comment How to make people new to programming stop asking me questions and distracting me?
@Marek: Of course. If the OP's time were the only consideration, polite avoidance would be the best way, but I suggested that helping others would solidify his understanding even more under the right circumstances.

comment How does one build skills to be a successful software entrepreneur?
Hmmmm ... I can fully understand that. I'd still try what you can (to what level you're able to ... family comes first) before going out to get a degree. Or read books on running a business, browse OnStartups.SE, etc. This seems like a better use of your time and money than school. (Did I mention that I'm not keen on business school?) :)
