I don’t believe in working for someone for the rest of my life. I don’t work for anyone currently because I have a hard time not being rewarded for my hard work. I prepared myself to work at home because it’s very rewarding as I work more and more. I’m not a person that will see opportunities pass by. I worked for Federated Department Stores for three years till I realized that my potential is greater than serving people in retail stores.
I worked hard to prepare myself to earn the level of my current income. Some of my friends get jealous and say I just sit around, do nothing, and get paid for it. My friends have no clue the amount of reading and researching I did to get my web developing skills to what it is now. Getting a good income is easy for me now, as a student, but I couldn’t do it without working for it. I believed that working at home is better and more rewarding than working at Macy’s. I don’t have to wake up 8 in the morning and dress up to serve rude people, I can wake up whenever I want and work whenever I want because I believed there was something better.
So, don’t think that what you’re doing is the end. There’s more to what you’re doing now. I started to work at home because it was better than working at a department store and now I’m trying to get into medical school because that’s even better than what I’m doing now. So, shoot for something better, remember the sky is the limit.
