    It's just awesome to know that you can do what you dreamed to do. Even if I will fail I will know that was my decision and I don't give a fuck about what other "normal" people say. When I say normal people I'm reffering to those who wants all in life but no risk. Also, I'm sure that I can't get what I want just with school, internet marketing lifestyle is more than school or any rules. I have to risk my ass, and successfull people from BHW knows this. Hate me, yell at me do what you think. My decision, my consequences, my gain.

    Yes !!! Thank you BHW for being my greatest teacher. Also thank you BHW for awesome people which you have here. People which helped me to build a strong mentality and character. Thank you. Gonna involve all my power in building my future and then I'm gonna give a lot to this community.

    I respect your attitude, fair play.

    But why could you not set down this path once school was completed?

    Good luck, but it is a risky move. Hope you can pull it off

    I'm at high school right now, and next year I'm going to college. It will take 5 years from then to get my masters as computer engineer (not sure if that's the right english translation), but I really hope that I'm earning more than the average pay to fresh engineers by then.
    I wouldn't risk quitting right now, if your business crashes you're pretty much fucked.

    While I respect you for following your own decision, I don't think I would have done the same. I would have at least gone to a community college and got a cheap two-year degree to fall back on. If your IM never takes off, it would be nice to have a second route to take while you are saving fund for another IM project. It is a risk....a big risk.I would have just finished school and then tried it. I'm currently in school to become a RN or a Paramedic. Us "normal" people aren't stupid for going to school and what not. We are just following one BHW/IMs golden rules....Don't put all of your eggs into one basket.

    Quitting school is no different than quitting your job to pursue IM full time. However, most people do this when 1) they lose their full-time job, 2) their full-time job is getting in the way from them expanding their IM venture. Are you already successful enough in IM to a point where you are losing money by being at school?

    Good luck...

    I'm already earning a pretty decent amount right now, and I guess that if I had more spare time I could scale this up a whole bunch, but I guess I don't have the balls to simply quit.

    As a college dropout, I say you definitely did the right thing. What you can learn from experience, mentors and the wealth of information that you can find on sites like this is worth more than what you'll learn in many university classrooms.

    I dropped out when I was 16. I had a really bad reason to, but I eventually worked with a tutor and did very well in my first year of college, which I dropped out of as well.

    I'm 25 now and I make a decent salary working as V.P. Marketing for an internet company. The reason I got here is a combination of luck, smarts and knowing the right people.

    Do I regret dropping out? Not even 5%.

    Personally I believe having a Plan B is basically saying "I'm not really confident my Plan A will work so just to be sure...". When people ask me what's my plan B, I always reply "My plan B is my plan A."

    It wasn't always easy, I had time where I couldn't even leave my home because I had no money and I was lucky to eat because my parents would provide me with food BUT, right now it's going great and I don't regret my decision at all. Good luck OP!

    The Education system is a complete joke. You would learn so much more just being in a library and reading books. I learned more about CSS/HTML in 3 months than what my friends learned in college in one year.

    True.

    I tolerate your decision, imo it's a big mistake though. Sure, dropping out of school doesn't mean automatically that you'll be homeless in the future, of course not. But education definitely increases your chances of living the life you want to live. If things change and your business fails, you're fucked. That pretty much sucks. I hope that you won't regret your decision in a few years.

    Thanks for opinion guys!

    The thing is that I can't lose my time regreting. I'm doing it pretty good right now to give my parents some peace days and I want to scale up, diversify and get bigger. That's not a blind decision and I'm not going to regret anything. I'm serious about my decision and my goals.

    Life is much more than internet marketing and business. I hope you have prepared for them all.

    Respect your decision though. With you all the best!

    Inb4 I sound like your mother.

    You should finish school. It's important to always have a plan B and IM is constantly changing.
    Oh and yeah, school can be boring, but none-the-less you learn very much there.

    Congrats! Some of us just aren't the college-going type. I don't think most of society realizes that, seeing as how they pressure every single child into going to college. Every person learns in a different way, and not everyone does well in a classroom setting.

    I never even attempted to go to college because I couldn't stand the thought of sitting in classrooms for ~4 more years. I work a crappy job right now, but it's tolerable. My IM projects are starting to take off and my goal is to quit my full time job by the end of this year.

    Good luck!
