The REAL Reason I Dropped Out Of College…


– Hey, everyone. It’s me, Sarah here from Wholesale Ted, one of the largest YouTube channels dedicated to giving you actionable advice on how to build a real
money-making business. And today, this month’s
storytime video is all about why I went to college and
what cataclysmic event made me drop out. Now I can imagine that a lot
of my subscribers are surprised that I went to college at all, because you see, when I was 16, I was running my first
successful online business, a video game store. Yep, most of my high
school friends earned money by working at the local
supermarket, packing groceries, and collecting supermarket trolleys for five to eight hours
each day on the weekends, whereas I had a much nicer gig importing secondhand video games direct from dealers in the USA and reselling them in my online store. I was having $100, $200,
sometimes even $300 days. My parents had been small
business owners themselves, and so they were really excited and supported me in my business ventures. Encouraged, I kept this business going all throughout high school. Towards the end of my senior year, I had a big choice to make. Would I go to college,
which here in New Zealand we call university, or would I skip it? I made what I thought was
a no-brainer decision. “So,” I excitedly announced
as I gathered my parents in our kitchen, “I’ve been able to build “a successful business
while also juggling classes “and exams. Just imagine
how much I could scale it “if I could focus 100% on it. “I’ve decided not to go to college “and to instead focus on my store.” I paused, waiting for a
round of praise and applause. My parents looked at each other. (laughter) – [Parent] Oh, no, no no. You’re not serious, right? – Well, uh, yeah. And so what do you think I did? Stand my ground? Tell them that it’s my life, not theirs, and that getting a degree
made no sense for me? Of course not. The very next day, I
signed up for college. A Bachelor of Liberal Arts
and Humanities, no less. A degree choice which
may surprise some of you, but don’t worry. I’ll explain why I chose it later. I really shouldn’t have
been surprised though by my parents’ reaction,
because as I’ve shared before on this channel, their business
had fallen on hard times, so they’d seen the darker
side of entrepreneurship. And so they told me to do
what they’d always been told growing up, “Play it safe. Go the college. “That will get you a good
job, no matter the degree.” But here’s the dirty little
secret of higher education. Increasingly, that pathway
doesn’t work like it used to. Today, there are more than
double the number of students enrolled in college in the
USA than there were in 1970. And it’s not just the USA; it’s global. In the UK, 19% of school graduates in 1989 went on to college. In 2016, it was 47%. And in Australia, there are nearly twice as
many college students enrolled than there were in 1996. The results are a classic
example of supply and demand. As supply for graduates has gone up, competition for skilled, high-paid jobs has dramatically increased, and the average rewards
for going to college are becoming less and less. As a result, in 2012, more than
half of graduates in the USA were either unemployed or working in a job that
didn’t need their degree. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise then that the price to go to college is rising eight times faster than wages, as graduates are increasingly
going into low-paid jobs. The average new graduate
comes out of college with a debt of $29,800 that follow then around
for an average 21 years. And while not quite the crisis of the USA, it’s getting worse in the UK. In 2012 in the UK, one-third
of graduates were in jobs that didn’t use their degrees. And in Australia, the average
weekly wage for new graduates shrunk from $946 in 2006 to $791 in 2013 as the number of students who found full-time postgraduate work dropped from 85% to 73%. Of course, it’s worth noting that some degrees fared better than others. 79.4% of Engineering students found work, compared to just 53.2% of Creative Arts and 64.3% of Humanities graduates. Yes, I’ll tell you now it’s the same situation in New Zealand, and our colleges love
advertising these degrees without disclosing the job numbers. So you might be thinking, “Ah, so that’s why Sarah quit. “She did Humanities, a useless degree. “She chose the wrong one. “Why didn’t she pick
Engineering or Computer Science “or a STEM degree?” Ah, good question. But you know what? I 100% believe that I
made the right choice. You see, those degrees had
classes with attendance credits. Roll call would be taken for each class. Be there or be square. But my philosophy and history papers, as long as you submitted your
essays and passed your exams, you were fine. So I picked courses I had
enough knowledge of already so that I could skip
