  1. That’s full on bullshit. Indeed you do not NEED to go to school to be a successful entrepreneur, but then he’s missing the whole point of school. School is here to provide an education. To prepare them for the adult life (that’s primary school and high school). Sure, you do a lot of things that you don’t like and might think are useless, but the point of School, is not to like it. You go to school and have to deal with a lot of things you don’t like. Well doesn’t that happen when operating a business? Do you really think entrepreneurs like absolutely everything that they do? DEFINITELY NOT! If you’re basic grammar is aweful, how you expect someone to do business with you? Primary School and High School are to provide the basics. And then, most people think that the only way to be an entrepreneur is to open a dropshiping store and boom you’re the man. Well that’s not how it works. Some entrepreneurs MUST go to college to be able to run their businesses. Let’s say you want to open your own Law Firm, or your Architectural Firm, or your own barber shop and franchise it. So you’re telling me you can do that without going to school ?! Hah! What a joke. Good luck then getting beat up for fucking up people haircut or sending your clients for 30 years in jail when the maximum was 20. People completely miss the point of school. If you do not want to go, then just don’t. But don’t say school fails entrepreneurs because that’s crap. There’s a lot of businesses that require knowledge and thus education in from of a degree to be managed. You can perfectly open your psychology office and be your own boss, have a few employees working for you. You’re an entrepreneur. But rest assured you cannot be a psychologist without going to college. Same for a dentist, or a surgeon. Are all these just “workers” ? Who do they work for ? I know a LOT of dentists that own their own dentist office and just go on vacation whenever they want, go to work whenever they want, sometimes the whole week, sometimes just 2 or 3 days, and guess what, while they’re having a vacation in their 5 star hotel after taking the plane in first class, they’re still making money because their office is still running. And so on for so many careers. School is not just in the context of it, it’s not just about the material of the courses. School is to train people to adapt to real life. There’s a lot of stuff you do at School that you don’t like, just like at work, wether you work for someone else or for yourself. If you run a swimming pool business and a client comes complaining about a water leak, you won’t like that. If someone sends you an email and you have to answer with a big detailed answer, you won’t regret having learned at school how to properly write. And I think the big mistake is to believe that an entrepreneur can only be a college/school dropout (or that didn’t even attend) that has a Shopify or Amazon FBA store and is buying 5$ products from China and selling them for 40$. “School is failing entrepreneurs everyday” no man, you’re just missing the point of School…

  2. Its a fact….Entrepreneurs have been criticized, shamed and failed by the system….

    All a person goes to learn in school is to make a paycheck….Literally working for someone who would have put his heart out learning skills and building the businesses he wishes to be placed….

    You actually dnt need school to be successful….You just got to have that unquenching thirst for knowledge with a blend in perseverance……

    How many time can you dare to get back up when situations have left you dead flat on your back…

  3. Gary's perspective is 1000% correct… You can give your perspective… You can disagree with it…But you can't ignore it… Most of the successful people on earth you heard are the most school failure… If you disagree with him..then you may know….He is talking about the millionaire… And you are talking about average….

  4. Students study because there is something at the end .. the marks
    And workers work hard to get their salary at the end of the month .. Same logic If you wanna be a Entrepreneur you have to study your way not the way people are asking you to do it …

  5. The most important things in life can't be learned at school. An entrepreneur has a flexible and dynamic mind, an entrepreneur make things happen with intelligence, an entrepreneur sees everything through his own eyes.
    Well, school doesn't require these quality and nor doesn't give them to you in any way.
    School just tests your ability to emulate what they have forced you to learn and they translate this ability in marks.
    Every single entrepreneur-like minded person and every single really intelligent person on earth will hate school. School want us just to be good at taking orders from others and to make us think all in the same way with the same notions.
    I know a lot of people so good at school but so stupid in real life. They cannot solve problems that life put in front of them everyday! School requires just memory and a small mind, because a small minded person will learn every single notion they force you to learn, even if it's truthful and useful and even if it's not.

  6. What I learned after 20 years of school. English,, basic math, some geographical facts…and that´s pretty much it. Life has taught me so much the last 5 years going into entrepreneuship. Personal development, learning to handle feelings/emotions, understand basic mechanisms in the world, politics, the value of different things – "even" marketing and sales. Of course, these are things you learn if you develop yourself as an adult..but most people don´t because they follow the path laid out for them by the "system" so to speak. They are like Gary says, destined to become workers. And that´s what the system wanted us to become. But in the new economy and the new world, thats outdated. Too bad the school system and system in general won´t change – because it´s destroying so many kids futures. I dont even think the system wants to educate "workers" anymore come to think of it. Why would it? There is hardly any old school jobs left. You have to get out there and create something yourself. I´m gonna mentor and help my son with this, so that he wont waste 20 years of his life. I´m gonna teach him about the real world and never ever push him into doing meaningless homework. If he inherits my IQ , which he probably will do, he can be an average student withouth any effort.

  7. School is great, if you think you need school to get where you want. If you have a vision and you don't think you need school, then you absolutely don't. After you have a vision, key things you need are consistent action and persistence. Level of education doesn't fucking matter in business. Some people go to Ivy League schools but are fucking pussies, they'll never pull the trigger on risk. They are "too smart" for their own good.

  8. I don't understand the guys who just because gary said that, think that they'll make it because they suck at school or will tell fancy school graduates that they will be less successful then themselves. Get your shit right guys, Gary was born for entrepreneurship, he made money in his garage, he knew where he was going. Most of you guys should take school more seriously, cause in the marketplace, your chances are even lower.
