Great description of the socialization issue. That's always the first question those who are anti-homeschooling bring up. It's really a non-issue in the big scheme of things. So what if my son or daughter isn't aware of the latest pop cultural trends. I don't think this is a bad thing. Especially since the majority of pop cultural news is negative, and something I want to keep my children away from.
Something else to consider is duel enrollment courses from a local college. These can be taken while still in high school and should count for both high school and college credits. Some top tier universities may not allow them to transfer in as college credit, but they do look impressive and give an extra amount of credibility to the homeschooled student's transcript.
Teaching your children the merits of hard work and entrepreneurship is so important. It really is one of the most important lessons that home schooling parents can teach their children. Two books that I'd recommend for economics and business are "Economics in One Lesson: The Shortest and Surest Way to Understand Basic Economics" by Henry Hazlitt and "Rich Kid, Smart Kid: Giving Your Children a Financial Headstart" by Robert Kiyosaki. Both can be found on Amazon.
