Either a little for a long time, and then maybe a lot more years down the line, or you could dwell in mediocrity forever, or maybe you could go bankrupt.

Get your radiology degree, use the job to get yourself settled financially, and then start your own business when you are a bit more secure and have something to fall back on.

Trust the word of someone who has tried to start his own thing too early several times.

^^^^ Agreed. I know a few ppl that have jumped out and did things without thinking, or they thought and had a greatplan, but no backup if somethin hard hit. My friend started his own painted bus and it worked out great until he got kicked out of his space cause the rent got too high and he had nowhere else to go and nothing to fall back on...that hurt him. Get the degree first then open the bus

If you got the smarts I would go with radiology. Theres more stability in the medical field.

make a good bit of money from radiology first. That way, you'll have the capital to start a business, and if it fails, you have some cash to fall back on.

there a lot of things to consider if your going to start your own business. is there going to be a demand for what your doing, whats the competition (in part sales think globally), what can you offer thats different from the guy down the street.

if you have your own business, your not going to be working regular hours but more like 80hrs+ a week. and you don't really need a business degree if you want to start one up. just need good sense in what your doing.

i'm not going to tell you what you should do, do what you want to do.
