The Ability to Respond

You can choose to operate with self-agency.

The School-Then-Career Fallacy
You don’t need to go to school to build a career.

Learn by doing. (This isn’t new.)
Learn by doing projects for existing companies. (This isn’t new either.)
Learn by doing projects for existing companies before they ask. (This is new-ish.)”
