I really think i know what i want to do when i grow up. I was thinking about doing engineering, but honestly, i dont think thats my true passion. I think i would love to start my own business. Doing something i love, make it expand, and maybe even get lucky and have it grow into something huge. But honestly, i barely know the tip of the iceberg. The business i would want to start im not 100% sure on. Something with technology would be the best. But i dont know. I think that whole area is covered pretty well by existing ones.I know that it will be years for me to see any kind of growth or large money gains.
So what do you have to tell me? Would i be better off looking to do something else? Am i simply wasting my time? I'm really just trying to get a grasp on the idea of owning a business.
Thanks for any of your thoughts.
