I am proof that you don’t necessarily need a suit to succeed: I didn’t finish high school, and after talking my way into university, dropped out with a semester to go. Most of what I’ve learned about business has come from starting 1-800-GOT-JUNK? in 1989, and building it from the ground up.
However, just because I didn’t complete a formal education doesn’t mean I stopped learning. Rather, I taught myself through trial and error, and more importantly, I asked experts for help.
