No matter how much your friends and family pressures you to get your own MBA, the reality is that attending business school and getting this degree is not really necessary in order to achieve success as a bookie entrepreneur.
Sure, to get this degree can be a great massage for your ego, but the reality is that most of the stuff that is taught at the classes to obtain an MBA, you can learn on your own.
In fact, an MBA is a bit overrated, and if you pursue it, it can be (or not) a sign that you are giving up on your entrepreneurial dreams of becoming the CEO of your own bookie start-up.
If you feel that you are ready to start your own bookie entrepreneur career, then going for it right away is the best decision that you can take.
On the other hand, if you put your start-up dreams on hold because you want to attend to school in order to get your so desired MBA degree, chances are that you will feel frustrated and miserable during the whole process (or for the most part of it).
Also, if you make it through school and get your degree, you may even forget why you got there in the first place: your dreams of becoming a bookie.
And instead, it is likely that you will feel inclined to accept a consulting job at a company where you will need to work for someone else. In other words, the chances of becoming your own boss are set to disappear.
Once you Succeed, Get your MBA
If you have a genuine desire for knowledge, then getting an MBA is a good idea.
But, timing is very important, and by this, what I mean is that you should consider getting your MBA once you have achieved success as a bookie entrepreneur.
This is because once you have accomplished your bookmaking entrepreneurial dreams, you will feel more liberated, and thirsty for more knowledge.
Alternatives to an MBA
Even if you find success as a sports betting agent, you may not have the time to attend to school to get your master in business administration, but there are some good alternatives.
Instead of going to college to get this degree, you can spend as much time as you can reading business books and white papers, going to conferences, talking to experts, checking case studies, etc.
Indeed, by learning as much as you can on your own, you can constantly retain a competitive advantage over your competitors.
Another alternative to going to school to get an MBA is to hire graduates whom have gone through the whole process and have learned all that is to be learned concerning this particular degree.
You can either provide these individuals with specific tasks, or you can get them to teach you what they know, or even a combination of both.
