Valerie, one of my clients went ahead and said “to be educated you don’t have to sit in class but it can be obtained from anywhere like Google, from friends’ mistakes or achievements”. She also mentioned a term “streetwise” which actually sounded so creative to me.
She went ahead saying that someone could come from the streets yet be even better informed than the one who is on their way to obtain a degree or a masters.
According to my personal belief, education is good but I consider it a plan B, only something to back on in case your talent or your purpose to live does not seem to be successful during your life journey.
Not all of the knowledge obtained I got to use but most of it I am now starting to see that it is helpful here and there in a lot of areas of my business and life as well.
