"Hope for the best, PREPARE for the worst. (Always be prepared!)"
I have a Masters in Creativity & Change Leadership from the Buffalo State College (SUNY). The program's emphasis is on facilitation - the Creative Problem Solving process, Research (in Creativity), and Tests & Measures (MBTI, FourSight, etc.).
We are professional brainstormers.
I have a Bachelors Degree in Communications (TV & Radio) also from Buffalo State College (SUNY). So, I studied and participated in all forms of media while there, and since.
I do/perform/study/write comedy.
I've worked in the corporate world too. There would be people I worked with who got paid in the same level... And they either were still getting their degree, or started college, but dropped out. So having the degree wasn't necessary.
It just wasn't really necessary at all.
Some had degrees, but were in the field we currently were working in.
So simply put, if you can get your foot in the door, you don't need college at all.
