Dropping out of college and starting a business.
I started college in 2014 and wasn’t dedicated to a certain degree, but business was always an interest, so I decided to take entrepreneurship classes and prerequisites. At the end of 2015, I decided to drop out, I was selling self-published books on Amazon’s direct publishing service.
The serious prerequisites were coming up and I knew I wasn’t committed.
What I learned in the two years of college.
I learned that when I cared and was engaged with the classes, I passed with flying colors, however, when I didn’t care and wasn’t interested, I passed with C’s.
I came to realise the C’s didn’t mean I wasn’t smart, it just meant that my heart wasn’t in it.
