Just about everywhere you go, people tell you “Go to college! Get a degree! Don’t quit! It’s worth it!”
Don’t listen to them! It’s not worth it. At least it wasn’t for me.
I wasted five years of my life going to college, and it’s my biggest regret in life. For me, college was a waste of time, a waste of energy, a waste of money, and a waste of potential.
If I hadn’t gone to college, I would be farther along in my entrepreneurial journey. I would have more businesses, more experiences, and more opportunities to make the world a better place.
Now before you change your life plans and rip up your college application, please understand this. College is good for some people. If you’re training to become a physician or a lawyer, attending college is an essential requirement. Please go to college.
But it’s a different story for entrepreneurs! Ever since I was a kid, my goal has been to be an entrepreneur. College is not requirement for my career ambitions, and I wish I hadn’t gone.
If you are an entrepreneur or want to be an entrepreneur, I wrote this story for you. This is my personal experience. Your situation in life might be different. For what it’s worth, my story may help you to think about college from a different angle, and help you reach your entrepreneurial goals faster.
