Sorry but I think this is poo-poo.
I would never suggest someone not get a degree because it makes your life a lot easier. But as far as running your own business you either have it or you don't. I don't believe that any amount of college will prepare you for what it takes. I have my Masters in Computer Science so I'm not just dismissing people with degrees.
Every year I work with young punks (I was the young punk once) who come out of college with a degree in CS or BMIS and have absolutely no clue as to what it takes to work within a production team, design code on a deadline and work with clients. They know how to code but they have no idea how to make that skill profitable.
Again, I agree. But do you think a HS grad knows how to do that? Even more doubtful.
