I'm currently in high school (17 years old), and I'm pretty much failing due to the lack of effort I put into school. Ever since I was 14, I've made up my mind about being an investor. Right now I'm currency trading and it looks like an ok income. But I also have plans to invest in Real Estate to build up my passive income. Seeing as how these things don't require a High School Diploma, and I've already stayed back twice, I was thinking of just dropping out. With that said, I'd like to hear everyone's input on this situation.
