Everything takes time...
Getting your bachelor's degree takes another 4 years.
Getting your master's degree will take you another 1 to 2 years on top of that.
And when you're done after almost 20 years of education, what do you get?
Well, depending on the country you're living in, a few hundred dollars up to a few thousand dollars BEFORE tax.
And no matter in which country you live, it will always be just about enough to cover your basics, which of course can differ from country to country.
So why do you think that when you're out on your own, when you're trying to build and create your own stuff that you'll be able to make it in the first year? Or the second year? Why would you make it in grade 1? Or in grade 2?
Here's the truth...
Nothing you learn in school, business school or university will prepare you for what's to come when you're out on your own.
All you learn there is to manage. But not to create. Everything you learn there will help you to be a good employee. Which is totally fine by the way if that's what you want to be.
But the things you learn there have absolutely nothing to do with being an entrepreneur. It has nothing to do with being out on your own. With creating your own job.
Here's how it'll most likely look like...
In year one you're mostly going to experiment, fail a lot and do a lot of different things. You won't be making any money.
In year two you're still going to fail at mostly everything you do. But you'll fail faster and learn a lot faster. And hopefully also implement the learnings a lot faster. You'll still not be making any money.
In year three you'll start making some money. Enough money to survive? I don't know. It depends on where you live, how your cost structure looks like and how flexible you are.
So what happens in year 4?
I don't know. I just entered year 4...
