Hey looks like your around 25 years ahead of me! Also from an Asian background MJ talks about that too. The brainwashing starts early in Indian households. Somehow they convince you that you are the solution to their old age all the while thats total BS. Im not against looking after parents but the way they talk about its life and death literally.
Dropshipping isnt a scam but it doesnt fulfill the Control part of the CENTS framework. You dont control facebook advertising costs, shipments, inventory, quality and dont have a customer list in fact your supplier has it. Basically you arent building a business you are an agent. Now hyou might well be able to make money at it if you know what you are doing but its a job more than a business. Truth be told alot of businesess out there are jobs probably 99%. That kind of sounds familiar doesnt it when you look at income statistics too. Millionaire fast lane is for the 1% who want to create something valuable from nothing.
You will likely need a job or business job to build up capital and experiance so dont turn your nose up at small oportunities initially.

My advice to you is keep reading for another year before taking action, theres plenty of time. Just smile at your parents, dont tell them what your reading or doing. Read E-books or audiobooks with earphones and get rid of the paperback (sorry MJ) Thats probably the biggest part of being a good businessman. It isnt about reality its about bringing pleasure to people and making them happy. Part of the wealth formula-Family and Fitness and Freedom. It isnt really about money but about the wealth triangle. Once your rich make sure you buy them stuff to sweeten them up otherwise it is going to be like walking through setting concrete.

Dropshipping isn't a scam, but it's not the best business for an inexperienced teen.

Are you computer literate?
Can you build a funnel?
If not, can you afford US$97/month for click funnels?
How will you pay for it if you've no credit card?
How can you open a Shopify store?

Anyway, it's all academic since you're underage & you can't open PayPal etc.

Find a side hustle within your means, something you can do now.

At 16 I saw an advertisement in the newspaper for farm eggs.
I bought a box & sold them at work, my neighbours, my grandma's neighbours.
Then I added 25kg bags of potatoes.
Chocolates, greeting cards, anything people wanted.

I built garden fences, kitchen cabinets, delivered weekly newspapers, washed cars, cleared drives, did gardening while still in school.

Then I subcontracted the work to younger cheaper kids while I did the sales & supervised their work.
No internet in 1980.

You have to keep your eyes & ears open for opportunities.

And at least finish high school & get that degree if your parents pay.

Then you have the whole college campus as prospects for your business endeavors.

Good idea, get experience, make a little money, in your spare time study skills that will help you in future & try some small hustle.

Remember to enjoy yourself too, you're still young.
