You don't need

"When you have a brilliant idea, nobody is going to ask to see your diploma, Gerry says. You don't need a four-year college degree if you have burning ambition or a great plan."

You don't need a four year degree, period. The system in place wants you to have one, but you, yourself, do not need a degree. Formal 'education' is a special interest.
