Richard Branson dropped out of high school, and he’s worth $5.1 billion at time of writing.

Amadeo Peter Giannini, multimillionaire founder of Bank of America, dropped out of high school.

Andrew Jackson, U.S. president, general, attorney, judge, congressman. Home-schooled, he became a practicing attorney by the age of 35 – without a formal education.

Anne Beiler, multimillionaire co-founder of Auntie Anne’s Pretzels. Dropped out of high school.

Mao Ze Dong didn’t have a degree, Nikita Khrushchev didn’t have a degree, and Joseph Stalin was expelled in 1899

Godtfred Kirk Christiansen, 2nd generation leader of Lego, had barely a high school education and read so haltingly that he would insist his sales managers give him oral reports.

Mark Zuckerberg dropped out after sophomore year, and we know who he is and where he’s now.

We’re not going to touch on Steve Jobs or Bill Gates.

On the other side of things:

Maurice Johnson has 2 degrees, very clever, and is articulate, and yet he was homeless at one stage in his life [2011] (I’m not exactly sure if he is still homeless, and he had his unlucky happenings that caused him to be homeless)

Number of PhD Recipients Using Food Stamps tripled in the US from 2007 to 2010.

If there is anyone who think academic certificates are entry passes to “good life”, then it’s about time for you to come down from Moon and back to Earth.

41c1d-originalAndy Lawson is the average man on the street that you’ll not even trouble yourself looking at him if he passes by you. He’s sensitive to bullshit, and he hates mediocrity in most people.

He is the author of his self-published book: Facts and Fiction of Fengshui: Facts that Masters are NOT Telling You.

He doesn’t have Facebook or Twitter, because he hates to be associated with people who tend to be passive-aggressive online, but he does have a very limited set of vocabularies, terrible grammar, a twisted mind that makes himself God in his own twisted world and an ability to communicate with people who wish to be his friend.