classes yet still pass. And I could then spend
my free time working on, surprise, surprise, my business. I did once make a mistake though. I signed up for The Middle
East During The Middle Ages. As a history nerd, I thought, this is going to be a piece of cake. So I attended my first lecture to write my exam and essay dates, and all was going well until
my professor announced, “So I’m now gonna put you
all into small groups.” (dramatic sting) “Each week, you’re gonna
meet with your group “and discuss that week’s
class reading assignment. “I will be hosting each meeting, “and it is very important that you attend “because 25% of your grade
will be based on attendance.” Oh, no, no. What have I done? We were all given the first
week’s reading assignment. It was 20 long pages with
tiny text, and I was like, there is no way I’m gonna read this. I am sure no one else will read it either. It’ll be fine. So I walked up to my small
group class, and you know what? Everyone had read it except for me. The professor went through
the 20 pages chronologically. For each page, she’d ask
the class a question. Everyone had to answer one question each. If no one raised their hand to answer, she’d pick someone that hadn’t
answered a question yet. Everyone in the class was able
to answer theirs except me. She was not impressed. I went home defeated that day. I couldn’t read 20 pages each week. That was gonna take forever. I didn’t have time for that. So I sat down and I came up with a plan. The next week, right before class, I read the first page of
our reading assignment. And like clockwork, the
professor asked a question about page one at the
start of the session, and before anyone had a chance, my hand shot up. She picked me, and I
answered her question, and she was very, very
impressed at how eager I was. And that’s how I passed that class. I just read the first page
of each reading assignment and made sure that I always
answered the first question. Now I’m not saying that
if you’re watching this and you’re in college
that you should do that, but the reason why I did that was because even though I gave in and went to college because
everyone was telling me that I should do that, I
still never bought into it. Because here’s the thing. The people who are the most
successful in life got there not by copying others, but by coming up with new ideas
and thinking for themselves. But college teaches you to
do the opposite of this. It asks you to read the book assignments and regurgitate and copy other people. It teaches you to obey, not create. And perhaps even worse than
this, as I came to realize, the very nature of college
conditions students into thinking that the correct
way to make money in life is to exchange your time for money, rather than have your money work for you. Remember how I said that I dropped out? Yeah. You see, like usual, I had left
my 2,000-word history essay until the last minute. I had two days to write it and get it in. But I also had a stack of new video games that I wanted to list online in my store. I couldn’t do both. There simply wasn’t enough time. Hmm. I could choose to spend my
time writing my history paper. If I do that, I’ll make no
money, but I will pass my class. But if I instead choose
to list my games for sale, those games will make me money. With that money, I can hire someone to write my history essay for me. And actually, I’ll make so much money that I’ll be able to outsource all of my history essays for the year. Not only will I make money, but I’ll also pass my history class and regain a bunch of time that I would have spent writing essays and use that to again
make even more money. Pleased with this plan, I went onto Google and started looking up
essay-writing services, and as I started writing an email to the one that looked the best,
I had a sudden realization. Wait a minute. In the academic world,
unlike the business world, this isn’t considered smart. This is considered cheating. And so would you believe
that the very next day, I finally went and dropped out of college. My mindset was just far
too removed from college. A lot of people told me that
I was making a big mistake. “You’ve taken a lot of classes. “It would be a waste to not finish it now. “you’ll wish you did later.” Well, as a self-made millionaire
now, I can safely say that I’m glad that I didn’t
fall for that sunk-cost fallacy because I have absolutely
100% zero regrets. So yes, I didn’t want to do
what came naturally to me and cheat, and so I thought
the best thing for me to do was genuinely to drop out. I know that my opinions on college might be a little bit controversial, so let me know what you think
in the comments section below. And if you’re like me and you do not like the
nine-to-five life at all and you want to start your own business but you don’t know how, then you should be sure to

