We both had that "entrepreneurial mindset"
Both wanted to start our own biz's
Both wanted freedom
So I told him I was planning on dropping out and starting my own business online
You need the experience first
How are you gonna start a business with no experience?
I'm gonna graduate, get a job, save up some money, then start something in my 30s
Much more likely to be successful that way
And we left it at that
Had my plan changed?
I just wasn't going to try to convince him of my dreams
If I believe in myself and you don't, who cares?
I don't need you to believe in me for me to believe in me
We made different decisions
Went our own ways
Today he's in his last semester of college, will probably be getting an $80k/year job out of school
Not bad for first year out really
Today I've been out of school for a year
I followed my original plan
Didn't listen to him or anyone else who told me not to
Been hustling 25/8 ever since
I made more last month than he'll make this entire year
I have financial freedom
I do what I want when I want
I have full control over my income
Didn't listen to the naysayers
Smiled and nodded WSP style
And put my head down and fucking HUSTLED
If that ain't some fucking inspiration I don't know what is
