It's Caterpiller That Becomes Butterfly

Academically, how rich you are? Dropped out or not enough to be excited? If yes, so what! Still you have the potential to be something significant ... something influential like:

Valentina Terescova: Cosmonaut, first woman in space to orbit the earth.

Mary Lyon: Women's education pioneer, founder of Mount Holyoke College (America's first women's college)

Agatha Christie: Best-selling female author of all time; the most translated individual author in the history.

Helen Gurley Brown: Editor-in-chief of the Cosmopolitan magazine, the highest paid copywriter in the 60s.

Florence Nightingale: Modern nursing pioneer, nicknamed as "The Lady with the Lamp."

Marilyn Monroe: Model turned actress-singer, the only woman to have been listed in Forbes’s richest dead celebrity list.

Aretha Franklin: 20 times Grammy winning singer-pianist, the first woman artist to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Mildred Zaharias: Women's sports pioneer, won six gold medals and broke four world records at the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics.

So when people look at your academic qualification and say, "Isn't your education a drawback for your career?" let them know, success isn't limited without formal education; success is limited without vision. What's your vision?
