    Really enjoyed this @Mark Blevins. Epic story about the coffee shop! And, couldn't agree more about teens and the loss of control we have no matter what rules they are given. Each child is different. My second pushed me to the limit often. She had and still does have a great heart but she was such a social butterfly in HS, it was hard to hold her back w/out major tiffs going on constantly. I'm glad she grew up! :)

    Great info @John White, MBA. Couldn't agree more, college has become way too expensive and jobs are lacking. Kudos to the younger generation for their innovation, drive and desire to become an entrepreneur. I love your info graphic and wow- forgot how much Zuckerburg has matured since that photo was taken.

    I wish they still trained people for jobs based on their willingness and intellect. That's how I became a Respiratory Tech and Cardiac Lab tech- OJT (On the job training) because there was a need for it and people believed in me. I was going to finish college back then but the pay and experience was too good to pass up. Sadly, after we moved I wasn't able to work in the fields I grew to love and know so much about because everyone required a College degree. I'm also a tactile learner, so not all of us are 'so called' College material. I did go on to get my Associates when my kids were in middle school & HS but wasn't able to return for personal reasons- financial being one of the largest after I had to start paying my own student loan and a Parental Plus loan for one of my kids. For those who aren't aware how much student loans can cost- lets just say, they can be more costly than a house payment each month. Go Entrepreneurs!!

    Show me an entrepreneur without some education and I'll show you an accident getting ready to happen. In today's world even a high school diploma is insufficient to suggest one has the capability to build a company. Even some college as Jobs, Gates and Zuckerberg had are questionable.For way too many years in my opinion we have pushed aside trade education in the USA based on the idea that everyone should go to college. What was once learned in high school is now pushed into Community Colleges and as a result is delaying young men and women from their still required apprenticeship.The only ones that will profit from this trend is the adult education market and the charlatans that prey on the aspirations of these young people..

    If they are still around in a few years (and legit) the positioning line of Phoenix University "WE RISE" will be justified.

    This was a great article for many baby boomers also rather have their own rather than the traditional route. In my situation, I have a disability and I thought of the almost perfect business for myself and many in my age group can't stand being turning down for a job when they are clearly qualified for the position or worst than that, some 20-30 something has a parent issue and they are the one to seem to be your boss. Imagine, just because they had a bad childhood they turn around and take it out on you for just being there and wanting to work and be left alone. Mr. White, thank you for a great article and have a great day.

    Interesting article John. I was a late baby boomer, and not only were you encouraged to find a job for life, but girls weren't even encouraged to go to college and university, as we were only taught needlework, cooking and girly sports like netball in high school. I was horrified when I later learned girls had marks deducted in examinations so they didn't do as well as boys. We weren't allowed to do metalwork, woodwork nor play football. I remember my dad being horrified when I wanted to change jobs after two years into my first job - for a promotion, as you rightly say it was finding a job until retirement. It was a sad day when my granddad retired, having worked in the same job from age 14 to be given a gold watch at 65. As he said, what is the point of having a watch when you retire, and people were old at 65. So I say all the best to the Gen Zers. And yes, I left the formal employment and became an entrepreneur - nothing like having your own company. Regards, Linda

    This all seems a bit rush to me. If someone doesn't have a plan about his life, becoming an entrepreneur isn't going to automatically fix that. You can still have a good life as a conventional worker and then, when you have what it takes and you have a vision about your life that you cannot fulfill through your day job, then you can consider becoming an entrepreneur. Just because we are aware of a handful of very successful people who made it big through starting their own companies, it doesn't mean that everyone can benefit from becoming an entrepreneur...

    Time repeats itself. Schools & universities don’t guarantee success, profitability or a career. And it’s not new, just by checking the level of education of some successful people from the past we can learn that many not only have no university diplomas, but just a few years at schools. Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, Henry Ford just a few to name. Life requires new skills every day, and that makes standard education inefficient.

    This is an interesting phenomena and one that may well be necessary as we get deeper into the 4th Industrial Revolution, with increased automation and disrupted business models. Even if you followed the "traditional" path (really just for the last 100 years) and did everything right it's still likely the company you work for will go out of business. The average time a company stays on the S&P 500 has dropped significantly in recent years. I believe the way around this for many people will be consumer electronics based entrepreneurship.

