We had the good fortune of connecting with Lesline “Chevine” Johnson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Lesline “Chevine”, is there something you believe many others might not?
The one piece of conventional advice I disagree with is that everyone has to attend College/University to obtain a degree in order to be valuable to society. Don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with attending College/University which is a must for particular fields like Medical, Law and Engineering. I attended college and drop out 2 classes from getting my degree and venture off into the world gaining tangible knowledge that ultimately lead me to becoming a somewhat successful entrepreneur. (In my humblest opinion)
