Future Story Blog Post Model

For the past four years I have recorded where I think I will be in five years. It is hard to believe that time has arrived. I will be lifting off soon to take my next steps towards my future story but I am not fully sure where I want to go to college! The pressure of choosing a college is something that I would rather not have, but I recognize that with change comes growth and I'm going to have to make the leap one way or another. Fortunately, I have two college visits planned in January.
In five years I plan on opening my own business. It is my dream to help people with their technology and security needs in their homes and businesses. When I look to my progress towards my future story goals, my first step is becoming college ready. I still need to meet my math benchmark. I am so close to being College Ready YETI! I plan on retaking the KYOTE to get this benchmark in the next two weeks. It is important that I do not have to take any remedial classes my first year in college so I don't delay my graduation. I need to make sure I stay after for Future Story Support Hours on Wednesdays for more help with Math.
When I think about transitioning to college and then to open my own business, I worry about not succeeding. I know it is important not to make decisions out of fear. However, I hear all of the horror stories about owning your own business. I know it will be tons of work, but how do I make sure I am not one of the businesses that don't succeed in their first five years? How can I make sure I stay up to day on the latest technology trends to keep my future business on the cutting edge? I think I need to spend my next Operation Exploration day shadowing a small business owner to ask these very questions. I am sure they will have helpful tips that will help ease my fears.
