Something I love to do is fish and if I could earn a living by fishing it would be a real dream come true. I wouldn’t want to fish competitively but rather fish for the fun of it. I would take people out and have them enjoy the relaxation and joy that fishing can offer. The first step I would take, to accomplish this dream is to finish college because the other thing I love to do is to play baseball and I play for my college team. Furthermore, an education in business would help with the financial side of my dream. After graduating, I would buy all the licenses required along with both a freshwater and a saltwater boat. Both of these boats will have enough room for multiple guests to accompany me on trips. Once I have all of these, I would open a business location next to a nice lake. The fishing trips will be open to all but I would personally go after those with stress and depression problems to help them feel a little better. Eventually we will team up with other organizations and spread all over the country and eventually the world, making it a better place one trip at a time.
