Derek Magill guest hosts this episode of Forward Tilt to share a story from a recent conversation with an aspiring brewer and entrepreneur. 
 
This was a college freshman with the goal of opening a microbrewery--in his first year of a four-year college program studying Political Science. Taking on debt and spending a massive amount of time attending lectures on political science, when his goal was to be an entrepreneur in the beer business. 
 
Stories like this are not uncommon. There are young people on college campuses all over the country spending tens of thousands of dollars on annual tuition for programs that have absolutely nothing to do with what they want in the long term. But still, these students haven’t questioned the idea that college is a necessary prerequisite to life. 
 
What if you stop before making the college decision to ask what if there is a better way? What if there is an alternative? And what if I can do it better myself?
 
In this episode:
  • Political Science degree as a prerequisite to running a microbrewery
  • Will college help you achieve your goals?
  • There are other paths outside of four-year college degrees
  • How can you learn, establish yourself, and make connections without taking on debt
