It is kinda funny, you go through a lot of work trying to get a job and for what, to let someone else run your life?

After all that you might as well start your own business because you know more about the business then they do. The only thing you are missing is being incorporated. Most businesses are started on much less, sure most new businesses fail but since you have done more to get ready then 90% of them you should survive and thrive.