Online Stores Follow “to Make Over $10,000 a Month,” and you’ll find a link

  6. EPIC50CAL says:

    Hello Sarah,

    Thank you for all the info you have given. I’m in the Club and just finished my website and Facebook ad. Would you please review my store. GeekedUps.com

    Thank you,

  7. Beyond Beth says:

    Self made millionaire!!! I’m a recent grad and this 9-5 life is miserable lmao. It works for some people but I’m quickly realizing I’m not one of them. You give me hope. Yess girl!!!!

  8. Shekaran Jag says:

    No… Your opinion on college is not at all controversial… Only 2 type of people ask you to study a subject:

    1) who genuinely like that subject
    2) who like to settle down

  9. fens tv says:

    Sara back again with another amazing video. I just love how much you have helped me and many people learn so much from your life. You are truly a great person and have a really fun personality i really love you content great job!

  10. Jose Amador says:

    I just love you young lady

  11. Csisz_Zsolt says:

    Your animations are really-really enjoyable and the story is encouraging. 🙂

  12. Ramon Scheepers says:

    Got a degree, worked for 9 years, was miserable. Worked on my own online store for a year and had to shut it down. Learnt a lot! Hope my next store will be better😀

  13. German Egyptian Couple says:

    Hi Sara, first of all I want to say that I eagerly watch all your newly released videos since you have a wonderful unique way of teaching! To be more specific: So clear and easy to understand, I love that, and you encourage me to maybe follow in your footsteps someday! 🙂

    I do understand your opinion about college, although I loved studying my favorite field natural science. However I did drop out as well because of the reason you named: we are not taught to be creative. And I wanted to be a creator. Everybody has his reason and you just chose the best option for yourself, which is exactly what everybody should do, instead of being driven by a common opinion that just doesn't suit to everyone.

    And in the end you did what made you happy, so keep it up this way 🙂 You are a true role model in my opinion!

  14. King illusionist says:

    Same story with me… I am in college about to drop out soon with $500+/day as of now

  15. Verified says:

    what about business school?

  16. Stan Muller says:

    I went to a tech institute instead and finished it. That was a mistake as it lead me down a path I came to hate.
    The Good news is that I later found another career path that cost me as little as $100 per month the first 3 years and has earned me 6 figures annually ever since.
    Now I’m working on turning it into a business.

  17. Dustin Sanders says:

    I went to college, got a BS, got the job, paid off the MASSIVE student loan debt, hate the job, long for freedom.

    I'd rather pay the price of learning to be an entrepreneur than paying $80k to learn to be somebody's employee!!!

  18. munay min says:

    moral of the story, don't go to college kids if you want to be rich.

  19. Joseph Velasquez says:

    Yeah! Exactly my thoughts as well. Was going to college for computer science but then dropped out. As of now I’m selling on eBay so I can get enough capital to start drop shipping. Anybody got an opinion on the cheap shipping fiasco with China?

  20. DjArmedWolf says:

    I am currently in college and going into a degree i like.. BUT I still don't like the idea of a 9 – 5 shift. That is extremely boring and I always HATED going into an office to work…. I am extremely excited to dropship and hope it works!

  21. Crypto Poussin says:

    For 1 like you who succeed, how many failed and went on the market without diplomas ? It makes me thinking of all the poker players who went on Thailand to make fortune with poker easy gains without high expenses instead of studying, now being broke and coming back to their country with no bagage… I agree with your "Kiosaki" like mood but not so easy to make money working for you indeed. At the end the best is for the beginning to have a diploma and a 9 to 5 job, then to work the evening to start your business aside. If it works quite enough you go to your 9 to 5 job without headache.

  22. Joaquin Oldan says:

    Well I got an engineering degree, absolutely loved getting it, and got a "good paying"@ job right out of college. But I don't like this job and here I am. Learning how to ecom…. sooooo, who knows what is best for whom?

  23. Cas and Make Up says:

    Dropped out with zero regrets 👍🏻💕 go team!

  24. Ben Arkell - Passive Income Automation says:

    I wish I had spent all of the time I did in college (7 years – undergrad and MBA) on learning to build an online business.

  25. Boi says:

    7:27 this is so true it makes me feel bad im in college

  26. Renan Colombini says:

    I think you're right, I did drop out of college as well and couldn't be happier

  27. Matt says:

    love these animation vids !

  28. 420 says:

    tell us the real reason why you make youtube videos 😉

  29. Entertainment 101 says:

    Too bad i ended up in biomedical Engineering all the courses are mandatory attendance you either attend or say goodbye to the right to take the final exams it is too messed up i had to take a 6 month break now the break is almost over and in a few weeks back to hell it is.
    Thank you for making this video

  30. loud fast says:

    another solid video. btw i think you are a total natural in front of the camera. Cheers!

