Hello Fastlaners!

I'm in so important point in my life and I really need your advice. Here is my background - I was going slowlane for last 7 months until I read MJ books. I did a gap year in order to get to the best law school in my country. Today my work came to the end. I got very good grades except one exam, which will unfortunately won't allow me to get into law school. In my country public collages are free, but it is very hard to get into. I can still go on management (not top uni, but still pretty good), psychology or international relationships, but here is the thing.

I don't want to go to collage as a "b plan". Studying will be necessary, because it gives me many tax benefits, but I'm kind of scared of how it can effect my entrepreneurship.

Now I do digital marketing and website development for my friends start-up in order to gain some money, experience and important skills for my business. It can also give me an opportunity for passive income, because I can do my own philosophy course for high schoolers (They do courses school).

I could also go into private college with some business studies, but I don't really want - it takes money and I'm sceptical.

How would you enter fastlane if you were on my position?

College is not mutually exclusive with the fastlane. You can do both.

Public college is free for you and will also yield you tax benefits. That makes this decision easy - go to (public) college.

Management, psychology, or international relations, it really doesn't matter - all three would be fine and tie into entrepreneurship, but management might offer the best opportunities to land a slowlane job to support yourself after graduation.

Doors will open for you in the future, unknowingly to you, because you have a degree.

You can continue to do digital marketing and website development for your friend's start-up simultaneously.
