In high school, some kids were in the academic program and others were in the trade school program. I was on the “Get me outta here program!” Since they don’t have that major at any colleges, I decided I wouldn’t go. The one of the school counselors said to me, “If you don’t go to college and get a degree, no one will hire you”. This was when I learned that I shouldn’t trust the opinion of someone who has not invested the time to get to know me. And that counselor definitely didn’t know me. I replied, “no disrespect sir, but I will be the one that OWN’s the company!” He laughed and said, “I highly doubt that”.
