It does not matter if you do not have a degree.
It does not matter if you do not have the money.
It does not matter if no one still care, eventually they will.
There are so many resources out there (even too much) that you need to get started right away.
Unplug the TV, shut your door and get started already! There is too much to gain, you’d be foolish to let the wolf pack catch up with you. Get the edge, now.
