Just like many young people I have faced the constant un-surety of my adult career path. It seems pretty normal that when choosing a career choice, one can be a little wishy-washy. When I graduated high school I was relatively sure that I wanted to become a photographer and once in Jr. College I had every intention of pursuing this career. As I went through the motions of school I started to lose my momentum in pursuing photography, although I still loved it deeply I was worried that it wasn’t a perfect career choice.
Perfect career choice… is there such a thing? I’m not so sure. It was during my second semester at the local JC that I came across one of Robert Kiyosakis books, Rich Dad Poor Dad. After reading this book and a few similar ones I felt confident that I wanted to become a real estate investor and be in business for myself. This was a new idea and a 360 from my present mindset. I knew this goal would require a lot of internal and external changes. My feelings of excitement and motivation to pursue this new goal was proof to me that I had found something that I really liked.
Since 2008 I have been working towards my goal of becoming a real estate investor. While working to achieve this I had to change many things about myself and my life. It feels good to change, and change for the better. I am so happy with my personal growth so far and I am finally seeing my work pay off. I continue to be excited about real estate investing and entrepreneurship but I am longing for that creative outlet that photography gave me.
So here is my latest challenge: To come up with a way to turn my love for creativity and art into a profitable business. Ideally apply these qualities to real estate investing….
