So it comes down to this. I'm not suited to work for someone. I have had an extreme entrepreneurial spirit for as far as I can remember. I need to be doing my own thing, calling my own shots, and making things work for myself.
I have a full time job at the moment as a software developer. I love software development, but I hate doing it for a "boss", or a company that I "work" for. I just always day dream throughout my work day about making the next best thing that sells for millions of dollars, or inventing something, patenting it, and selling the patent, or just becoming big somehow, somewhere, and hopefully sometime soon. Is this unhealthy? Should I just be shutting up and focusing on work? I've heard from many people that I should just shut up and do what I need to do to support myself, and not keep counting on things such as this, but I just can't bring myself to do it. I really can't. I've tried, but that spirit just won't leave me.
I have so many ideas for things like Android/Iphone apps, however, there has only been a handful of those that have gotten single developers rich. I keep thinking of the ideal situation, for example, I create an app and then it gets so big, with millions of users, and then I get an offer for Google to buy the name and the code for millions of dollars. Like, how often does that even happen? Does it go unnoticed most of the time?
There's either that or a year long side development project that will hopefully turn some peoples heads and make a splash as well. I would love to be my own boss and start my own business, but I would love even more to create something and then just get bought out and use that money as startup money instead. I think in the world of software this is less impossible than other industries. Am I wrong?
