-born comic actor as the voice of Scrooge McDuck on DuckTales.

Scrooge McDuck Is Dead

Scrooge McDuck was a childhood hero to us and there is a ton you can learn from his character.  First, we pay our respects to Mr. Young and then we get into what DuckTales and Scrooge McDuck meant to us and what lessons aspiring Six Figure Teens can get from the show.

We decided to devote this very special episode of Six Figure Teen to the late Alan Young and the immortal cartoon Duck he gave his voice to.  We will break down a few segments from the iconic series, teaching the lessons that were so generously passed onto us, lessons long forgotten by modern society and an ignorant generation.  We hope these principles and the man who voiced them might not be forgotten, but rightfully achieve our appreciation, admiration and respect.

The Series is the new home for young people that want a better and faster method for getting working.  The job skills, entrepreneurial know-how and ultimately the income they want is possible without college.

Rap Video Life PlanA Six Figure income really is possible before you hit 20.  Its still possible even if you woke up in your mid 20’s and realized you just went into debt for a worthless degree.  This can be accomplished as an employee, a freelancer, an entrepreneur,  or contractor.  The reality is that its easier to accomplish this as a teenager than as a debt-laden college grad.

Think about it, many entrepreneurial ventures can be started with very little capital.  What kills a lot of entrepreneurs is there personal need for cash.  Many are paying for high living expenses and personal debt (such as student loans).

Teens are actually in the best position to take unpaid internships, start small entrepreneurial ventures and just generally experiment in the marketplace.

THE PROBLEM: no one is telling them this. THE SOLUTION: Six Figure Teen!
