Both a career as an entrepreneur and a software engineer are not mutually exclusive! In fact, you can develop from a software engineer into an entrepreneur and vice versa.
Being a software engineer is good. No question about it. You can have a very interesting and satisfying feeling of creating code, you can be well paid and support a family in comfort. It’s a great job, with a huge career possibility, probably a great pension too.
Ask yourself.. What you want to do actually?? Entrepreneurship or software world?? Can you survive?? Well both are equally good if u love what you do. You can mint large amount of money in both fields. Both will need hard work. N get a deep knowledge of both the worlds. Getting help from experienced people is never bad.
So buddy, think, decide and JUST DO IT!!!
All the best..!
