“The biggest scam in the U.S. is not a home business. The biggest scam is a college degree and the belief that getting a degree will necessarily get you a good-paying job. Today, U.S. student loans now exceed U.S. credit card debt. Over $800 Billion dollars owed.”
 
Now…don’t get my wrong.  I’m not saying college isn’t cool.  I loved my time in college at K-State.  And I certainly hope my future children go to college.  But…think about that.  So many people talk about home businesses being scams, but the REAL scam is teaching people how to go build equity in somebody else’s company, rather than do their own thing. 
 
College teaches us to do what?  College teaches you how to go get a JOB.  College teaches you how to go earn a WAGE and work for someone else.  
 
Yes…other than our Social Security system, which I will NOT get into today, one of the biggest scams being perpetuated onto the public is the idea that if you go to college, invest tens of thousands of dollars, you can actually get a good paying job and live your dream.  
 
Kinda thought that was interesting.  Don’t you think?  Think I’ll stick to being an entrepreneur…how about you?
