“In the past couple of years, I’ve been through a number of interesting experiences through building Buffer. One of the things I’ve ended up thinking about a lot is the subject of whether you should drop out of college to work on your startup…”

Hemis Lacala‘s insight:

Everyone has this or once had this, I don’t really have too much emotions about this because of past experiences. Dropping out of school to startup seems like a great idea only when you think you have it all figured out and that once you leave the comfort and privileges of being a student, you have no choice of going back and you simply can’t put off that foot on the accelerator. There are a lot of things you don’t know that you don’t know about starting out, once your decision is made you can’t go back. What if the degree you opting in for is the only solution in your community(you getting a nice paying job and inspiring the kid next door to do the same) but the answer to that question is what separates an entrepreneur from the rest of the world, the ability to take risks and do things differently. You don’t need to be a rebel to realize new ways of doing things.
