156: Meet Nick Bond: Age 22, College Graduate, Unemployable

#156: Unemployable by choice, Nick Bond, age 22, is a recent college graduate that is building his own real estate business rather than getting a job. School grades aren’t any more predictive of success than rolling a pair of dice. I discuss Boston College research that supports this. Valedictorians don’t become billionaires. Millionaires have an average college GPA of 2.9. Is it worth it to go to college? College is more expensive in the U.S. than anywhere else in the world. Yet at the same time, the value of a college degree has dropped. Once you got out of school, you found yourself “making things up” as you go. Later, you find out that everybody is “making things up”. Today’s guest, Nick Bond isn’t taking the j-o-b route that his friends are. He was influenced by his parents to be more entrepreneurial. Nick has begun raw land investing / flipping.
