An interesting thread. What if I only care about coding? I can code (and develop complex systems, implement concepts), but have zero ideas about anything else in the world.
Then you are a candidate to be a programmer. Team up with one of the big idea people.

I study programming too, IT field is quite profitable today. Also I'm interested in quality assurance and testing services. Building an automated quality assurance and testing process is the cornerstone of a successful, scalable product. It's better to turn to professionals to save both time and money and get a high quality product.

I don't think learning programming is stupid. I'd always advice anyone to go with their guts on this, if you have a project in mind, learn the basics of the programming languages you will need, then get to work, that way you will learn better working on a real project, than working on theories that you might never use, for months or even years.

Learning sales is important no doubt, but it's a choice for anyone to pick a priority first (coding or sales), depending on set goals.

Also before learning any skill, It's also necessary for everyone to have a set limit, not to learn the skill to be good enough in it ( have a specific goal, so you can dedicate your time to other important things)

Hope this helps.
