be me
18 y/o just finished school, now off to college
wants to be an entrepreneur
spent my entire teenage thinking that graduating in finance would be a good idea.
finds out that finance jobs aren't entrepeneur compatible as you work 9 to 6 and have no free time to create your business.
find out after graduation you have literally no skills because it's not a STEM and you can't innovate if you have no knowledge of how to create things.

What degree would you choose at the age of 18 to help you be an entrepeneur Veeky Forums?
In other words, what's the most useful degree for an entrepeneur?

no degree.
if you must insist on wasting time in school, get that MBA.

but seriously, go work at some dude's gas station. Learn how to run a gas station better than anyone else. Manage the gas station. Buy the fucking gas station. Buy more gas stations. Make your millions.

it's not that hard. 99% of entrepreneurs don't invent a damn thing. We make millions being the 37th gas station in town.

a degree isn't some golden ticket, no degree gets anyone anything except a job interview or two.

entrepreneurs start and grow businesses.

if you don't know how to manage a business you're going to have a hell of a time starting and growing them for a living. MBA can teach you a bit about that.

real world experience is usually more valuable though.

If that's the message I sent then I'm sorry, didn't mean it. All I'm saying is that I kinda see BA as not a good degree, as I'd rather learn something practical like CS (where you get to learn how to code) abd research Business Adm stuff in my free time and learn that on my own as it seems to me a more simple subject than learning a practical skill.
I want your guys opinion on what would be the best way to increase my chances, if you could choose any degree.

OP, from what it looks like, you are daydreaming, romanticising the idea of being an entrepenuer,

i say this because you don't seem to have a 100% defined idea/plan. i also say this because i felt the exact same way in HS until right about now (19 right now)

basically what i learned from this thread is "if it doesn't make money now, if it doesn't make money if you try it instead of dreaming it, then it isn't going to make money ever."

@Evil_kitten
1. You don't need a degree to be an entrepreneur. I know kids that went to school for "entrepreneurship" or some other dumb course (the course is literally called that). It teaches you nothing.
2. Finance won't teach you much. Finance is about cash flows and deciding which is the best investment.
3. If you want to make your own products and want them to be tech based I would go with CS or Engineering simply because it will teach you how to be logical and lots of other stuff like communication skills and good interpersonal shit. I know it sounds stupid because engineers are typically autistic losers, but, when I was in my first year they had a massive emphasis on teaching how to work with a team and other stuff like that. It's like a toastmasters for teamwork.
4. What the fuck kind of business do you want to own/create? Just saying you want to own assets and sell products isn't helping. No point in getting a CS degree or Aerospace engineering degree if you want to be a clothing manufacturing. If anything, you will probably just need to budget correctly once you saved up a few tens of thousands and get a loan from the bank

I want your opinion guys.

Strategy is the most important, but thats MBA level, and theres a reason for that.

You don't need a degree to start a company though, there are a shitton of examples of people starting from scratch and no serious education. Also, you can just read the textbooks yourself to learn the material, you don't need to pay 15k/year. You can save the 60k and put it towards your business instead

You won't though

First of all, thank you for the answer.
Secondly, sorry I didn't make it too cleae, I am looking to create internet services related with banking, crowdfunding, and money in general without going too much in detail about my ideas. I've always loved investing and business related things, thats why my initial plan was to be a finance graduate. But then something made me change my mind, and that was the fact that learning finance wont help me at all at improving my value, should I create a business of any kind. That's why I came here, to ask for your guys' opinion as I feel Veeky Forums guys think alike.

If what I'm saying is romaticising, then what should I be saying?
it's not what you're saying, it's what you're doing. test out your product/service before you invest dicks of money into the final product. basically the only flaw in your plan is you haven't tested it out numerous of times before taking the big serious leap of making it into a real business.

Also what have you done since you were 18
i've been trying to learn how people think and what they think. in over a year i got it down pretty good, i do this because i want to understand the easiest and laziest way to make someone addicted to me/my product/my affiliates.

I'm interested if you made any mistakes
i think the biggest mistake i made was that i always thought i had to be like the people who were in charge of me. my bosses are cucks, i always thought i had to give up a certain standard of self respect to get to their position but it isn't like that at all.

