    Hi BHW,
    I just asked myself what your level of education is,
    what did/do you study, in which subjects you were/are
    good and bad and in what kind of society you grew up.

    I come from Germany and I live on a farm that my father
    owns with ~247.1 acre land and 100 cows but I won?t
    continue it. I am really good at math 14 points (15 max)
    (~A) and business studies 12points (~B+). This year I will have
    Abitur (highest possible educational attainment after 13 years).
    I taught myself coding and I will study math and/or maybe
    computing science. My problem is that I am only average
    in languages.

    Well thats me. What about you?

    I did, HORECA < Hotel, restaurant and cafe) entrepreneur/management.
    Then when i was done with that i got my bachelor Financial management.
    Worked for a bank after that for like 6 months. Quit because everybody is there was soulless slave/douche.
    And am now happily doing full time IM.

    I'm good at visual marketing, and setting up customer profiles.
    And i do rather well with numbers.
    I suck at languages because i'm dyslectic.
    Despite that "disability" i do know dutch offcourse.
    Plus English , French and German because they are mandatory on schools here.
    Although English is the only language i can write.

    I live in the hart of Amsterdam. I'm 6.6 feet tall.
    And i wear my penis on the left side.lol

    How does one be a CPA?
    Or is it also a profession?

    Also will soon have BEng in Chemical Engineering.

    I wonder how this is going to help me in IM??...
    Oh yeah an aptitude for things that follow set rules and guidelines and also a lonely life in front of a computer. :(

    At least the groundwork is laid for my career in IM :)

    13 degrees (and that's not a joke) in the arts, psychology and business including 2 Masters, an MBA, and an Honorary Doctorate - I guess I just liked collecting letters after my name - started aged 13 and stopped (for the time-being, at least) aged 32. No, I was not a normal child.

    I just barely passed kinder garden. Had to go to summer school. Dropped out in 3rd grade. Teachers said I had a bad attitude.

    No really, I went to College at Penn State University for 7 years, and have about 12 credits to graduate. I was like Van Wilder. Then I had the bright idea to join the military. Whoops. Got out and never finished. At this point it makes no difference, because I can make in a day what I would have been making in a month with a sociology degree.

    I got tossed out of Rutgers University my freshman year 35 years ago and have only
    been on campuses to see my son's graduate college.

    Some of you guys have some real education... nice.

    I can sell real well, own 2 brick and mortar businesses that I have others run for me
    and I spend my time between my two homes in Florida... one on the Atlantic and one on the Gulf.

    I guess I didn't really need that education after all.

    20 w/ Business Admin Diploma & working on a marketing degree.

    Mostly doing it to meet people and have some credibility so no doors in the future will be closed. Also, Marketing both online and offline is something I can see doing for the rest of my life! It's fun, allows you to be creative, and have a life of whatever you want. I cant see any problem with that!

    Honestly I think the amount of $ you make now and in the future isn't really about what degree you have or your level of education. Its your attitude and ability to motivate yourself to get what you really want.

    If anyone's like me feel free to send me a pm.
    I'm looking for some people in the Toronto Area with the same mindset.

    Cheers!
