I don't want to fill my response with quotes for 5 different people so i'm just going to do my best to respond to each without the quotes.
daynight - Your response was much needed and actually takes a lot of weight off my shoulders. As i stated earlier i have been an entrepreneur me
entire life, for as far back as i can remember (which isn't very long as i am only 20) but i have had an eBay account for 11 years and i guess since
i was 9, have been buying stuff off local kids and at school and then reselling on eBay and other various sites for a considerable profit. For the
past three years i have adapted to the market, and now sell high end consumer electronics because i KNOW that stuff will sell. I have obtained skills
along the way that you can't be taught by someone, but can only gain through experience. I have also worked for a number of small businesses to try
and learn as much as possible about them, but i rarely stay somewhere for more than a year because i am under-payed for the work i do and eventually
get sick of it. I put up with dumb drama that was all around my in high-school, i generally played a role in that business that was very crucial and
did my work better than most of the people that worked there. But because i came into work, did what i was told without talking much to those around
me, i was treated differently. I didn't receive the proper raises and benefits that i was promised, and was drug into the drama that i tried so hard
to stay out of it. This is the situation literally everywhere i work, and i am no longer going to put myself in that situation. Hopefully within the
next year or so i can come up with a good business plan and present it to the correct people that will back me in my ventures.
ottobot - I really like that idea, and i think i will start doing so. I am going to try and get back on a normal sleep schedule in order to have more
time for myself to do these sorts of things. I recently began working out again because that is one thing that takes my mind off of everything, and i
feel good after doing it. I think keeping a journal of my thoughts would be great.
Fortunately my partner does know a good amount about me, she knows that i am not like most people and i think that is one thing that has made our love
so strong. From the beginning she knew that i was realist, and that with every good idea that comes about i will show her the negatives as well as the
positives so she knows what to expect. She was not like this at all before and never took into account this aspect of the situation, and as i whole i
think it has made her more aware. We think alike, but act differently and because we are so different in how we act it attracts us that much more.
For example, she doesn't do well when under pressure by other people when it comes to work and her family mainly. If something happens at work, she
will call me and ask what she should do. 95% of the time i can tell her what to do, and what responses she can expect in return from whomever the
conflict is with, and it goes exactly as i say it will. In the beginning she seriously thought i was some sort of physic predicting what is going to
happen, but has began to realize that it's just general knowledge. I understand the people in the industry that she works in, and i can figure a
general sense of how they will react just judging by their character. I'm not claiming in any way to be better than these people, but i tend to be
good at figuring people out ( i just wish i could figure myself out).
Through these experiences i think i have opened her eyes to a lot more, and she better understands who i am as a person. She knows my ambitions in
life, and that i have a great will to be the best at whatever i do. So she knows who i am, and what i see, but i don't think she could comprehend the
incredibly in depth stuff that i am explaining on here, if that makes sense. Nor would it be the correct time in her life for me to dump my thoughts
