A question I have had to ask myself repeatedly and I know many others have to, is what do I want to be when I grow up. Well being in my mid-twenties, I probably should know that already. However, I like millions of twenty-something adults have too many options. I remember when I was about seven and my father telling that I could be whatever I wanted to be. Boy, was he right. I have now done everything from working in a veterinary clinic to managing a hotel to managing a restaurant to being a wedding planner.
We are given so many options as children and young adults that I think many of us have become complacent to life. There is no one thing to do. Why think up one thing to do when you can always quit, go back to school, and try something else. There is a fear of commitment also related to this topic.
However, in the end we must all learn to decide something to do with our life if we have any hopes of being mildly successful. This is what I recommend. Find something you love to do and then find a way to make money out of it. If you love walking your dog, then go be a dog walker and charge people for it. People are always in need of services and will pay for just about anything (just ask the makers of late night infomercials).
Organizations like the SBA (Small Business Administration) are usually willing to help people start a business. If you still aren’t sure, volunteer. Many companies jump at the opportunity for some free labor and you get the opportunity to see how their business runs. This also gives you the opportunity to find out if the field works for you and if the people in the field are compatible with you. So stop talking and wishing, and just do.
