Welcome to the Be Your Own Boss Challenge. I don't expect many to participate nor complete it. However this is a real world challenge. Unless it is not realistic for you or not even desired due to already having a career or career path in mind that just doesn't allow this to be a reality whatsoever in the forseeable future, by all means give it a shot. Failure is expected. Don't think of it as competing with others. Think of it as breaking the mold and taking responsibility for your entire life.
