    Hey guys, i need to make a decision, should complete my education (i'm 16 years old) or should i move over to IM ?
    I'm good at that i make approximately 100$/month just started and not stable income (PPI, Fiverr, PPD...)

    I know i'm still young for this but i just need to get the idea from now.

    Thanks!

    You have to continue your study and do IM only in free time. Once you have completed education you will get lots of time to do IM.

    Bro, this is the age to learn things. get a degree, complete your education first. And then you'll have all the time for IM. But i know, in this age you also have a lot of spare time, so use that to make your edge over IM. Good Luck Bud :)

    complete your education, of course
    IM is just for money, in order to live you need more than just how to make money
    Complete your education can help you get a better job, when you have a better job you can have some money to invest in IM, since like what you said here, your earning is not stable, many things can change in a few year, too risky to drop your school now

    was in the same place 7 yrs ago, decided to drop out of school.

    I regret doing so ...

    Time goes by anyway and after a few yrs you will see your friends graduating and getting degrees and stuff and you will realize that dropping out was a very stupid thing to do, especially cuz you will not be a millionaire in 5 yrs like you think you will, experience speaking here :)

    If you're really good at what you do then you won't have a problem doing both, and it doesn't necessarily mean that you have to be great student, just give your studies enough attention to get by and focus on IM, after a while you will be happy that you hit 2 birds with 1 stone.

    after all, IM means isolation and solitude, don't wast the best yrs of your life in front of a computer screen, yes money is good and one can argue that it's everything, but balance is more important, and a healthy social life is vital as well.

    OMG whatever you do, do NOT drop out to do IM.

    I promise you, you will regret it. As other mentioned just try to learn it in your free time. Even 15 minutes a day on here will help in the long run.

    LOL, I'm selling BHW like it's a weight loss trick.

    I am currently dropping out of university, but that's nothing to do with moving full-time to IM. I have a company, doing well with it, plenty of IM projects and I still am going back to school next fall, just not this one. (Bastards didn't let me drop my law courses to get more business courses :D )

    Education, although important, is only a part of it, OP, you get some good social skills and develop while in school at your age.

    Money, although important, is really secondary once you see how things actually roll in life.

    Since you're so young, focus on the school, and there learn as much as you can about marketing, strategies. There is nothing better than knowing the game. You will have plenty of time to make money.

    My kind advice to do both, Earn some good money while studying and reinvest them once you complete the degree.
    This is the right age to learn and earn... Good luck op

    OP, sounds like you are looking to "escape" something, or just that "school sucks!".

    Not sure what it is, but looking back, I can tell you that all the concerns and issues you thought were important at that age, will seem minor in comparison to what life will bring you later (unless you are into crime, or something equally serious).

    Enjoy your education. If you are so bent on having your own business, getting a degree in business might be up your alley.

    Nobody can take your education away from you, and you cannot "lose" it. It compresses into a short time frame many, many years of experience you would MAYBE get through the "school of hard knocks".

    At this point, with only a year or two to graduation, you should focus on your goals in life, and some high level plans to move in that direction. You are still at the point of exploring your interests, and figuring this stuff out, so no surprise if your specific goals change around. But, the idea is to shoot for something and work towards it. Choose things in your plan that will keep your options open and will open doors for you. Narrow your focus as you go (if you are heading for a degree, firm your choice by the end of your second year at college).

    IM may or may not be a constructive part of your plan, only you can decide. It will be a tradeoff between alternatives available to you (e.g. for earning money) for effort and return.

    Just passing on what I would have liked to have known explicitly at that age.

    Good luck!

    Continue with your education. Quitting at this point for IM would be suicidal.
