Home-schoolers tend to get a bad rap as if they are not as smart as graduates from a local high school. But would you believe that many successful business owners never went to college. They decided to go their own way and start their own business. Many successful people, instead of spending $50k-$100k on a college degree, spent that money on starting their own business. Whether it was a furnace repair company, or a software company, these individual are mostly successful today.
How can a home schooler become so successful? Its because they had no one telling them that they couldn’t be successful because they didn’t’ go to school, or college. Today colleges will tell you that if you do not go, you won’t make a lot of money. I had a high school teacher tell me that if I didn’t go to college I wouldn’t amount to anything. Well I went for 1 year and then dropped out to start my own business. A business that I still have today. A business that is successful and while that teacher is still teaching, I am able to run my business from my home and living the life that I wanted to live.
Never underestimate a home schooled kid! Because that kid could be your boss one day. Instead of wasting time telling someone that they will never amount to anything, why not encourage them to do whatever they wanted. I was fortunate enough to grow up with parents that told me I could do whatever I wanted. Don’t follow the normal path that everyone is told to follow. Create your own path in life and you will be happy.
