We consider "entrepreneurship" to be by far the best career choice, if for no other reason, financial.

The IRS says 89% of the individuals who make $50,000 per year or more are the owners of small businesses (source: sikirch.com, you didn't think I actually dug this up from the IRS website did you?)

I've no doubt that if the amount were increased to $100,000 per year, or especially $500,000 per year or more, even a higher percentage would be entrepreneurs. (Unfortunately, when you mooch statistics off the Internet, you don't always get exactly what you want!)


You do have other options:
