Earning $100k or getting a honours degree is not stopping me from starting me own business. However, many would feel that I have wasted my education. They ask, why do I need to study so much if I am going into entrepreneurship? Have I wasted my technical knowledge and wasted my last 8 years of working experience?
I don’t think so.
Education has prepared me with enough concepts and theory and that allowed me to self-study for other online course I like. With the fundamentals taught in school, I can read through online materials easily and grasp concepts with just any online search. I do not expect education to teach me to be open to failures, to give me concrete plans and ideas on how to earn profits. Those ideas come from me but the implementation does require education in order to keep it going.
Not just that, my work …
