To College Degree or Not to College Degree - That is the question

I couldn't state it any better than this guy.

I took a few college courses in the military with the idea I might try to get a degree. Very quickly I got the impression that the point of the classes was learning the professor's opinion on things rather than any real knowledge. Not just the professors I had, it seemed like the entire exercise of college. I decided against it and today I own my own company and do quite well. Some careers need a college education. Most do not. Just go out and do it. It's the best teacher.

My thoughts:
Being an expert at something can be an individually learned thing or a collectively learned thing. In a FREE nation - YOU CHOOSE!!:thumbsup::clap:

I debated whether or not to go to college. One sucessful business man told me that you may not need college, but you will learn skills and knowledge that will get you ahead of the competition if you attend college. I know that it has helped me with running my business. I understand a lot more about accounting and marketing that would have taken me years to learn outside of college.
