Im 21 going to community college taking GE classes and I am realizing that college just isn't for me. I like learning, it's just the whole sit in lecture then take tests just doesn't work well. I am a hands on type of learner, not a study by the books type.

Anyway, my overall goal is to own a business making mens footwear. Now here's the kicker. Technically I don't need to show anyone a degree to own my own business, so would it be a bad decision to drop out of school and persue that?

A major reason why I am contemplating that, I work for my uncle whom already owns a women's footwear company. I've been working here for 6 years already and basically started from the bottom. He wants to teach me and eventually make me the head of marketing. So i actually have a work position that most people go to school to study for.

What are your opinions on this, drop out of school and do some hand on learning within my uncles company, or stay in school and do both? I just don't see any benefit to be taking stupid classes like history and philosophy when it has no relationship with anything I want to do.
