Well the question is simple College or IM ?
Lately I have been thinking about it. The thing is that I'm just 18 y.o., doing internet marketing for almost 2 years, and at the moment I am making around 3.5k - 4k/month. The thing is that my parents are really strict, they have their own principles. I'm still in High School, it's my senior year, and my parents are ordering me to go to College, while in the meantime I want to do internet marketing full-time. The worst thing is that they have planned my life already without even me knowing it, they already know what I will do, they have already made contacts where I will work after the college and so on. While I love my parents and respect them, but this time I am completely against them.
It's just that my IM business is about to go to next level. My ultimate goal is to earn 30k/month from IM. I really LOVE it, I haven't had such a passion for anything in my life. I love every single aspect of it. I can talk, think, write about IM 25/8. But then again, I have this feeling that everyone around me has already planned my life for me. Everyone expects that I'll got some fancy education, get a nice office job, get a wife, get some kids, buy a house, pay the loan for the next 30 years, and retire at 65. I have plans to start a family later in my life, but only when I can fully support them with everything.
My parents know how much I make money online, my parents know exactly what I do online to make money, I have showed them every bit of my business to them, yet they still want me to quit it. I'll be honest, my grades aren't that good in school, because I'm obsessed with my business. This means that to get in a nice college I need good grades in High School, to get good grades in high school, I need fully to focus on my studies, which means that I'll lose my business forever. It's really eating me from inside that nobody believes me that I can do it. I am totally surrounded by the "you can't do it" people.
It's really hard, sometimes I just get this idea in my head maybe I should just leave my cell phone on the table and leave without saying anything to anyone. The worse thing is that still my parents think that I am just wasting my time with internet marketing and I should join the holy rat race for life.
I've already told them that it's my life, I will have to live it, and I will have to deal with consequences of my actions. I want to live my own life, my own dreams, I want to reach my own dreams, and live them fully. Too bad that 9 - 5 is not my dream.
Ohhh.... feel so much better now. Sometimes I feel that Warrior Forum somehow is an group therapy, where you can share everything, and it really helps.
All I want to ask - has anyone experienced this ? How to deal with this ?
Sorry for my English, it's just not my mother tongue.
