This is definitely a big decision facing the young, new entrepreneurs of tomorrow- for so long going to college and earning a degree was the status quo and (for the most part) an essential step in being a successful business person. Now it seems as if having a degree isn't quite as vital in the minds of new entrepreneurs. What do you think?
 
Tell us your own pros and cons.
I'm successful, and I have a lot of thoughts on the value of education. In the end, there are good things and bad.

Really enjoyed the flowchart/infographic in this article, "What Type of Entrepreneur Are You?" Apparently I am the napkin-writing-on, impact-measuring, not-work-for-the-man type entrepreneur! Definitely worth a look:

Are you more Zuckerberg or Branson? More innovator or opportunist? Take this fun flowchart quiz to find out.

I'm probably late to the party in posting about this(just logged on for the first time today), but have you guys seen this story?? Imagine taking a $30,000 pay hike overnight. I love #startup success stories:

A Seattle business owner is dropping his salary from about $1 million to $70,000 to help pay his workers a minimum of $70,000, too.

Story
Tagline
Chief legal strategy officer and blogger of most things business, registered agent, nonprofit, and more
Introduction
I spent the early years of my life working at a locally owned sawmill and enjoyed living in the woods. My life experiences have crafted a unique real world perspective to the law and real world industries. The logging industry was effectively shut down from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA); the mill closed, and the town basically died. NAFTA reinvented my career by paying for me to go to law school.

As the chief legal strategy officer, my role at Northwest guides our company and our clients through the vast bureaucracy we all deal with when running a business. I'm interested in helping people start and run successful businesses. I'm always learning and sharing. I have a special interest in nonprofits as well as registered agent services--have any questions? Ask away. 

I've recently begun authoring a blog housed on Northwest Registered Agent that covers a variety of topics concerning LLCs, incorporation, registered agents and registered agent services, nonprofits, and entrepreneurship. It's all about solid, quality information and absolutely no filler:
