Nowadays everyone has a college degree,and the ones who don't have one are usually in the manufactory jobs,like electricians, constructors,sew-women,shop sellers and etc. Did you need a diploma to get a good,or the desired job?

I myself have an associates, bachelors, masters and have recently been selected into a PhD program. Does it really get me anything more than anyone else? Hardly. I am teacher by trade and by economic stadards, I could be easily making 4x more in another field with an equivent level degree. Do you need a diploma? Yep. Do you need a degree? That all depends. I needed one to get into my field of work but if you simply want to become a millionaire or something the other thing that is needed is a simple idea and a way to execute it.

there are so many ideas out there! Just open up your mind and ask questions and you're on your way. I get alot of business ideas just thinking about what I like doing...there is someone out there willing to pay $ for it! Money comes with the idea. There will always be someone looking to catch on to a good idea..and it could very well be yours!

The only degree I got was from the School of Hard Knocks. Couldn't afford to finish college and couldn't get the financing, so I had to quit.

I do have an Associate Degree, however, I haven't ever put it to use. I am bout half way through getting my Bachelor's. But, in order to get the job I have, I didn't need a degree, however it did take hours of training and getting certifications. I'm a wildland firefighter, working for the forestry. So it all depends on the job you want, not all need a degree, however, those are very few.

i guess not everyone is willing to do such a hard work as yours either.. but if u like it, it's great..and u don't even need a degree for it.. and i always said that degrees are useless, the important part is the training they should offer and preparing us for the certain job
