A friend of minds told me the difference between going to and Ivy League school and a Big 10 school is that when you go to a Big 10 school, you go their to start a business. When you go to an Ivy League school, you go their to start an industry.

so maybe its not realistic for some of us as much as we would like, but its possible that it can be for the next batch of BHM juniors. 


The next generation is going to be just as disillusioned with this whole "everyone can be a location independent world traveling entreprenurial freelancing hipster" movement as we are with the "get good grades so you can go to college and just get some loans and it'll all be worth it because you'll get a job" movement. They're both unsustainable.

But it won't really matter because honestly the gap between the richest and the poorest  is now a chasm and the next generation will literally be slaving and/or standing on bread lines...and that's if they're lucky.

I believe everyone has entrepreneurial spirit. Everyone has had an idea that could very well be marketable and useful and give good financial results. But not everyone has the patience, the inclination to try and to sacrifice, the strength to deal with upsets, and most of all...not everyone has the opportunity or monetary freedom.< id="adlesse_unifier_magic_element_id" style="display:none;">

And even if one had all that, timing is everything.

That means he isn't good with managing a business. Or money.
It doesn't mean others can't do it.
My dog's vet is black and he has a business for over 30 years. He bought someone's else vet practice with a partner, then the partner retired or they went separate ways but he kept the practice and is doing well.

He has in one of the examination rooms an article from a newspaper that interviewed him 10 years ago or so, and he told the reporter that to keep his business he not only need to give outstanding care to the animal but he has to offer good customer service to the owner.

It's easy to open a business (as long as you have money of course). Anyone is an entrepreneur. But few know how to give good customer service.
How many times have you been to a store where the people didn't care to help you with anything, didn't smile and couldn't even greet you when you walked in?

i didn't say others couldn't do it. i said it's not for everyone. the red in your post are some of the reasons why it aint for everyone IMO.

I think most people have the passion to start their own business, however very few have the education, busy savvy, and drive to do so.
