In this episode, Kallen Diggs talks about how he started out helping people in his community get back to work. He has written a book Reaching the Finish Line for those that are looking for jobs or are not too enthusiastic about the traditional model of going to University before getting a job. He says that you do not need a college degree to have a good life. You can still earn $50k a year being an electrician or a carpenter and not be in debt or losing a few years of wages.

Life is significantly better abroad and if you can combine your studies, work, and fun. You can end up learning better if you simply do the thing you want to learn instead of going to school for it. All his success as well has nothing to do with his college degree. Everything he has done was self-taught and he simply jumped into it to get started.

We were only able to cover a fraction of what's in the book. This is a topic I am very passionate about and am glad that I had such an authority to talk about it as well.
