Being a school dropout is not something to be ashamed of. Several well-known entrepreneurs and business leaders who dropped out of college and went on to achieve great success include Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft; Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder of Facebook; Michael Dell, the founder of Dell; Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of Twitter; Larry Ellison, the co-founder of Oracle; and Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple. These individuals have all achieved significant financial success and made a significant impact in their respective industries, despite not completing a college degree.

It is understandable that some people may feel ashamed or embarrassed about dropping out of college, as there is often a societal expectation that finishing college is a necessary step to success. However, it is important to remember that college is not the only path to success, and there are many successful people who have dropped out of college and achieved great things.

One reason why dropping out of college may not be something to be ashamed of is that it is not necessarily an indicator of a person’s intelligence or potential. There are many factors that can contribute to someone’s decision to drop out of colleges, such as financial issues, personal circumstances, or a lack of fit with the academic environment. These factors may have nothing to do with a person’s intelligence or ability to succeed in their chosen field.

Additionally, there are many successful people who have dropped out of college and gone on to achieve great things.

Sir Richard Branson is a British entrepreneur and business magnate who is best known as the founder of the Virgin Group, a conglomerate of more than 400 companies. Born in 1950, Branson dropped out of school at the age of 16 and started his first business, a magazine called Student, which he ran from the basement of a church.

Over the years, Branson has built the Virgin Group into a global brand, with ventures in sectors such as music, aviation, and hospitality. One of his most successful ventures is Virgin Atlantic, an airline that he founded in 1984. He has also invested in and supported numerous charitable causes through the Virgin Group, including efforts to combat climate change and promote social justice.
