Drive or No Drive

First and foremost I have not yet determined what my senior project will be, though I have an idea (become an entrepreneur). The book Drive however made me feel that my idea would be a complete failure. It read plenty of times that when the goal is profit, performance is poor. That discouraged me from becoming an entrepreneur, somewhat. Still after reading it I have an urge to become an entrepreneur and I have been trying to come up with ways to make this idea a success. So, I have decided to break it down a bit. How can me becoming an entrepreneur and acquiring a decent amount of money via entrepreneurship be different, important and make a huge statement? I pondered for days and concluded that pursuing this would be important and make a huge statement. Why you ask? Because most adolescence under the age of 18 are limited in their employment. Essentially, if you are not yet 18 you have to settle for a minimum wage job that, hopefully, most of will dislike. By my doing this project and seeking success, juveniles will hopefully be motivated to do more and not settle for less. Yes, we are under 18 and have no degree, but we have ideas. Why must we be broke?

  1. I see your point and I think it is an admirable one. I know you did have success as an entrepreneur, and that makes me happy for you. However, I also know that very few people in our Chinquapin community know about your success. If inspiring others is your goal, How are you planning on doing that? What method are you going to use to help us accomplish what you accomplished? Are you trying to inspire others to do what you did? Or are you just trying to inspire others by informing them of your success?
