Should I stay in school or run a business right now?

I've been in school for a very long time, and I am at the point where I can't stand school anymore. I have a bachelor degree in sociology, but I dont like the field, so I'm going back to do pharmacy. Pharmacists have stable jobs, and this is what interests me in the first place.
At the same time, my passion lies in the business world. I want to earn a lot of money one day, and I have some ideas on how to do this. But I still need to do some research.

No, I do not want to open a pharmacy. I prefer selling something else beside medicines.

What should I do? Should I stay in school or run a business? aGGhhh

Hi, if I could paraphrase the first answerer's quotation, the second part might be this:

"Self-employment *could* make a fortune!"

Not as guaranteed high income as being in a high-ranking job such as Pharmacy or Business Management, but potentially much more.

I see your options as these :-

(1) study & practise Pharmacy
(2) study BM, then go S/E
(3) go S/E straightaway.

(1) is the safest route.
(2) is the wisest route.
(3) is the riskiest route.

Although (2) is the "wisest" route, as it gives you an academic understanding of business (albeit more 'corporate'), and enables you to eventually enjoy your passion, it is a long route. And in entrepreneurship, timing is everything. Right now might be your only chance to create your niche.

Ultimately the decision is yours, of course, but hopefully we've shown you all your options....
