    • Wow at 16 and wanting to start you own business, that’s very admirable for someone your age, well done. We can only give you ideas and suggestions the decision is entirely yours as it is your life and future. What we suggest is you continue with your schooling, and maybe start you business part time. Starting slow will give you the time and flexibility to plan and get your business a solid footing. Once your business is proven and established then is a good time to review your options for your education and future.
