The fixation on qualifications is an out dated way of thinking and one that so many people have been conditioned to think is “what should be done”.

This is sometimes difficult for me because I used to be a university lecturer and degree author..

Yes I did actually write degrees…

The thing is education and studying is very powerful, and I don’t mean that lightly, I mean it can be life-changing.

However, studying to get a qualification, for the certificate/paper is not life-changing…

As an example I have a program where the outcome is to get social media managers to 10k/month..

The point of this then, or the outcome, is not a qualification…

The point is 10k/month from doing work for clients…

Would you rather have 10k/month or a piece of paper?

A client does not care if you have a qualification, nobody is going to say can I see your piece of paper please…

This may be the case in some traditional occupations (i.e. the ‘job” market) as a way in, like maths and English requirements to begin studying as a nurse..or medical degrees to be a Dr… That makes total sense.

However…

If you don’t want to be an “employee” believe me in the world of business nobody is ever going to be bothered about a piece of paper…

All business owners want (your clients) results, results, results…

You’ve been brainwashed if you think it is qualifications…

Of course if you want a “job” you’ll need to play the game of getting a piece of paper, but even then only in some industries.

If you want to be your own boss and create your own legacy forget the certification and start servicing clients already.
