    im making a feature documentary based on the idea that college is unnecessary (and detrimental in a lot of cases) to living an exceptional life. im looking for people who're kicking ass without diplomas or who are still in high school. do you know any? are you?

    please pm me! thanks!

    Cool idea.

    I'm sure a lot of people here are banking without college. They just don't want to reveal their niche.

    im not looking for those kind of details. i want to show people that it's possible to thrive without a diploma.

    there will likely be only one internet marketer represented in the film. thanks ray!

    Yeah that's a cool idea. I also believe college is not only unnecessary for success, but it can sometimes hinder you from achieving success. (Coming out $xx,xxx in debt?)

    Obviously everyone has their own opinions on it and I know that's not what this thread is for so I won't go into it anymore.

    But to answer your question, I never went to a day of college in my life and I think I'm doing well for myself. I'm sure a lot of other people here on the forums are also doing well without a college degree.

    Here's an interesting article you should check out: http://www.youngentrepreneur.com/blog/100-top-entrepreneurs-who-succeeded-without-a-college-degree/

    Just look at some of the names on there...

    If they didn't need college, that kinda proves the whole point right there.

    College is training. You don't train leaders.

    Funny thing, that is exactly what they taught in college business classes before I dropped out. They point out that most of the truly self built highly successful ceo's were drop outs. The ones who get "hired" to the job are educated.
