You are correct: you do have the potential to own and operate your own business.
It starts with you and the aspiration to be (or do) more. You'll have to make some
sacrifices along the way but from experience, it's worth all efforts and time spent.

Not sure what type of guidance you need but I recommend by starting to read
a couple of magazines (Inc or Fast Company) or watch very basic business
videos (http://www.youtube.com/user/BizKidsTV/videos).

Once you get a general idea of what to expect, you can then begin mapping
out what the business journey looks like and begins with ideation: the
business ideas which are a best fit for you.

Good luck!

Make your Dreams reality!

Every inspiring entrepreneur, like yourself, should start keeping an "Idea" book in their spare time. Becoming your own boss starts with motivation, continued education, social interaction and action, to name a few. Whether it be a new product, an online business (very popular today) or a retail business, you have to start doing your homework and creating networks within your field of interest. Additionally, you must know everything about the business you are trying to create, top to bottom. This is where education comes into play. You must educate yourself by reading books, articles, blogs or magazines and have the willingness to learn, absorb information and realize that business is a 24/7 game.

Most young entrepreneurs these days think its all about the idea, which is somewhat true. However, everyone has ideas...the hard part is doing the homework to know if that idea could work in an industry, then doing the preparation to be able execute that idea.

Words of wisdom:
- inspire others about your ideas
- If you dont like what your doing dont do it. You have to have Passion!
-be the best at everything you do and Own whatever you do!

Hopefully this helps!
