What are some things you're into? What do you think you'd enjoy doing?

I suggest you contact your local SCORE Chapter for free counseling.
Sitting down with a counselor lets you think through your ideas and screen the methods you are contemplating. The counselor can become a coach as you make this move. I believe you will come out of your first counseling session with new thoughts and ideas that develop as you explain what you plan to do. Putting this into words and expressing your ideas lets you review and revise
area that may lead to greater success as you make this a reality.

As Amir said, find something you're interested in. Once you figure out what that is, study and read everything you can about it. It's best if you can work for a business that does what you're interested in first.... you'll get paid to learn.

Default Youth is a blessing...

Hey man,

I commend your entrepreneurial spirit! I to am a young man, 21. I started my own business because I was tired of working for people. Now I pay for a large portion of my College. Its a great feeling. I got two tips (and they will sound really corny, but its very important).

A) Always stay positive... Dont expect to make much (or anything at all) for the first 12 months (owning a business is a learning process). Usually even if your business is on a positive slope (aka... making money) your making very little.

B) Make sure whatever you do is something unique that you have studied extensively. Read everything you can about it. Become an expert. People dont pay for a crappy product or a crappy service.

What is nice about being young is if you keep at it, you will be very wealthy very very early.

Hope you do well.
