He explained that it was a song but I still thought that it was a nutty thing to say, even in a song.
You do need an education. I know. You don’t want to go back to school. But it may be your ticket into a new, more profitable career.
To ignite your fire, I will give it to you like this: Information is education and Information is everywhere. Educating yourself may not be in a college classroom. The internet is full of information…free information and so is the public library.
Google (Or Search)
Open a Google search page and type in something you want to know more about and you get links. You can read articles that will provide you with ideas, you can then Google individual ideas and before you know it, you are educating yourself. Of course you cannot trust everything on the internet because it may be completely incorrect or misleading. My advice is to use common sense.
YouTube has like a cajillion videos on anything you want to be explained in a video tutorial fashion. There is lots of junk but there is just as much information (you have to become a nifty sifter).
Inexpensive, Quick, & Dirty
There are companies who have devoted themselves to creating quick and dirty courses on just about anything. There is usually a monthly fee which gives you access to every course they have available. You get video instruction that you can view whenever you want. There is no time limit. There is no limits on what you can learn.
I believe in education both formally and informally. I only mention informally to remind you that a classroom is just one place. If you are curious about a subject, seek it out. Becoming more knowledgeable is your responsibility.
Degrees are wonderful and are especially important where they are especially important. However, in the rest of the world, its about what you know how to do and how you can use that to 1.)Save someone money 2.) Make someone money 3.) Or provide someone a service.
So the question is not "How many degrees do you have?" but "What do you know?"
