Learn something technical! If you know something technical and have the ability to sell you'll be so far ahead of everyone else

Jot down every idea you have. If one is something that could potentially create value for a user then try to start a company. Most startups fail, but the experience gained from starting a business with a user's benefit in mind is invaluable.

I started a company at 24 that eventually failed. The experience I gained from that was more valuable than anything I learned in my MBA.

No one cares what you think.ย 

Seriously, keep your head down and work strategically in your world. Demonstrate success, and THEN let people ask you what you think.ย

Tailor your degree and formal education around your career not the other way.ย
