    I havent been on alot do to other issues, but I decided to come back on and share something positive and motivating. I always see so many people on here saying that they are quitting school to do marketing or whatever, and I just want to let it be known that I am 100% opposed to that. I figure the best way for me to show my opposition is to lead by example. So here is the deal. I will be 33 years old this year, I never finished high school, and I never obtained my GED. I just enrolled at a dallas area community college, where I will be taking business and marketing classes (to further my own marketing success), and I will be obtaining my GED at the same time. I have been pretty successful in IM, so it is not like I have to do it. The point is that education is still very important, no matter how well you are doing without it. There is always more money to be made, and an education can help you make more money. I will also be taking coding and programming classes aswell as web design. Check the screenshot below

    Now here is my challenge. I challenge other bhw members to do the same thing. And if you are already in school, then I challenge you to stay in school and get that education :)

    If I get to choose, I would say go to a law school.
    Much more practical IMO.

    Oh, and don't worry about all those newbies who talk about quitting school.
    They are mostly just hobo living on welfare without any type of education.
    Any serious business man will know the important of education.
