Business Strategy: Dropping out of college is a terrible idea if you want to be a millionaire

Peter Thiel is offering a $10,000 fellowship to
young entrepreneurs who drop out of college. While it’s tempting, Scott
Galloway reveals why it is awful advice. Following is a transcription of
the video.

Scott Galloway. Professor of marketing, NYU Stern. Despite how
outrageously expensive college is, it’s still a pretty good plan B.

If a billionaire shows up and offers you $10,000 to drop out of college, punch that person in the face.

It’s sort of, in my opinion, obscene that a billionaire with an
undergraduate degree and a graduate degree is running around the nation
trying to convince people to drop out of college.

It appears that it worked pretty well for him. If you look at new
millionaires over the last 20 years, the vast majority of them have two
things in common.

One is they work out every day. Physical fitness is very important in
terms of your own levels of confidence and avoiding things like
depression and having more energy every day.

But the number one thing all these folks have in common?

They went to college.

I just think it’s obnoxious that a man who went to Stanford and then
got a law degree and became a billionaire off of the credibility he was
able to raise money off of is now telling kids to drop out of college.

I think it’s f—— obnoxious. I mean if Steve Jobs or if Bill Gates
was doing it, they have some credibility or some license to say it, but
a guy with a graduate degree?

Drop out of college?

I tried to do this through Berkeley, and they didn’t want to do it.

I said to Berkeley, I said ” I’ll give kids, pick 10 smart kids”– I
just endowed a scholarship at Berkeley and said “let’s track 10 of them
versus the 10 that Thiel… and we’re going to win.”

And they said, “well, we don’t want to embarrass the other kids.”

But who would you bet on? 10 Berkeley grads, who are smart students with a college degree or…

There are always going to be the JAY-Zs of the world. There’s going
to be the Kobe Bryants. There’s going to be the Mark Zuckerbergs, the
people that drop out of college.

You should assume you’re not that person and go to college.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
