So far I am a couple of months into my second year of college (U.S.) and I have been working on a business with a friend. At first, I thought I would be able to run the company at the same time I went to class, but as we have expanded, my time for school has decreased dramatically. we went to our first convention to market our product and made upwards of $50k in pre-orders in the first two hours that we were talking to people, so we know that there are people who would be willing to buy our product. I already own a relatively successful photography company that has just enough business to keep me busy on the weekends, but starting this business is eating up all of the remaining time I have leftover.

The pros that I see about ending my semester early and dropping out are:

My friend would feel like we are equally invested in the company (he already dropped out)

I would have more free time ( I feel like I am constantly overwhelmed by running two businesses and attending a full class schedule)

The cons:

I would lose my scholarship (8k per semester)

My parents really want me to finish school

I lose out on the “college experience” (I am 20)

I am fairly torn at this point because I have a great
