Dreams Of A Business Essay

941 words - 4 pages

To own a business was and still is a childhood dream that I wanted to pursue. I always wanted to be a CEO of a huge corporation. I figured that if I were going to work, I would rather make money for myself than to make it for someone else. When you're making money for yourself you tend to love the job more than if you are working for someone else.By having my father as a role model, I was taught that a good man is one who can support his family, not only financially but also mentally. My father sets the perfect example of what being a man is. I learn from him through his actions and his teachings, that in order to be a man, I would have to assume responsibility and be able to support my family some day. Though tired and worn out, my father would work six days a week and 18 hours a day just to keep a roof over our head. Though my fathers choice of work differs from my own, we have the same outlook on what being a man is. The difference between my father and I is that I do not want to work long days and hours, because even though you may be making good money, your family suffers from lack of time spent together and much less time being seen.Owning my own business would allow me to make a substantial amount of money in more than half of the time that my father did.

Without this document I can't be classified as a corporation.Throughout my childhood and early adult life, I always tried to think of businesses that would most interest me. I felt that if I'm going to be working hard at starting this business, then it should be something that I love doing. The occupations that most interested me was: engineering, physical therapy, and accounting. Many people seem to have a career that they despise and are able to work there for 30 years. Then at about half way through the job they become tired of the job and then put little effort into the job. ?Rather than becoming tired of jobs that you don?t really enjoy doing, just do something that you're going to love and become a sole proprietor.? A sole proprietor is one who owns his own business.At times, I thought about working for myself but if I did then it would be difficult to start by myself. I would be personally liable of all business debts, and responsible for all controls of the business. I may make a lot of money but it will take time for me to reach...
