After having a conversation with one of my clients, I started thinking about this subject. 1) What do you experienced operators out there think about education? 2) How far did you go in school? 3) What advice would you have for a young businessman who is considdering dropping out of school? For me, I am a beliver in education systems, and how I have learned how to deal with different types of people, I'm not embarassed to speak in front of a group, and also feel that I am able to speak with authority on a number of subjects ( some work related) Math has prepared me to confidently do estimates, budgets taxes and so on. I got an AAS degree in Natural Resouces/Park and Recreation Management. This involved course work in Soil Science, Botany, Turfgrass Management, Plant Propagation, Ecology, Forestry, Small engine repair, Welding, Construction and Water Systems just to name a few.... I continue course work as it is available in work related subjects. Stay in school people, and if you want to run a business thats great, but take the time to learn as you go along, or you will hit a plateau- in business and in life.
