    lately my dream is to be my own boss.

    i think its from talking with all these young rich entreprenuers(sp?)
    they seem happy.. they give me some tips and tell me what they do..the young guy was all about investing; while buying his own stores, such as "jack in a box" .

    the other guy was all about building schools.preschools is where the bank is at.my aunt does it and its smooth sailing.she has it in some rich area of san diego.

    so now im wanting to do these things.make a foundation that me and my boys can be proud of, while makin money.i am only street smart, so as late as it is, im going back to school to learn some more tips.i suppose this is where most of my time is going to be centered on.a reason to stop partying and start back on focusville.

    -deleted ideas of what i want to do-
    i cant tell you what it is that i want to do, but girls...you will look so damn sexy.guys, you'll feel like a badass.

    around six of my college friends are millionaires. it was so easy for those guys it almost makes me sick.

    I'm working on several different ideas. One of em's gotta hit.

    I'm just taking my time because I know it's coming.
    And I know that if I build too much for myself here
    I wont be able to just leave it for this other business that's coming in about 10 years.

    My roomates father has made and lost millions time after time. Like 6 times now.
    He's currently running a nationwide chain of ambulance chasing lawyers.

    I guess you need to sell a bit of your sould for certain business directions.

    without a doubt. that's why I also will take my time and keep my soul, but you still have to make sacrafices.

    no doubt.

    You can sacrafice your sleep, your social life, relationships, health and even you family,
    but when you cut out the morals and ethics, then you're slimming your chance for success.

    one of the guys that rose to the top first made ALL those sacrafices.
    his demise came when he got greedy and left the morals and ethics at home.
    you can lose it faster than you make it.

    That's why my roommates father has had so many ups and downs.
    well... mostly alcohol and shady business partners. Very shady.

    this guy was shady from the beginning and this was his first real attempt at going legit. it worked and it worked well for him. he amassed a huge fortune...but I guess it all goes back to the leopard not being able to change its spots. almost sad...
