The Higher Education Bubble

How important is obtaining a college education to you? Do you believe that a college degree is necessary to attain your goals and dreams? If someone were to offer you 100,000 to bypass college and create your own business instead, would you take it?
This is exactly what Peter Theil the co- founder of PayPal is proposing to do. He plans to offer 20 people $100,000 to launch their own business instead of going to college.  In the article “Peter Theil Warns of America’s Higher Education Bubble,” the idea of higher education being overrated is explored.
If you could receive $100,000 to create your own business right away, what kind of business would it be?
