Youtube channel TheRichest shares a list of the 10 Richest High School Dropouts, which includes the likes of Quentin Tarantino, Aretha Franklin and George Foreman.
In our years of growing up, we were constantly told that we needed to stay in school, graduate from high school, and go to college. These are all ingredients for a recipe that leads to living a successful life after our education is over. If we drop out or don’t go to college, society tells us that we are doomed to low paying jobs and not a lot of success in life. However, there have been several people who have managed to become wealthy regardless of having a college degree. But, there is something even worse than dropping out of college, and that is dropping out of high school. High school gives us our most basic education and information that is needed to live outside of school. Most people without a high school education are reduced to general labor jobs or working in fast food because it’s general and simple enough to not need any background or special skills for.
The people in this video have defied the stereotype and managed to become filthy rich regardless of dropping out of high school. These people have started brands and major industries that we all know today, and the creators behind them didn’t even have a general education. But when you’re as rich as these people, the real question is, who cares? Why even bother getting that extra education when you’re already rolling in the dough? These people certainly didn’t and they’re laughing all the way to the bank without their high school diploma.
