Summary of Education ExperienceElliott's tenacity in the classroom was the result of his single mother's strong beliefs in the possibilities of an education . While his mother did attend college, she didn't graduate due to a pregnancy. As a result, Elliott adopted a no-nonsense type of approach toward everything to do with education. As he matured, he began to realize that an education offered much more than book-based knowledge. College students learn to cope with significant social pressures, continuously work under the pressure of deadlines, project management and leadership skills, and knowledge surrounding the best industry practices.
While all of these beneficial traits of an education are attractive, none of them compares to the value of confidence. Undoubtedly, a college education instills the individual with the ability to think outside of the box. In addition, college graduates have the confidence to tackle the really tough issues, which is highly desirable in the professional market. Simply put, Elliott believes the power of confidence can be equated to the difference between the impossible and an achievement.
