    If you do not mind me asking; What is your education and if you were to change it, what would you change it to? Why?

    Personally, I am completing a 4 year degree in Turf Management. I love grass, but sometimes think I should have went with Landscape Contracting.

    Thank you for your responses.

    Bachelors in Business and Small business and entrepreneurship. Just get a degree. Realtiy is even if it isnt the profession you end up in. Most jobs for example "elevator mechanic" just require a degree, a degree in anything.... Your much more valuable as a college grad or a degree holder.

    That would suck to go through a 4 year degree and then wonder if you should have spent your time on a different degree....4 years too late dude.

    Thank you to those that replied, but I wish more people would answer. I am inspired by those that only graduated high school and yet due to hard work and determination they have succeeded. I know there are many of you that are like that one here. Chime in guys.
