You guys know I love this stuff. It's no secret that you need a college degree to be a doctor, a Peter Thiel will even pay you $100,000 not to go. Enter Michael Ellsberg, author of The Education of Millionaires, a book about all the people who blew off school and became enormously wealthy. The gist of the book? Work on your soft skills more than anything else. It's something I've said my whole life: The guy who knows why something needs to be done will always make more than the guy who knows how to do it., or an engineer. But what if you just want to be filthy rich? College is expensive and may even stifle your creativity. On top of that, PayPal founder
I know the average banker can quote the bible of higher education chapter and verse. But there really is a better way for some people, and I'm living proof of that. While I'd prefer balls and brains in equal measure, if I'm forced to choose I'll take balls every time (no homo). Some fantastichere as well. Enjoy:
