Diverse Opinions from Netizens
As anticipated, Maphorisa’s post on X (formerly Twitter) elicited diverse reactions from other users. The prevailing sentiment was that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach in life, and what works for one person might not work for another. Here is what other users had to say:
Do both, go to school get your degree and start a side hustle as well, do everything.
At the end of the day, you are gonna need people to work in your business. Just decide which lane you want.
In life, there is no manual. You can be successful without school, and you can also be successful with school.
Lol there are employees that make more bags than you. To get millions, it will depend on how valuable you are to the corporation.
..I.e , they went to school. Took a great deal of advanced mathematics- something you wouldn’t learn from a “studio session”. If not for them, they wouldn’t be any twitter to show off your “wealth”. Also, you wouldn’t even know what a gear is. Good like drifting your fancy BMW
