Education is very important and we believe that no one should miss out on their days of education. The entire system of education is so formed that it has formed like a race. It’s a race for getting good grades only. Creativity, applicative knowledge and inner guts have been lost in this rat race. Are getting 90+ percent marks and an A grading the only aim of being educated? If NO is the answer to your question, then wake up and reach where you want to see yourself. Let’s get to know some of the so-called crazy people having genius minds who proved their point without a degree.
Larry Ellison, Founder of ORACLE
He did not complete his degree at the University of Chicago and left it halfway after a year. He is the 9th richest man in the world. It’s a story of being rich from rags with an adoptive father who nagged him constantly as good for nothing guy. His belief in himself and insight led him to where he is today.
Michael Dell, Founder of DELL
