The world you entered into unfortunately isn't remotely the world young high school graduates face today.
You can still be successful as a business owner, of course, but unless you have parental ressources to draw upon, everything is a lot more difficult because low end wages today are a lot lower so it's difficult to get the capital you need to get started.

And let's face it - most people aren't suited very well to run their own business in any case.
