This quote has little to do with this thread. But I recalled seeing ALarsh's avatar recently, and his post about school and business. Anybody chime in, but I was hoping ALarsh would write something here - I'll PM him too. There are not very many people who have a thriving business going while still in school, or even just afterwards by a few years. ALarsh - or others who started so early - who, or what inspired you to get such an early start? Also, there is a common fear spread around certain circles of our culture, that business has a bunch of entanglements. Did you run into people promoting those fears and worries? Did it affect you, or was it irrelevant. In a nutshell, could you share how you started out, why, and who may have been involved that helped you along?
