I think maybe you should rethink opening a business in a place where people have no jobs and no money (by what you say) in order to give the people jobs and money.Hi my name is Rosa and I just need some advice. I'm not the type to talk much about my plans or feeling but I think you guys are smart people and I just want to hear what you guys have to say. I am 16 going to turn 17 in March. Well yes i am really young but im faced with a big decision well at least I think its a big decision. okay, so I am Mexican and I want to move to Mexico. My dad and brother are planning to move there already to open a car repair shop. The town i am planning to move to is a developing town. What I mean by that is that its developing businesses and houses are being build. I personally think that the car repair shop is going to work because there isn't much competition. They don't know as much about cars like my dad and brother do. But my point is this I don't know if I should go with them or not. I am a very smart girl I have straight A's and there is no doubt in my mind I can do anything I set my mind to. When I tell people that im moving to Mexico and not going to college they look at me like if im so idiot, they always say that im very smart and that im making a foolish mistake because its very important to go to college. I agree with them im not saying college is bad but I don't know if its the right decision for me. I REALLY don't want to go to college for 4+ years, just to be stuck in some office waking up early just to working for somebody else. I swear I really cant do that!!!! So because im smart I want to be different I want to go to Mexico and open up my own businesses. Personally I think it would be easier because there isn't much competition. I don't care if I have to work really long hours because its my business and im doing it for myself. I'm fighting for my dream!! My dream is to have multiple businesses. of course like every business I am going to start off small but one day I want to open up a super store like Walmart. I want to hire a lot of poor people In Mexico I want to help them feed there families. I want to help them not have to come to America for a better life. I want to just help my country, but at the same time put money in my pocket . My plan is to open up that super store and many other small businesses and then hire people from those really poor places in Mexico and bring them to my town and of course they are going to need a place to sleep therefore I am also going to make small apartments for them to rent. I also want to open up gas stations, and my ultimate goal is to open up a hotel in a tourist area. It might sound stupid but I picture myself walking through my hotel just saying good morning to all my guest :joyful:. I want to be a billionaire but at the same time help my country. I want to help out a really poor town and give them jobs. My ultimate but sort of unrealistic goal is to be the first women president to help out my whole country not just pieces of it. But I guess the problem with me is that I am unrealistic as you can see I dream big. But im not saying this is all impossible because I know myself and when I really want something badly I get it. In conclusion my question is this am I being unrealistic should I stay here in the USA go to college and then take my life from there or should I just get started on my dream. Should I move to Mexico and start a small business and then make it grow and see how it goes. I know that both decisions are going to require hard work and im ready for any obstacle but I have two different paths that I can take. So what do you guys think I should do?
