Hi people and entrepreneurs!

I'm a new member here, from Spain.

And would like to ask you an advice because I'm 23 and I need some advice from older entrepreneurs on here.

Just telling you my short story.

I did high school as a technician and started working part-time while in school at age of 16 in a company as technician.

Then after high school, at age of 18 while I was really excited, I got into computer engineering college.

I was excited as I always played with computers security, electronics (but not advanced programming).

Then after one year of computer engineering college I was stuck, depressed and dropped out.

So for like 7-8 months I did random jobs like waiter, pizza delivery man and so on.

All those jobs were S**t and with really low pay with insane working hours.

Then I decided to get back to college at age of 20 and got back studying computer engineering again from start.

While in college again, I've discovered internet marketing, affiliate marketing, how Funnel works and started reading so much stuff and also the Millionaire fastlane and other business/sales/marketing books.

It was like I've discovered Gold lol.

Also I've discovered how to make money with craiglist flipping or reselling and it's not difficult, I got some money doing that.

So now I'm still in college at age of 23 (should already had finished) and I'm quite confused.

I see I can learn so much stuff on my own reading books of great people.

I'm bored going to classes, also If all goes well, I should finish college in one year (or worst case two years left).

Also I don't know why I don't use neither 30 minutes of my time to focus studying for exams.

Yesterday I was building a sales funnel on clickfunnel for a client I've pitched in Spain instead of studying for my exams..

It really makes me happy and excited to know more and do more.

And I've realized I HATE the computer/electronics engineering field (cannot keep doing computer programming) because I want to become a great business/sales mans (maybe I should have studied business degree don't know).

In this case asking you an advice on here entrepreneurs:

should I stick engineering college or just dropout and learn on my own?

I feel like I've wasted 5 YEARS OF MY LIFE because of my "indecision" mentality. I have this indecision since one year and I've told myself that it's enough: it's time to make a decision and commit to it.

I write my goal every day and it's to become a great marketer and sales/business man having multiple businesses (online and offline) while travelling the world and have freedom.

College seems so different from my long term goals.

So I'm sorry if my message is quite long but I'd like to ask you:

what would you do at 23 years old in this case?

Thanks for your help fellow entrepreneurs.

Hi people and entrepreneurs!
what would you do at 23 years old in this case?
Thanks for your help fellow entrepreneurs.
I didn't think I'd ever use my education -- and I have 4 college degrees plus thousands of hours of professional training and 40+ years of experience. I have used all of it at the most usual moments and in unexpected situations. You're almost there. Finish you're college -- since you can, and do your business stuff on the side. You have a whole lifetime in front of you to set the world on fire with your brilliance.

Agreed. I was getting these feeling a few months ago. School was getting in the way of setting up a business. But, I was graduating so I focused on finishing. It's nice to use a job to build money up for your business plans.
