I'm a freshman finance major at a private university. I thought finance would be a good choice however I absolutely hate it. It seems like most of my time is filled with classes about calculus, "network building", and "taking on leadership roles". My plan initially was to get my degree and start trading after college. But now I'm thinking about just quitting college and trading. If I'm going to try trading it seems to make more sense to do it when I have some money and not 4 years of student loans to pay off. And if I fail at trading that would be great motivation for my studies and I would finish my degree. A little background. I'm entrepreneurial and motivated. I have been working as a freelance photographer and part-time studio photographer since mid-'05 so I have something to fall back on. I started following the market around that time as well. Last spring I really became interested in the market and have been practice trading and spend hours each day reading about trading and going over charts. I've risked (and lost) real money and am now making some profits. My plan is to finish out this semester while doing photography work to save money and then over the summer get a full-time job and then start trading remote prop in the fall. I have very little in terms of expenses. Although it's not the most desirable, I could live with my parents when I start out (free rent, free food, etc...) Anyone have thoughts or advice?
