Midterms

My Intro to Buddhism midterm was a few weeks ago, and this week I have my American Business History midterm. No, I’m not buried in Fluid Mechanics equations, but I’m no less stressed juggling the demands of a growing business and the demands of my professors.

When your new business is making money, you’ll begin to feel like college is an inhibitor, not an enabler, of your success.

I left school twice to pursue growing businesses, and my GPA reflects those two semesters when I just stopped caring.

Don’t make the same mistake: stick with it through the semester and set aside as much time as you need to get at least B’s. Unless you’re Bill Gates, a college degree is hugely important, for reasons I’ll discuss in my next blog.
