I have a degree in Electrical Engineering from Penn State. Had it paid for by Uncle Sam and fellow taxpayers (thanks) via the GI Bill. To get a doctorate, that's big bucks and probably about 800 bucks at least per month for student loan payments. Nothing like having your own business. A job with a company won't pay you like landscaping can of you play your cards right. Looking back, as long as one can hustle and run a business, school may have been a waste of time for me, although its a good plan B because you can always go back and get a regular job again.
