Contemplating about working for yourself can bring out all sorts of anxieties that pepper questions at you. Questions like, What if I don’t have a college degree?
Do you know how many millionaires today never got a college degree? Some didn’t even finish high school. Mary Kay, the powerful success behind the well-known cosmetics company didn’t let that stop her. She used drive and focus with a focus on her goals and she achieved what she set out to do.
The man behind the movies kids and many adults love and treasure quit high school as a teenage and built Walt Disney into the money maker that it is today. Lack of education won’t make or break you if you set your mind to something and decide that whatever it takes you’re going to do it, then you will reach the success you’re looking for. Those who win are those who fall down but then get back up one more time.
Now and then, all it takes is an idea where others can’t see the possibility. Take Bill Gates for example. He believed enough in what he was doing that he took an unconventional route, said goodbye to college and traded that for life as a billionaire.
You can bet that not everyone got onboard with his dream. Anytime you step out with an idea, a dream or a possibility, there are going to be people who will try to tell you all the reasons it won’t work.
You’ll hear every reason under the sun as to why you should take a more conventional route in life. They’ll tell you to be reasonable or get the education first to have something to fall back on. They don’t believe that your work from home business will succeed. But they don’t have to. The only one who has to be steadfast in believing and knowing it will succeed is you.
That’s not to say that you shouldn’t heed the advice of someone who has been there, done that – because there are some work at home jobs that can break both your bank account and your spirit if you get caught up in them.