  31. Entertainment 101 says:

    This video was perfect to say the least

  32. Steven Prince says:

    Awesome Sarah!!!💥 This reminds me of the way I graduated High School. After failing a statewide math test five times in a row by mere points(which was the only thing holding me back from graduating) I decided to exchange brains with someone that was having the exact same issue but with an english state wide test. So I offered him the opportunity to trade brains and since the substitute teacher did not know who was who on the day of the exam; I went as Ivan (his name) to take the english exam that he had failed several times and Ivan went as me to another classroom to take my math exam. I was thinking like the banks…banks leverage money and we were leveraging brains. I realized all I needed was basic math and most importantly percentages (not trigonometry or algebra)And so we both graduated.🎓 Boom!💥
    Great story Sarah thank you for sharing and I love the animation!❤️

  33. dracobluelol says:

    Listening to your stories of beating the odds and progressing freely without restriction gives me a great soothing feel. Thanks for sharing your story.

  34. Joel Cole says:

    Son number one is a computer engineer, with patents for his inventions. He attended college for one-and-a-half terms.
    Son number two manages projects for a very well-known Seattle-based software company. He attended no college.
    Me? I have a college degree in business organizations and have never used it. I worked for 22 years as a journalist and have been a freelance consultant for the past 30 years.

    College degrees are so important, don't you think?

  35. Bl Rivers says:

    This term " College Dropout" has always been perplexing to me in that one is not mandated or required to go to college like in elementary or high school. In college, you can only attend if you somehow pay for it, so to be a dropout to me is a mis label. To me you simply decided to stop going. Like me when I sign up for a gym membership for a year and two weeks in stop going, am I a "gym membership drop out" considering, like with college, I can go back when ever I want, as long as I pay, hummmm….

  36. MrJustDIY says:

    I dropped out of school but before I did I had teachers telling me I'd never amount to anything, but with that being said I had days I'd make $125 an hour running my own handyman business and to this day I still run my own business an I'm my own boss. I now work from my computer and out of my small engine repair shop fixing things and making youtube videos plus selling on eBay

  37. loge99 says:

    Wellll, but where’s the money ur making now?

  38. Putin did nothing wrong. says:

    Will you do a video on ebay dropshipping?

  39. loge99 says:

    Yeeee you a millionaire

  40. Putin did nothing wrong. says:

    I love these kind of videos when you talk about how your choices you made as a kid amounted to you becomming successful because im an aspiring young entrepenuer myself (15 btw) but might i ask, what age did u start your computer games buisiness, was it 16 or 15?

  41. Robert Collins says:

    Thanks for great advice !

  42. Navid Mohammadzadeh says:

    Agree with every single sentence. Greaaaaaaate👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

  43. Tico david says:

    Congrats really. Nowadays people go teach in vietnam and china to pay student debts in the usa. Bigger salaries low cost if living. Hell paperwise. I was raised by my grandps until i was 7. He always said what can be translated into english as..f* those teachers with their schools. He was right. The system is in place to make you a sheep. I spent like 25 years in schools. 2 unis..first one was engineering and i loathed it..i was pushed by the poverty mindset of my sister and that yea is cool to be an engineer. Not. I was super creative and geared towards literature an visuals and fashion. In my country highschools are not profiled that way so even there i studied math. I hated it. Because of that awful experience i will never in my life do smth i dont like. It kills my spirit. After quitting first uni..i went to a private one to study international relations. Great culture and info..but from there 10 % only get hired. I pursued an international stage abroad…and a module was held by a teacher from harvard.whose wife was an actress. I made friends with her and realized geee…i really like to act. So i started getting international modules in acting. Hopefully ill be able to scale up in time a pod business. I dont want to be dependent on producers. I want freedom and money to create. Also a 9 to 5 for me is a tragedy..cant wake up in the morning without wishing i were dead

  44. Pierre Perfect says:

    Social sciences in college is a scam, plain and simple. I got robbed thousands of dollars going there, being brainwashed thinking I was "learning". Instead, left-wing political views and theories were pushed down my throat for 3 years. It took me a marketing course to get me out of the university, and luckily, it worked, my business grew and now I'm making a comfortable living working online. Those thousands of dollars that the uni took is still hard to take though, I wish I knew better at the time I went to uni.

  45. decentradical says:

    I wish I dropped out of college. What a massive waste of time that was. I barely learned anything useful at all and even picked up a score of bad habits that had to ironed out of me by me thankfully amazing employers who were already prepared for graduates needing to unlearn stuff first.

  46. Micro Tasker says:

    Started College but because of the particular timing of it (1990s), I got a job because I could program not even a year into it. Found myself making more than my parents at 19 years old. Then the H1B's came and that work became worthless so I started my own thing and haven't had a boss since.

