Please, read my writing and give me your insight. I am confused. I'm going into my 4th year of school for a degree in Industrial Engineering. I go to a great school, and while I like Industrial Engineering, I am more interested in making money, being passionate about work, and loving what I do. I've had internships with 3 solid companies (Boeing most recently). I feel like it's so easy to get lost in the mix with these large companies, it's not cut out for me. I grew up in a farming family, my Dad instilled entrepreneurship into my veins. I've started a few solo businesses, with no employees, and paid my way through school by doing this. It's exciting. Sure, there's a solid, stable job market for an Engineer, but is it what I want to do? Do I want to put a price on 8 hours of my life, every day, for the next 30 years? Do I get my degree, pursue an MBA, and get an upper management job with a good company? Or, do I go for my own business, try a few start ups, and if I fail, go get a job? I just got out of a meeting with my boss, and he extended me an offer to work for Boeing once I graduate. I told him exactly how I felt, (which is that I believe I am socially skilled, smart, motivated, and can make more money on my own), and he said "I wish I had big enough balls to do that when I was young". There are so many things to go for in life, and so little time. Anyone been in this predicament before?
