Posted by Fox (Fox), 8 January 2004I have UMB credit - what have you lot got?
Posted by martin_606 (martin_606), 8 January 2004Hi
Althougth I am a great believer in education you do not need qualifications to
A. be in business
B. be very wealthy
In fact there are more Millionaires who have no formal education than those with.
You need common sense, drive, desire, determination and disipline. If you fail, fail fast and move on.
Is a smart person someone who knows everything, or someone who can get someone who knows what they need to know so they can get on with growing their business?
Just my most humble opinion

but are not required for your own business.
As we all know, there are many thousands of people with qualifications who are on the dole.
Good luck on you new business
