When I first started this post, I started searching the internet for famous homeschooled people, but it was really hard and I was afraid that some of my information was wrong. I found people who were homeschooled for their whole life while others dropped out of college (Uncolleged) because they were making millions (e.g., Bill Gates). What about those people from our generation who, if I told my child they were homeschooled, might really impress them?

It doesn’t matter if you send your kids to “normal school”, boarding school, homeschool, Unschool, road school, or my new favorite Google school. Inspire your kids to be amazing, take the time to find out what they love to do, and encourage those young minds to ask questions, don’t take no for an answer, and keep pursuing their dreams so one day they can become a Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), David Karp (Tumblr), Mike Hudack (Blimp. TV), or George Forman (boxer).
