Im 25, I live at home with a big family, (parents, grandparents, uncle, brother just moved out though). I have a semi-successful website that made 32k last year. I have big dreams and always talk about the next big ideas, but I rarely start projects I get excited about. And projects I do start take a while to get going and lack momentum to get them done quickly and vigorously. I have just graduated college with a B.A. in Biology, I didn't have the patience to stick with the B.S. plus I knew I didn't see a career in Biology as I am not much of an academic type. I live in California, so $32k is OK but not great, although I made that all on the side while going to college full time so that makes it better. Now I'm faced with the question of what I'm going to do with my life. My mom keeps asking me when I'm getting a job, and I keep telling her "Remember? I don't want a job, I want to own a self-running business." She goes OK like what? Then I say, "Exactly.." I mean I have ideas that I want to try but they are out of my comfort zone. Also some ideas are going to need professional planning for them to work out. In my mind I have ideas that could make me or anyone who starts it rich, but I just don't know where or how to begin because all I know is IM, and I'm only decent to above average in that. I know if I give up on my dreams that I will be giving up on myself so I'm not going to ever do that. However, I realize that I need to move out, I need to get my life going and I need to do it somehow! Can I get some thoughts from people who have been there done that? A kick in the ass, or some words of encouragement? Fuck, I hate when people put doubts in my mind. All this is coming from my Mom who unfortunately was layed off from her high paying corporate AT&T job a few years ago. She wants me to climb the corporate ladder to learn skills and to be able to relate to other who work day to day.