  47. mark norabuena says:

    I loved how you wrapped up the whole explanation! “It was a whole failed sunk fallacy”. I like the stats part to back up your argument. Many people get wrapped up having the feeling the choice but going to school pressure. I think in Swedan? They now encourage creativity over be told how to learn & the system is more successful that way. I love hearing your personal side of your story. I do believe there are many people like that, that totally want what you’ve discovered. Which is deciding for oneself & sticking to our own decision’s that benefit us or how you put “It’s a no brainer”, lol I thought that was funny how you put that. Cheers to you for the story.

  48. Dj Tyson sherif says:

    I'm on the verge Sarah 💖

  49. EgoShredder says:

    Educational school and universities produce compliant slaves. These establishments are also Marxist indoctrination houses.

  50. Paul Torres says:

    the queen of finessing

  51. Stickman says:

    I'm going back to uni next year to finish relevant study. Don't underestimate the power and reach of the right piece of paper.

  52. Qngelia Ral says:

    Time as a matter of fact is up the way they can find a best small business for earn money than college, job or disability incomes. They choose the wrong low-paid hard work or disability income limits a monthly payment $750 for earn less that’s not good and suck! I am a deaf person who wanted to fight for it find a real small business to earn money for my life! I am still a focus practice to learn and things to do a success business deaf person. I hope I will be successful my business life in someday. I love your vlog is very funny that makes laugh but true life isn’t easy.

  53. Vadim Smilansky says:

    you did a right thing for you!

  54. Younes meroZen says:

    Phenomenal Animations thankyou for sharing!!

  55. Ben McKean says:

    It's a simple supply and demand problem. Not including the lowered intelligence and skills of graduates. When there are more graduates then the renumeration paid and the chances of being employed both decrease. A little more nuance of course but that's the jist of it.

  56. Chan Chan says:

    Hey Sarah, Great Video. What software do you use for the animations I am so loving them

  57. Nicole Tara says:

    5:54–6:06 lmaooo this was me in college. I only read the first page and skimmed the last page

  58. RLS RLS says:

    9:18 – That adult with the pacifier! 😂😂😂

  59. Lumos Nox says:

    You should definitely listen to the song “Little Boxes” by Walk Off The Earth

  60. Sara Lake says:

    'I didn't want to do what came naturally to me and cheat' HAHAHA. Omg. I dropped out of uni first time (to the horror of absolutely everyone), then went back in my late 30's to pursue my passion for psychology and nutrition and now have a master's degree. Getting into the postgrad world was great because there you get to do research and start questioning what is known (especially in the world of nutrition, this is great fun). So, I'd say if you love something then uni is a great place to apply yourself and focus, but this rush to go straight from school is IMO silly, and designed to quickly make workers that pump out tax dollars. Also, Canterbury has an e-commerce degree that might have suited you better – you could have worked on your biz for assignments 😉

  61. OXOX says:

    Absolutely hilarious.

  62. Jim Somchai says:

    Good story and very well-done animation. Do you do the animation yourself? If so, two thumbs up for you Sarah!

  63. i says:

    Are you really a millionare.?

  64. Meow says:

    Dropped out when im 14, and now making tons of money, most importantly didnt regret

  65. Cassie Shaffer says:

    Hi Sara, your videos have gave me the courage to open my own online store! However I'm so confused on settling on a niche and find everything I know to be turns out very saturated, but Im not giving up! Thanks for sharing all your knowlege and willing to be our biggest cheerleader!📣

  66. DiggOlive says:

    The rawest of the raw

  67. kck says:

    Hey beautiful Sarah

  68. Andy H. Tu says:

    i wish i dropped out of school and learned about business. Now I'm in 300k debt lol. Hopefully I can crawl out of this hole with wholesale ted 😉

  69. Direct Netstores says:

    "College"? I thought it was called "University" in New Zealand. Oh! I get it. You're pandering to all the ignorant Americans who watch this channel. Got it. LOL

  70. Abhishek Agrawal says:

    Should we use abandoned cart protector or email marketing app(like mail chimp as well?) Or or both ?

