“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”Jim Rohn, an American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker.

Regardless of the skills that you may have picked up at school, nothing will prepare you for the working world where the occupation that you are entering into. No matter the industry that you are going into, whether you are working for a company or starting your own business, the lessons that you learn as you research and train for that business will be the fundamentals that stick with you over your formal schooling. Formal education is a great way that you can open the door to an excellent business opportunity as well as gain the fundamentals that you will need to run a business and be successful in the corporate world. However, formal education does not appropriately prepare us to jump headlong into the business world and be able to keep up with our competitors who have years of experience. Having a diploma and credentials is a great way that you can eventually find yourself in a job, but it is ultimately your skills that will allow you to keep that job.

Learning skills yourself

Self-education is crucial to obtaining freedom in your life. Knowing something different from another person, or constantly learning new skills is a great way that you can venture out as an entrepreneur and have more marketable skills when working for a company. As you expand on your own skills you become aware of more markets and opportunities and this can help you on your way to financial freedom. With more opportunities available to you you can select from the most lucrative of these opportunities as well as have multiple businesses on the go at once. For entrepreneurs, expansion into new markets is absolutely required to see fantastic results in sales and increased freedoms.

Today, with Internet lifestyle access to these new skills and new knowledge is easier to come by than ever before. Many universities are offering up their programs online for free and the speed that you can find information and learn new skills can be done faster than ever before. Remember that formal education can be important, but it is the effort you take at self-education that will eventually make you a fortune.
