Does Knowledge triumph Passion? or does Passion triumph Knowledge?

I live in Canada and was born and raised in Ontario, ever since I was young my parents knew that I would do something extraordinary. I had a mind for the big stuff and I was always eager to find my true passion. I loved to make robots and today I want to build one of the leading business companies when I hit the work force. I have a love for technology and I hope to make my mark on the world some day.

Sadly my Passion has been Triumph by Knowledge, I come from a middle class family and my parents are eager to get me on the work force but gives me no time to plan a head for the future. Universities and Colleges are looking for Knowledge and pay for it but Passion seems to be a forgotten art.

How can I get the education I need as well as the networking necessary to make a leading business company? Where and how can I create the business I want with the little capital I own?

Please leave me your contact information if you would like to discuss this matter in more detail, thank you for your collaboration and I hope to hear from you all very soon.

  • May 30 2012: without passion there is no motivation to do something, but to do something without knowing what your doing is stupidity. They are two things that need each other to function.