  71. Vini Vici says:

    Sarah is one of the most authentic people in the business. Unlike most marketers who look artificial and talk slick like politicians, Sarah is incredibly honest and open. She is a true inspiration for anyone trying to start their own business

  72. Ben Kucenski says:

    You get out of college what you put into it. If you want to just pass the classes, you won't get much value out of it. It's an excuse to focus on a discipline and have some direction in your studies and you should go outside of the assigned material to create your own things. College is a subset of what you need to know to be successful in life. The rest you learn on the job and on your own time. I tried to find at least one useful nugget from my classes to use in my real projects. One day my logic professor was talking about a "perfect hash." She had no idea what use there was for it and didn't think it could exist. She was mostly right. I ended up using the idea at work to great success in a client / server application. While humanities may have made sense, you probably would have found a business degree more immediately useful. Some schools have entrepreneur studies.

    While you were resisting learning dry material that was assigned, life is full of dry material that you'll be better off reading. College is about learning how to learn. I'm now getting my MBA and it's being paid for by my employer. While I'm acing my classes, I'm also reading a lot of leadership books. I could have read them without the MBA program, but the MBA program creates a focus. If you just want to pass the classes as fast as possible, you are wasting your time. Employers figure you out by talking to you and see how you talk about things. Someone who rushes through college doing the bare minimum is going to have a hard time getting a job.

    If you can achieve success without formal structure, that's certainly not a bad thing. But for every "I didn't go to college" success story, there's 10,000 "I didn't go to college" minimum wage workers.

  73. The Nomad Soul says:

    I love you for this!! College is a joke, every game changer knows that 😉

  74. Seditia Rose says:

    You definitely did the right thing. The college system is outdated and terribly inadequate in the information age.
    Appreciate your videos. Starting my own biz thanks to you! Smart gal! 👍👌

  75. Ripley's TV Nintendo Switch says:

    Yes, undergraduate is getting lower salary than some of the blue collar jobs. Other than that, some of us are currently working on jobs that are not related to our degrees.

    Also, people tend to measure success based on how much we earn. This is life. XD

  76. César Díaz says:

    I think some people don't understand that successful people who dropped out of college, did that to study more on their own, I mean, learning REAL-world skills that could help them to achieve their goal

  77. Patrick Conroy says:

    Sarah, love your channel. FYI: Not all of Ireland is in the UK only part of it. In your animation you show Ireland as part of the UK. A lot of the talk about Brexit has to do with the fact that Ireland is part owned by UK. Lookup "BackStop". Not hating you here, just educating you before someone else bounces off you. Keep it up girl. You ROCK!

  78. sflxn says:

    Sara, love these animation. Keep it up! Do you pay someone to do these?

  79. Mark Scott says:

    Hi Sarah

  80. msunderland2008 says:

    Sarah, what software are you using for your animated videos?

  81. Michael Oliver says:

    Thanks so much for all of your great content!! It has really helped me gain a foothold with e-commerce and I have put some hard work into getting my psychedelic print-on-demand store up and running! I tried my best to put a lot of your advice into action and was wondering if you would be able to take a look? It would be amazing if you used it in one of your store review videos!

    A college degree, in the USA, is required not just for the field in which the degree was earned but rather for any menial job.

    Basically kids..money talks, bullshit walks! Play or be played.

    I think the crucial thing here is that you'd already found something you liked doing, that made money. Quite honestly, this online business stuff: I don't enjoy it the way you clearly do. It's a chore for me.

    I anticipate that there will be plenty of people who don't like the 9-5, or the idea of the 9-5, and to whom the idea of an online business appeals… but who wouldn't/won't actually like running a business either.

    Dropping out of college or the 9-5 when you ALREADY HAVE something that's working for you is one thing but dropping out to "try" it could be a big mistake.

    I keep reading about America pulling out of the UPU over the trade war with China, which means the end of epacket shipping in America. How do you think this will effect drop shipping in America?

    Hi Sarah, forgive me for this but at 9:30 you say "I didn't want to do what came naturally to me & cheat" I'm sure you don't mean that cheating comes naturally to you. Do you mean that it's natural for you to hire someone to do your essay, -which would have also been cheating? best reagrds,Daniel

    It depends what you want to do in life, if you want to be a doctor, lawyer, banker then yes a degree will be needed but some degrees are absolutely hopeless

    Dropped out of college earlier this year but working full time in order to research and build my online store! Tomorrow will be the grand opening and I can’t wait to use all the knowledge I learn from not only from your dropship club but also with other successful entrepreneurs!
