This is VERY true. I've owned two businesses and helped run a third (w/ex-husband). You really do learn on the fly when you are self-employed.A business administration degree is helpful in the sense that it will teach you some fundamentals about operating a business. What it will not do is set you apart from anyone else in terms of hireability, nor will it suddenly embue you with the entrepreneureal skills needed to create a successful business... you're on your own for that.
Yes, the market is flooded with business degrees. Quite frankly, it's better to branch out into something else because an MBA is basically worthless nowadays.Would you ever major in business administration. I'm considering it. What is your opinion? Also, is the market flooded with business degrees?
Yeah the problem was with semantics, when I wrote about passion I was actually thinking about something Kerisey wrote:@joellr17 :
Ah, then there is a need for people to clarify what is meant by passion whenever they mention it. "Do what you love" does not preclude people doing what they love but are incompetent at. Hence, this message is sometimes miscontrued as "You can do it as long as you do what you love."
What you call a passion is what Gallup researchers call Strengths in the book Strengths Finder and Now Discover Your Strengths. I personally didn't find much value in it except for the Actions to Take component, as my MBTI pretty much revealed most of my Strengths.
Most of what you mentioned is also mentioned in the video contained in the link I posted before this, what synchronity!
With that definition I can quite agree with your "follow your passion" meme.
"There are people that enjoy learning to cook a new recipe even more than they enjoy eating what they cook."
I happen to be one of them.