Thanks for the answer.
First of all, my projects are all in the "idea" phase. I havent invested a single penny into any of my ideas yet. I have pitched to my teachers and family of my ideas though and though some don't work, I have gotten a couple of exceptional ideas, that could work. Obviously, this doesnt mean shit as if I do nothing, everything is in vain.
been trying to understand how people think so I could sell my products more easily
That's quite smart, but did you stop your studies/ jobs to spend an entire year learning that or are you doing something meanwhile?

That's quite smart, but did you stop your studies/ jobs to spend an entire year learning that or are you doing something meanwhile?
i study people where i work, i first worked as a server, to understand the customer, then i worked at mcdonalds as a cook, to understand the workers and the management, and now i work as a dishwasher only part time, trying to understand what the boss is thinking, which is actually really fucking hard to do because he is old as fuck and will not let himself let up for anything.

girlDog
girlDog

@Lunatick
is there anyway you can test your ideas in real life?
Yes, there is, I could easily do a survey for example to see if there is demand for it. I could also check for trends to see if anything matches. Since my ideas are mostly "service" based, the only way to test them out since they don't exist would be to start them and see what would happen. If demand matched the service and people showed that they want it, then it would be proven. As I said, it's all in my head (and my notebook) and I havent actually done anything.

Also, I dobt think that thing of studying people is going to help you much as people vary a lot and the way your boss behaves is one of a billion possible ways a person can behave, as you cannot stereotipise your boss for all bosses.

Software Engineering.
Hands down best option.

You can learn the languages and all the other shit in your own time, but, if your business doesn't work out, you will still have a good portfolio of stuff you've made that you can show Software companies as well as the qualification necessary to work for software companies.

Also, with you wanting to work in the finance world. Maybe minor in finance or double degree SoftE+Finance.

E.g. If you were making a superannuation model as one of your products. You would need to speak to someone working as a financial advisor that specialises in the super as they would know all the ifs, buts and loopholes etc when it comes to super because you sure as hell are going to get stuff wrong and the internet isn't always right on this, alot of it is outdated believe it or not and different websites even have different tax brackets.

I've written a code for a finance place before and I had to constantly ask them about the specifics of process I was automating because I didn't understand it. btw, I'm CompE that just knows a few languages.

tldr; softE, but, setting up softE with a niche will be tricky as you will have to understand the intricate little details of what you are actually programming unless you have people from finance willing the help you out.

Yes. You usually work in your chosen industry for several years so you understand it, then go to management so you get the business side and the connections.

Then maybe you'll start your own company or buy your boss out or some such thing. Even then I think most business owners fail pretty quickly.

It's risky and most people don't have the stomach for it. You wake up each day and bet everything you own that you're not an idiot. It's not a great bet.

No, just because Finance implies you want to work for a fund of some sort or start your own.

Unless you want to do that, don't get a degree in Finance. Also, don't go for finance if you don't go to a top school for the major. For example, it you aren't going to at least Indiana University or Michigan or better, do not major in Finance (unless you really like it but then you shouldn't have a problem transferring to those school after Freshman year).

Hate to break it to you user, but as a restaurantfag, going from server to cook to dishwasher is like going backwards. The successful entrepreneur would get promoted. Others would recognize his talent, drive, and leadership and give him more responsibility. Eventually after years of hard work he might have enough experience and connections to go out on his own and "start a buisness". The skills required to be a successful wagecuck aren't that different from entrepreneur skills.

@TurtleCat

What kind of product do you want to sell?

Not looking to sell products, but to sell services. Internet based would be the the best in my opinion.

How do you want to sell it?

Through the internet, more especifically through a website I'd have to create. The big problem is I don't know how to code, only how to make shitty wordpress sites, with shitty URLs.

How big is your market?

I would market towards future business creators and other entrepreneurs, and people who want to make shit happen ("do"ers, not talkers).

Can you capture the market?

If I manage to somehow create my website, get rid of possible law related stuff that gets in the way (because it would have to do with people's money), I believe I could very well catch the atenttion of a lot of people.

