Education isn’t just about a degree. You don’t need a piece of paper to be successful. Be a lifelong learner, ask questions, listen to podcasts, attend seminars, and be intentional about learning. – Will Manzaneras
The way business is always changing and evolving is why it is so important to continuously learn. This can be done in a number of ways. However, during this conversation, Cassie and I dive into the show being named a best podcast for business students and tips for young professionals. There is so much value in podcasts and practical experience alongside formal education. Students need to proactively seek opportunities to work or volunteer with businesses so they can learn from professionals.
Today’s students are more eager to learn and ask insightful questions. This really has set them apart from previous generations. The relevance of formal education in today’s business world has also changes. A degree alone doesn’t guarantee success and young professionals are proving it. Practical experience and a mindset of entrepreneurship are just as important.
I’ve seen firsthand how podcasts can help entrepreneurs and business students alike. In fact, we are celebrating the podcast’s recognition as a top 20 best podcast for students. This honor validates our mission to help business students of all ages.
