Employers don’t care about degrees, they care about results.

It’s really that simple. A degree is quickly becoming a poor indicator of performance in your job…most employers don’t even ask where you went to school anymore. At the end of the day, it’s always results that matter. If you can demonstrate that you can provide the results, the job is yours.

You don’t need credentials from a school, YOU are your own credential. You can create your own diploma from “Me University” and demonstrate that it’s more valuable than any other degree from any other university. Successful Dropout exists to show you how.
