Ahh...sweet success, now bring on the Ed-ju-ma-cation!

Right now I am really exciting, about my current business endeavours. Business wise I can really see the horizon of minor success. To be honest, I really didn't think I would see any results; at least not by myself. I really thought I needed someones help, like my mom's financial resources. This just shows you, what good credit can do for you. I think that's what also makes this so sweet, I'm doing this on my own.

I am working on two deal, that could potentially be the start of a very profitable future. One is a minor deal, nice little check, for not doing much, but it really is setting me up for great connections. The other deal, if I play it right could be the start of my financial security. That is without a doubt my most important goal. I plan on turning this chunk of change, and continue to keep flipping that money, until I hit secure territory.

The strange part is, the closer I get to actual profits. The more I get school on my mind. Since I left high school, my family has been wanting me to get serious about school. I have changed majors, multiple times. Never really taking anything, that interest me, or really just not wanting to be there. I have taken a semester off here, and a semester off there. I can't explain it, but it just wasn't in my heart. Deep down I always knew I would eventually get it. It's really what I have wanted since the 6th grade. I want to be considered, an educated black man. My goal was to get a Bachelors and a Masters, meanwhile four years later after high school, and I still haven't finished getting my bachelors.

Here I am getting closer to some sort of success, business wise, that could turn into something major, and now I want to get all serious about finishing school. Deep down I think I know where this is coming from.

Sometimes I do, have this I will show you attitude, my forever way of, trying to prove somebody wrong. I can't help it. For sometime now, not just from my family, but from outside sources, I've heard this, if you want a decent future then college is the way to go. I however, just don't believe that. Don't get me wrong, I think college is very important, but I don think it is the begin all, be all of success. One of my favorite aunts, who I love dearly; actually told me, after hearing about my recent semester off, "...And I thought you were going to be something, you had such potential." As if my life is over, or I'm in my fifties on the fry station at McDonald's.

It's not just from family either, it's so many people. I mean I'm feel good, that many people are concerned about my welfare, but really sometimes their so called helpful comments, is just...stupid! I remember back, when I was in my senior year in high school, and I told a friend, Katrina about my thoughts, about not going to school right away. Her response was, "If you don't go to college, what will happen to you? I mean what kind of future are you going to have?" I mean she acting as if I was going to be poor and living in the projects. That was the beginning of four years of comments like that.

This country is full of, people who didn't finish college or didn't even go, and are very successful, and yes, they never rapped or played professional sports. This country is full of successful entrepreneurs, who didn't say... finish school. I'm not saying it was easy, but they did make it happen.

I think that's what I set out to do. To legally be successful...well maybe not successful, and more as financially secure, before finishing college. Now I'm ready to getting cracking seriously on books. However I'm going to keep that on the low. No need to let people think they are the reason, for me to let people think they were the reason for my change in behavior. I'm going to wait until, all checks are cleared and profits are in, and more deals are made, before I let people in, on my plans.

I think the attitude youhave is great. I feel like kids being forced into college straight out of high school doesnt give them the opportunity to appreciate college. Its like they are doing it because thats what their parents want them to do
