Hopeful expectations

Honestly the main reason that I ended up in 475 was that I needed an elective that counted towards my degree and this course fit the bill. That doesn’t mean the subject matter wasn’t of any interest to me and I feel like I’m getting more interested every lecture. I still don’t know if being an entrepreneur is in my future but the prospect of making some money and living the fast life is intriguing. Having ideas for apps or businesses involving technology are a common conversation topic amongst my peers and while most of my ideas are too ridiculous I think it will be fun to explore the possibility of making them reality. Which is leads me to what I really want to gain from the course, inspiration. No members of my family or anyone I'm close with has ever owned or started a business, so my skills in the matter are definitely lacking. My hope is that learning the skills necessary to fund, create, and build a business will give me creative ideas. Some of which might actually be viable and worth pursuing. Besides a boost to inspire, I also want to try and improve some of my personal weaknesses. Right off the bat I know the main issue I want to change is my organization and motivation to finish things in a timely manner. As you can see from the timing of this post I am still far from an ideal planner. I've always wanted to be the person who finishes things early then has time for other pursuits but I'm a work in progress.
