I’m often asked why I started a business instead of attempting to earn an MBA. I often point them to this infographic which I find helpful. I’m not saying that my friends who went and earned their MBA did not gain vital knowledge or make lifelong contacts that will benefit them over time. Nor am I certain that things would not have turned out better had I chose to try it their way. Actually I bet I would have loved it and been an earnest advocate. But now that I begin to transition away from my current business and look forward to the next step I am again facing this question. So, I thought I’d be a good thing to share.
