Starting my own business?
Ok I want be straight forward with you guys and girls, I left high school at sec 5 (Grade 11) because I was flunking 2 main courses which I needed to get my diploma, so I had decided to stop trying to fix something that was already broken. So I had left and joined adult education home schooling, which is working very well for me. I do not regret leaving high school, because I am now getting better marks. However long story short, ever since I was in sec 3 (Grade 9) I always wanted to start my own business, it has been my dream thing to do... And to this day I want it to happen, I believe that even if I still don't have a high school degree I can still pull amazing things in life. I still plan to get my Diploma which will be a GED , as I am already working for it. But to make this dream work, I always asked my self the same question where do I start? What do I do? Will people take me as a joke, including my parents because I am 17 years old. I know that a lot of people have told me that I am just wasting my time, but I believe I am not! I believe most things are possible if you give enough effort to it. So please help me with this adventure so that I may fulfil my dream. And even if it fails, I can still say I tried! Please help me with this and please give me feedback if you think I have the personality to accomplish this. Thank you!
Life is just what you believe. You believe you can start a business, then you will definitely. Taking actions.
What I can see is that you felt high school education is not good for you. Maybe other students also have the same feeling. Can you start with solving this problem for other students as your business? Tutoring or consulting can be your start point. Good luck with your actions!
