I never really did that well in school.
My kindergartner teacher thought I had a learning disability (might be true hah), which resulted me going to resource class with Mr. Swenson who happened to have a WWII rifle and bayonet in his closet. Nothing happened in this “special class” but even then I was embarrassed about going everyday for years.
School is VERY boring to me. I always just wanted to learn about things I was interested in. This didn’t serve me very well as I failed so many tests and classes.
I ended up with my GED, super embarrassing as all of my friends graduated and walked. I did not. It become a running joke with my friends and family.
Traditional schooling made me feel like I was stupid and worthless.
The only way I was going to amount to anything and make money was to go and get a college education. Sound familiar?
EVERYONE, was singing this song. So, I listened to them and spent TONs of money and TONs of time struggling through classes that I felt offered me ZERO VALUE.
However, my business classes and entrepreneur classes I would get A’s in. Everything else was D’s, C’s and F’s Why?
It was because it was something I was interested in, taught real world concepts and real problem solving. Also, these classes are setup to work with teams to solve problems and assignments (this happens in the real world)
University was much different than grade school and high school. I ended up having to stop going to school because I couldn’t afford to live anymore…
More to come on how all this turns out and also the first business I started in College. ==> click here
