Ultimately I want to be an entrepreneur, because I love the constant grind, being a leader, and making decisions that result in financial gain. I do not love money itself, but I do value what money represents; it is a means of living and a resource proven to help people. I also love being able to help make a positive impact on people’s lives. Money does not bring happiness, but it brings a sense of accomplishment and could make everyone’s life easier. The reason why we experience poverty and crime is because there is lack of jobs. Imagine a world where everyone has an opportunity to do what he or she was gifted at no matter their ethnicity, gender, or social class. My goal is to implement a program where people who aren’t doing well financially would be given a home, food, and stipend in exchange for being provided a job at my company. My program would deploy individuals to work where their gifts or talents were most fit. They would also be educated up to a twelfth grade level of reading, writing, and mathematics. In addition, they would be given counseling for any substance abuse or post-traumatic problems they may have endured. Imagine a world where everyone was educated and realized there potential.
