    College degree is to educate and not to earn money basically. But people who earn without a degree are differently abled persons.

    I honestly feel like people think that a college degree equals a high paying job, this simply is not the case. There are a handful of major that I can think of where this MAY be true, and even then there is no guarantee. Medical doctors, engineers, lawyers (to an extent), veterinarians, and a few others are really the only ones where I would say you are really guaranteed a quality job. I am not surprised when people are successful without a college degree these days, mainly because affordable colleges are really a new thing. More and more students are able to go to college now than ever before. People were successful before this. Bill Gates, for example, dropped out of college. I find that people who are good "business minds" usually are so, long before college.

    So many people are turning to online businesses these days.  Degrees are necessary in order to take national board exams and be able to practice in many professions.  But it's increasingly simple to have an online business or service and make lots of money without a degree.  I guess it really depends what you're interested in.

    education is needed but it is also way over rated. people seem to want too much education and i honestly believe it's partially because they don't want to work hard to make a living. we don't need university to become wealthy but if you ask an educator they will make it seem like your life will be terrible without it. the irony is i make more money then most educators and i don't have a high education.

    As much as I really want to go on without a degree and just create my own business empire, I do not think that will happen.
    Without capital, it's all a dream.
    Where to get the capital? Work hard for years and save, save, save!
    How to get a decent job that pays well? Earn a degree (or MBA or PhD).
    It still comes down to the degree in my case. smile

    I personally don't believe a degree to become successful. That said, I do think that university life helps build strong character.
