Mike Rowe is a man that wears many hats. He is the voice of shows like 'The Deadliest Catch," and hosts the hit show "DIrty Jobs," and is also a spokesperson for Ford Motor Company as well.  How did he get so successful? He didn't take someone's advice.

Mike Rowe explains in a great piece on the Glenn Beck Show that he thinks millions of students are getting bad advice by going to major Universities and challenged the notion that you need a four year degree to be successful.

“We’re lending money we don’t have, to kids who will never be able to pay it back, for jobs that no longer exist,” said Rowe.  Rowe went on to say that the four letter word that was never allowed in his home growing up was "debt." Rowe discusses conversations he had with his guidance counselors and how he still uses it as motivation today.
