Have you always been a person or are you now a young person who thinks it is a nice idea to be your own boss? I am in my late fifties and I am thinking about retirement nowadays, and looking back on my life I do realize that I would have been better off studying a trade.
- That is because I have an entrepreneurial spirit.
I have done a side hustle, freelance writing, for at least twenty years now and that is okay, but it is not the same as being an entrepreneur. So if you have a kid who wants to be his own boss, I highly advise that you teach them to try studying a good trade. For example, if your kid learns how to be a cosmetologist, she can open her own beauty shop. If your kid has learned how to be a heating and A/C pro, one day he can also open his own heating and cooling business. Of course, he would have to go to college after high school, but most heating and A/C programs are less than two years long. In fact, the tech college near me has a heating and A/C program that is only 15 months long. That’s just a year and three months to learn how to be a heating and cooling specialist. There are numerous certifications for certain things in the heating and A/C industry, plus people in the industry can learn more credentials as they go along. Also, heating and cooling companies are always looking for good skilled workers. After working for other people for a decade or so, it is most likely that your kid could decide to open his own heating and cooling business. Then he could be his own boss! The only people that would tell him what to do would be his customers, because he would always want to be serving them the best way he could.
