The price of a four-year college degree has increased much faster than the price of a two-year degree, yet there’s only a small wage gap between the two. Interesting…..
I love this story from the UK about a young man who doesn’t make much money but figured out a way to provide affordable shelter for himself. He didn’t wait for a handout in a challenging situation but instead did something about his problem. American children need to think like this young man did.
…the interest rate on student loans went up 20% last month. Read it and weep (better yet, question why we should let our young people become debt slaves in the first place.)
This young woman used eBay to launch a business that now employs hundreds of people here in the U.S. and is worth over $100 million. Did I mention she’s a college dropout?
Entrepreneurship continues to thrive, even in a lousy economy: this young man, despite several twists and turns in the road (along with a few discarded careers), stuck with his dream of creating a business by selling fantastic cookies made with his grandmother’s recipe, and now he’s finding success. Inspiring story! Share it with the young people in your life to give them a vision of entrepreneurial challenges and success.
