I am in my final semester in college taking a class about finding work. As I have learned more about the world of work, I have wanted less to do with it. From what I've been taught, work is always a brutal, merciless environment where everyone is constantly trying to manipulate others. Even my own professor isn't that kind, or understanding. I informed her of a glitch I found on our class website. She interpreted that as me trying to get out of doing my assignments (which had NOTHING to do with that, I was telling her that the page wasn't keeping track of which assignments I had done right, even though I had done all of them and she had even given grades for them). She even threatened me because of what I said! I'm afraid I'll just make her even madder if I try to explain to her that she completely misinterpreted what I was saying.
Beyond that, the local businesses are infamous for mistreating their own employees. Obviously, I need to work, but I don't see anyway I could stand working for anyone for any length of time (even my own relatives are constantly switching occupations due to abuse from their superiors). Funny enough, half the business around here have had 'looking for work' signs up for months, and that's because nobody in town wants to work for any of them! Most businesses around here don't even obey laws regarding working rights!
A plan I came up with to fix my dilemma was to just make money on my own somehow. I don't know anything about actually doing that (I'm an IT major), but given the local work climate I really can't see myself doing anything else. As for what I was thinking, there's quite a few farms around here (including one of my neighbors), so I figured I could make money growing crops on my property. I don't know how much money that would make me though, or how I could sell them. I do know the local grocery stores get their food from the local farmers, but I have no idea how that actually works or what they require of their farmers (I think my neighbor grows food for himself).
What would I have to do to seriously create my own self-owned business, and I would prefer a business where I didn't have to hire any employees. I want a source of income that is just me and me alone. I don't have a degree that teaches me how to actually create a business though, so I don't know how I could accomplish this goal.