How big can you grow before competition and inefficiency kicks in?
What is your exit plan, sell or keep?

I think if I could pull this off, the business could grow exponentially and since it's money related, I believe I could easily liquidate it when I was done with it, since from the research I've done, no one has done this, and the demand for it would be relatively high. Obviously, this is all speculation.

School teaches us that if you have good grades and are an intelligent guy, you should work for the big companies a live a "safe" life aka a life of mediocrity, stuck to a job which you don't own nor have a word on what to do next. They format us to be wagecucks and jobcucks, and that's why only few have the balls to start shit and become entrepreneurs. They teach us to think their way, not to think outside of the box. Once you realize that all the fags in your class are losers, that most people don't live, but survive, that the only way to be free is to be the driver of your own life, you notice that the few who freed themselves from everything were entrepreneurs.

I would recommend getting a degree so you have something to fall back on if things don't work out.

Look at the job market and get an idea of what you want to earn and what interests you. If I was 18 again I would look into becoming a business analyst or IT consultant.

You can be successful without qualifications but some industries will be effectively closed off to you. And you will have to work extremely hard, possibly dealing with multiple businesses failing before one takes off.

As someone else said, gaining experience brings you a knowledge base and contacts. It makes it easier to spot the niche and provide a solution to the problems in your industry.

That sounds like a good plan but the only problem is that, even though I don't see myself as someone that gives up easily, if I get a degree that I enjoy (Finance for example), I'm afraid of getting comfy with the job and not moving my ass, because that happens with a lot of people. They have great ideas, then get a job and get comfy with it, stalling all their entrepreneurial plans because of the fear of receiving less money than when they were in a job. Also, there's the problem that being a finance major won't help me at running a business (except keeping things afloat, but anyone can do that without a degree). Now the argument that you could use is "No degree will help you" in which I have to reply to you that there are degrees that give you physical on top of theorical advantage for you business (learning to code from majoring in CS for example).
And you will have to work extremely hard, possibly dealing with multiple businesses failing before one takes off.

at the average wage of a gas station attendant, it would take 97 years of pay, before taxes and living expenses, to be able to afford to open and run a gas station for 1 year

if you can't make manager in less than 97 years you shouldn't even be thinking of running a business.

I've never had a job where I didn't make management in less than a year. If this isn't you, it's time to consider other career options.

Are you from a well-off family? I ask because your post might delude some poorfag into thinking he can raise the capital for a business using his mom's disability checks and an original holographic Charizard card as collateral for a loan.

Entrepreneur here as well, this is correct.

What you guys and most other people don't understand is that once you figure out how to run one business successfully, you kind of figure out how to apply it to other industries. Every entrepreneur that I know irl either has a few businesses in different industries or flips them.

implying degrees have any value at all right now
May as well go buy one for 100k and save yourself 6 years of your life. Degrees are fucking worthless. Talent has value.

So you have an online store (aka website), and some clothes, but no customers or sales? That isn't a business, that's a warehouse.

18 y/o Senior in HS here, realized I want to pursue entrepreneurship. What is Veeky Forums advice on what I should do from now to graduation to help prepare me for the struggles of being a entrepreneur? From this thread I figured I'd get a part time job and start saving. Also, is it even worth dual enrolling if I don't pursue college? Genuinely appreciate any advice

start a business that doesn't really cost any or much initial capital.

Meet successful guys or women in your area who have bank/successful businesses. Use the internet to find them. Call or shoot a text offering to buy them lunch.

Make sure to tell them you are super young and that you see the nontraditional path as way more interesting.

business owners are always surprised and a bit excited to see a kid that can look past the bullshit. Most are happy to offer advice and guidance as long as you're not going into competition with them.

study law
pick tax law because it earns the most
learn to code just for fun
start an online busines in my last year at the uni
suddenly get a million ideas how to make my money online
wish I picked a job where nobody would miss me if I worked 4 days a week, went home at 5pm or spend a lot of time online
wouldnt mind having more IT knowledge
I would have picked a job as sys admin. There are so many jobs in that field available where I live. And most seem to require minimal productivity. So you can spend time on other things.
