MissTortoise, I started to DREAM when I was 8 years old and have never stopped. At age 42 I retired and now live well. I only went to high school but I did many different jobs. To DREAM is to start and from there the only way to go is forward....... If you try and do not succeed you did NOT FAIL , you gained experience in what does not work and you can move forward.... My original goal was to retire at age 45. I never stopped thinking, planning, doing and little by little it all paid off in the end...... I am not rich but I am happy and my TIME is mine now. I do help individuals that are seeking a risidual income as I earn but it is in the health and wellness industry...... I will be working with NUS students soon and hope to be in Singapore by June of 2005........ DREAM MissTortoise and DREAM BIG and never stop.......... Vincent

When you want to do a biz, be clear that you should get the knowledge and know-how...not the prestige of getting the paper qualification cos at the end of the day, biz is not about paper talk.

Tortoise, the advantage of youth is low opportunity cost. You have nothing to lose and all experiences to gain even if your venture fail.
When you fail all, there will still be companies who wants to hire you for your experience. I must correct this thought...if you want to work for others...initial paper qualification is extremely important if you have no experience but if you plan to work for yourself, are you not even convinced about your own capabilities and need a paper to back you up?

Hi there,

I agree with the rest that for a school girl, to jump into a high capital business, it is a big step....

Not sure if you study other business models...

THere is another type where you do not need to jump in with nuge capital, hence risk is much lower...

Can share with you over coffee if you keen to learn more...
feel free to call me 9069 9026
