"I was too stupid to graduate..."

And two years later I was thrown out of graduate school.

P.S. I'm glad I got kicked out…

I'm afraid if I'd graduated I would have relied on my degree to save me.

I would have gotten a job to justify the degree and that would be that.

One job. One income.

But without that degree I had to save myself.

I had to learn what really works with no safety net.

Actually that's not true.

I built my own safety net.

I created several sources of income. I got good at it.

I created networks too. – By James Altucher
