Ok, in another forum, a chick asked what we all had for college education. So over 230 replies have been posted to her post. As I read through this, from an entrepreneurial point of view - i began wondering how important is college education, really? I went, I have an Associate's Degree in business - but that didnt guarentee me anything - and when i went to pursue it - i got the same ole line "you dont have enough experience" -So i went to college, and am in debt up to my eyeballs - and i can't get a job to pay for it, because im not experienced? I can have a degree, but i must need the experience to get the job - how do you get experience, if they wont hire you??
Then I look at it on the other end, you basically bought yourself a ticket, that holds you at a little/much better status for the working world - but as an entrepreneur, i know what that means. It means - 45 years of working for someone else's success and freedom and time. What job are your truly working for yourself? Granted there are certain jobs that are needed in this world - doctors, nurses, miners, factory workers - in order to take care of us, make stuff, etc. (i can see those type of jobs needing a degree -- but even still they do not guarentee anything either) Even doctors dont have time or financial freedom - ive been seeing this first hand with the ones turning to entrepreneurialship - leaving their practices/hospitals/clinics.
But honestly -- do you really think that college education is THE most important/vital thing to have and do? And how do you feel about the big $$$ colleges are making - especially during the economy crash? Have you noticed any schools complaining?? NO - why? because they are pushing college education - people lose their "stable" jobs, and now have to pursue a different career.
I can go on and on and on -- but i will stop here, and continue to add as we go. Let's fire it up ladies!!
