Everyone has the dream to work hard, go to college, and find success in the workplace. While higher education at a premier school isn’t easy or accessible to everyone, success can still be had. In fact, the beauty of a two-year or junior college is that no matter what your age, background or experience, you, too can find high paying careers with an associate degree. A bachelor’s degree at a traditional four-year university doesn’t have to be the only route to take your career to the next level. Pursuing an associate degree can be less time consuming, cheaper, and allows you to wear two hats simulataneously as a student and a professional.
Some successful entrepreneurs choose to spend their days assisting and abetting other ventures. It may be that the tireless hours and around-the-clock worries were too stressful and mentoring other start-up business leaders is a great way to stay engaged in a company without doing much of the hands-on work.
