“I believe that college is a great tool for certain individuals but not for all. I myself am not enthusiastic about college because I believe that my work experience equates for what I would learn in a classroom. College is great for receiving training, but if you have been training for all of your life, then I don’t see the benefit. Now I am not saying that you should try to gain knowledge on your profession, because the day you stop learning is the day that you’re old. The world is constantly changing and you should always want to become better at what you are doing.”
