SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE
There are two kinds of knowledge, general and specialized. General knowledge, no matter how great the quantity or variety it might be, is of little use in the accumulation of money. The faculties of the great universities posses the aggregate of practically every form of general knowledge known to civilization. Knowledge  will not attract money unless it is organized and intelligently directed through practical plans of action to the definite end of the accumulation of money. Knowledge is only potential power.
Specialized Knowledge is among the most plentiful, and the cheapest forms of service which may be had! If you doubt this, consult the payroll of any university.
It pays to know how to purchase knowledge. First, decide on the sort of specialized knowledge you require and the purpose for which it is needed.
Focus  on your major purpose in life, the goal toward which you are working will help determine what knowledge you need.
Your next move requires that you have accurate information concerning dependable sources of knowledge.
The one's important of these are:
(a) One’s own experience and education
(b) Experience and education available through cooperation of others (Master Mind Alliance)
(c) Colleges and Universities
(d) Public Libraries (Through books and periodicals in which may be found all the knowledge organized by civilization)
(e) Special Training Courses (Through night schools and home study schools in particular.)
Knowledge has no value except that which can be gained from its application toward some worthy end.
If you contemplate taking additional schooling, first determine the purpose for which you want the knowledge you are seeking, then learn where this particular sort of knowledge can be obtained, from reliable sources.
Schooling does  little more than  put one in the way of learning how to acquire practical knowledge.One of the most reliable and practical sources of knowledge available to those who need specialized schooling, is the night schools operated in most large cities. The correspondence schools give specialized training anywhere the U. S. mails go on all subjects that can be taught by the extension method. One advantage of home study training is the flexibility of the study program which permits one to study during spare time. Another stupendous advantage of home study training (if the school is carefully chosen), is the fact that most courses offered by home study schools carry with them generous privileges of consultation which can be of priceless value to those needing specialized knowledge. No matter where you live, you can share the benefits. Anything acquired without effort, and without cost is generally unappreciated, often discredited; perhaps this is why we get so little from our marvelous opportunity in public schools.
