1 2

Ask yourself: is it common knowledge  to know that school does not  prepare you for the real world?

Sure, you can get a good degree, find a decent paying job, work until you retire, and then retire to enjoy the life you’ve deferred for 40+ years. However, that may not prove to be a successful life, a secure life, a financially sound life. A lot will depend on your outlook and your goal. It is important to know this:  College does not totally prepare you  for achieving wealth or becoming an entrepreneur and it downright fails you at teaching you the basics of being successful.

This article helps you identify courses which are the most relevant and helpful to you as a person hoping to become successful and rich.
