Are you trying to acquire wisdom?
If so, then quit your job and go work for an early staged startup. Put your all into it and try your hardest to make it succeed. Use the $10,000 to live off of. Minimize all your expenses and learn how the business world works. In most cases, the business will fail, so do not expect to get rich from the venture. The probability of your first venture succeeding are extremely slim. It is more of a learning experience as opposed to a method to attain wealth.
You’ll leave the business with a lot more skills than you had when you started, ranging from figuring out how to cultivate something from nothing to understanding people. You’ll also learn how to live on a tight budget, which will be extremely useful for the future.
Or at least that is what I learned.
