To be ‘educated’ is to be indebted
I dropped out of college feeling like I hadn’t learned anything by my third year. I have basically no loans, and own my own successful business now doing what I love. Despite my family’s disapproval at the time, I’m positive I chose wisely.
Your go-to-college-to-be-successful standard is basically bullshit.
If everybody goes to college, a college degree becomes meaningless. Do something to demonstrate that you are dedicated and skilled and you will likely make success for yourself.