    @John White, MBA, I don't mean to belabor a point. But one of the things that concerns me most about the effect of social media on our society going forward is that so many use SM to give advice that is born not out of experience and accomplishment, but rather out of a personal hope for their own life. I tell my daughters all the time to make sure they pay attention to advice only from people who have "been there" and not from people who still only want to be there. For the latter are seeking mostly to convince themselves that the path they've chosen is the right one. And in the course of doing so often give out some of the worst advice to be found. I am sorry if that seems harsh, but it is the truth. The stats you present, John, are exceedingly useful. Thanks. And cheers!

    #10 Phil, I Agree. If one's path is a career that needs a degree such as a Lawyer, Doctor, Teacher and so forth, than College is a great direction. Yet, if one goal that which money is the tool to achieve it, college is the wrong direction. It is the wrong type of education, which leads to the wrong type of CashFlow Quadrant vehicle to reach that goal.
    Phil Friedman
    08/10/2017 #10 Phil Friedman
    #8 Preston, I agree that there is a huge difference between going through and getting an education. And I agree that if it is one's intention or M.O. to simply get through school while avoiding all learning, then one would likely do better to quit. But believe it or not, some people actually do find education and learning at school. Cheers!

    08/10/2017 #9 Phil Friedman
    #5 David, I think we have to distinguish between formal education and life-education. Also between general education and vocational training. In some circumstances life-based education is better suited to fit the bill than formal education. But learning is always essential. Too often today, entrepreneurship is seen as an escape from having to work at learning. And a self-elected "entrepreneur" in search of a passion is a formula for disaster. I can't count the number of time in the last ten years I've told a would-be entrepreneur that simply being out of a job does not make you an entrepreneur. Oh BTW, I am not convinced that dropping out of school is a good thing for most simply because Zuckerberg or Jobs did. For how many of them are there in the world? Michael Jordon dropped out of college in his third year. Does that mean dropping out is a good idea? How many Michael Jordan's are there?

    Great Buzz. I, myself, did not even look into a path of being an entrepreneur til a few years after college. It wasn't til that point when I realized that my education really began. I graduated at almost the top of my class yet I never learned anything in college. I memorized my way through school. After I took a class, I never used that information again and went on to the next.
    When I decided to become an entrepreneur people where now teaching me Life Principles that I could share and use forever. This was unlike any thing in college. I even went back to my professors angry to ask why I was not taught this. My answer was honest and straight forward, "You came here to learn to work for someone else."
    I realized that society's Plan A has 98% failure rate yet people keep pouring so much into it. I needed my own Plan B, and C. Robert Kiyosaki's "CashFlow" showed me how to plan that.

    Thumbs up to those who aspire to be an entrepreneur, however, I feel an education is important. Sure it's great to follow your dreams but sometimes easier said than done. A good education will set you apart from the others; lay the foundation for your dream business; be a backup plan in case you don't succeed.

    Thanks so much, John, for sharing these important insights and astute observations on the next generation of future leaders. You provide a good window into how some of these young people are grabbing entrepreneurship by the horns and leveraging disruptive innovation to turn their bold dreams into reality.
    In essence, move over Millennials! Here comes Gen Z...
    Also, while I agree with you and @Phil Friedman (generally speaking) about kids attending and completing college, let also recall that some of the leading innovative change makers of our time -- from Steve Jobs to Mark Zuckerberg -- dropped out of college to pursue their business ventures.
    And let's also not forget about the more conventional former U.S. President, "Honest Abe" Lincoln, who successful led America through some of the toughest times in the nation's history without a college degree.
    Just playing "devil advocate" here to expand the conversation.

    #3 Well said, Phil. For the record, my kids will be going to college and will be encouraged to pursue a graduate degree. While I admire the aspirations of the Gen Z entrepreneurs, I don't think anyone should pursue entrepreneurialism in lieu of getting an education. There is no expiration date on becoming an entrepreneur, so Gen Z shouldn't feel in a hurry to get started.
