I started my first venture while still in high school. We started off thinking that we will work in marketing regular food services to college grads who had a very bad alternative to food in colleges but if we were marketing we had no control over quality as a result we thought of doing everything ourselves and overexpanded ourselves.
Without getting anywhere we had to close and that's how I graduated from school , after action faking for an year.
I am wiser and more pessimistic than I was earlier and hope to learn something from all of you people here. I plan to study accounting in school and also manage to learn to code. I think this industry is going to go through a much transition in coming time and I hope to be a positive part of this transition which may involve teaching , automation and cheaper e-companies for people who work global and want to save taxes.
Thanks MJ for your book and wisdom.

You only fail if you haven't learnt anything from your failure. In reality, it is a lesson.

You are young. You can pick yourself up my friend. Dust off. And on you go to the next venture wiser.
