I completely agree with your thought. We don't need a college degree anymore to attain our dream jobs or careers. Be it Programming or Finance/Economics/Business Management or Humanities , Thanks to Coursera , edX , HBX online (Harvard Business School Online Platform) , Udemy , ALISON and other Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC's) platform and along with that Networking on LinkedIn one can definitely build a sustainable career in their respective field, provided if one doesn't lose motivation while they are on the self education journey :)
Even I want to be a published writer someday. But I am not wasting time getting a degree in English or MFA in Creative Writing. I am working on building a portfolio by collaborating with people from all over the world. It's all about being consistent with your writing and promoting it among your circle , friends and family by collaborating with individuals. Success will come eventually I am positive about that.
Thank you for sharing this piece. and your perspective.
