I have to say that inspired by Robert Kiyosaki and due to my Gemini/ dual nature I followed both paths – traditional and non traditional learning and I have to say that as an entrepreneur things are really different from what I was tought that they could be. NY Times published recently an article regarding this. You can dind it here. This is the most important paragraph from the whole article:
“Talent can come in so many different forms and be built in so many nontraditional ways today, hiring officers have to be alive to every one — besides brand-name colleges. Because “when you look at people who don’t go to school and make their way in the world, those are exceptional human beings. And we should do everything we can to find those people.” Too many colleges, he added, “don’t deliver on what they promise. You generate a ton of debt, you don’t learn the most useful things for your life. It’s [just] an extended adolescence.”
Learning is a non-stop process for as long as we are alive and purely comes in different forms. We just need to be eager to learn and of course, to apply!
