This is irresponsible. Not everyone will make it like that. People who drop out of school are more likely to end up homeless than like Bill Gates.
Not necessarily there is free information too access almost anything you want to know. Without going to school. Majority of millionaires are not college educated.
Hook me up with some IT boot camps and resources and I’ll gladly do that
This is so-so advice granted some people come up without college BUT some others come up with it... not everyone gonna be a zuckerberg dropping out of college
you're more likely to be homeless than a millionaire by not going to school. Income statistics back this up. All that free information shyt you just said is still available if you go to school...
Even if that statistic you said is true, that the majority of millionaires aren't college educated, the majority of people aren't millionaires.
Edit: That statistic you said about majority of millionaires not being college educated is false
It’s true but the thing I realize most people lack is work ethic and drive. Someone who’s eager to quit school usually doesn’t have enough of either. If you’re motivated to quit school because you’re so driven by your own plans then I’d say go for it but most dropouts I know are too lazy to take advantage of the resources you’re naming
Why the Myth of the College-Dropout Billionaire Is So Enticing
Let's not even get into why thought processes like this are harmful to the black community especially to people who are convinced these people got it out the mud or by their bootstraps on pure effort alone. Everyone had help and/or got lucky in some way to get to where they are at. An education is statistically correlated with higher income and wealth ascertainment. Stop listening to these fake ass gurus with survivorship bias trying to sell you some program or teach you how to get rich.
Folks aren't equally bright, driven or resourceful.
Some people require structure/more hand holding for a shot at a decent life. School is the best solution for most.
And that’s why most people think it’s impossible.
Bill Gates got better education and connections by the time he was 7 than most Americans.
It depends people that self teach themselves shyt all the time. My chick took general business in school and now is in an IT role with hardly any experience.
I don't care how smart or dumb you are you have to play by societies rules in order to have a decent life and that means finishing school and getting a degree. Take that stability and do what you want after that.
Even IT bootcamps aren't great for Black folks. A lot of us need more just to get in
What does she do? It's something about these Mfs on Say Cheese like Bandman Kevo that automatically give me scammer/capper Vibes
