And it isn’t even always about education! Sounds to me this story is more about your intestinal fortitude than your education. AND, in my opinion, there are a thousand ways to view the very same issues…when I was told I couldn’t do certain things, I found ways. To date I have done Industrial Engineering Work for UPS without an Industrial Engineering degree, I am an ordained priest without a Divinity Degree and I have taught college level classes without an educational degree.
Some may argue that I am not a professional at any of the above, but that doesn’t stop me from encouraging others to pursue what they love to do. In fact, I am transitioning into making my living at it.
There’s an old adage in the Sales game…Be glad when you hear no because it means they don’t have enough information AND you are one no closer to yes! Bring on the No’s!
Congratulations on your achievements and living the life YOU want to live!
