I don't care if my kids go to college.
I really don't.
This is coming from someone who has higher education. I went to UCLA for a BS in Microbiology & Molecular Genetics. Then graduated 4 years later Magna Cum Laude with my Master's in Traditional Oriental Medicine.
In reality, they'll probably go. As Danish citizens, my girls can have a free college education in Denmark. The experience to live and study abroad is too invaluable to pass up.
What I do care about is that they have an insatiable thirst for knowledge and they learn to channel that into a career they are passionate about. If they can wake up every morning excited to tackle the day's challenges, they are successful in my eyes.
My "Meh, college" attitude stems from being a small business owner.
The experience and knowledge gained in the past 18 years as an entrepeneur far eclipses what I learned in school.
Frankly with the information age, traditional education is outmoded unless you need the letters for a specific profession such as MD, JD, PhD. Classroom learning can't keep up with the pace of technology.
That's one of the biggest issues we face in finding fulfilling and financially rewarding work.
All this bull about bringing back manufacturing jobs is just smoke up our behinds. They are never coming back. The assembly line is gone. Robots are taking over.
We are in the age where information and creativity rule.
To keep up with the new developments, we have to seek knowledge elsewhere.
That's why it's so important for me to continually invest in my personal growth with online classes and conferences. Finding mentors who have achieved what I want. Following them. Implementing their teachings.
In fact next week, I'll be in Austin, TX for a Paleo Conference. I'm sure I'll return armed with all sorts of new info that I can share with you.
The point for you is this...
Everyone we meet has the potential to teach us something new. Even if it's a tiny nugget that you might not need at that moment but tuck it in your brain to be plucked out later. Be open to what that person can offer you.
Our paths have crossed. The info I share works to improve fertility. It's up to you to do something about it. Create a folder and save my emails for you to reference and reread later. The unfamiliar concepts you won't completely get the first time.
Go forth. Connect with people. Learn from them. Improve yourself.
Till and feed your soil so the fruits of your labor can burst forth.
