True.....but having an education DOES give you an advantage over the uneducated.

I just don't think this is true. Take my business. It's all about marketing and nothing to do with "education." If you can market yourself well, you don't even have to be a high school graduate, but you can make a million (or more) annually.

It takes savvy, which many educated people simply do not have, and determination. If it was true that education gives you an edge, we wouldn't have Nikki Minaj, Britney Spears and others like them making fortunes.
