College Life vs. Life in Business











Just to mix things up a bit, and to keep you on your toes, how about now we look at the humorous “dis-similarities” between college life and the life of a business owner?

After formulating the commonalities between college life and life in the real world of business, I started laughing on the inside when the dis-similarities started coming to mind. Of course, some of the dis-similarities aren’t so much the differences as they are 2 sides of the same coin. That being said, you decide…and don’t be surprised if you do in fact laugh out loud. Don’t worry…don’t be embarrassed…they say laughter is good for you.
