And I think an education is important, but a work ethic is more important. How many college kids have useless degrees these days and still live at home with their parents?

I know if I went to college my net worth would be 25% if that of what is today. I have busted my rear since I was his age and I don't have regrets.
A man (woman) with a strong work ethic will never go hungry. I think there are things you can do that may help open doors of opportunity and college, military are a couple of those doors. However a strong work ethic is the cornerstone of success. Without that, you can open as many doors as you like but you will never reach your potential.
