What if you took the top 1% of performers in the world — the self-made billionaires and millionaires and looked at what they all had in common.
Here, in this post, I’m going to share with you a few things they all do. Every time, the most successful people explain, “Why a College Degree is USELESS.”

Speaking of not being a millionaire, I worked in corporate for my past 3-4 years, I asked them what car they want to drive, always get the same response: LAMBO, FERRARI, BMW never get “Prius” or “Subaru Outback with great safety rating” But what happens later in life?

- 1 will be wealthy
- 4 will be finically secure
- 5 will continue working (not because they want to, because they have to)
- 36 will be dead
- 54 will be dead broke
