I have been trying to be mindful of what I let enter you because our hearts is often the leader in what we do and feel and think, etc. in this life. I want to believe in the things that can and will make us better humans. I never want to stereotype type anyone. I have a question for you—those who get the opportunity to read this posting. Are you a professional? What makes you a professional? Is what you do for living considered professional work? I once had a supervisor who said that a person is not considered a professional if he or she does not have a Master’s Degree. Of course, I did not believe that, so I chose to address the comment by asking: What about a nurse”? My supervisor’s response was, “Oh, that’s different.” I then, asked, “What about a police office”? “Oh, that’s different.” I went on an asked her about a few other occupations, and each time I got the same answer. I do remember I included men in the military, and CEOs. I could have given her a long list to make my point. Having a Master’s Degree or higher should never be the sole gauge to qualify a person as a ‘professional.’ There are many positions in the world at which people work that make them a professional—without a Master’s Degree.
Good point. Eight US presidents never went to college and some only had some college. Who would dare say that they were not professionals? The same would and does hold true for many, many other professionals, including business owners and those congressmen and senators with a Bachelor’s Degree or less, etc., etc. Enough said.
Don’t forget the eight presidents of the US who dropped out of college or the founders of some of the largest companies in the world such as Microsoft, Dell, and Oracle. And what about the mass amount of small business owners and CEOs.
