Many jobs require a certificate, license, or college degree. Doctors, lawyers, nurses, mechanics, and many other professions require you to get some kind of formal education.
Conversely, there are many business opportunities that require no formal education. These opportunities include developing applications for computers, tablets and smart phones; designing a new video game that can be played online and found in the app store; creating a successful website or blog; becoming a business consultant; becoming a tutor and publisher for a variety of subjects; starting a lawn care company; starting a construction company; and the list goes on!
If you pursue the opportunities that don’t require a formal education, you will usually need to develop excellent learning habits. A college education is no longer enough for these opportunities; the most successful people today are lifelong learners. Be sure to continuously read a variety of books and learn new skills to sharpen your knowledge! Having a private tutor can help speed up this process. : )
