I'm an immigrant from China and now I live in the US. Back in China I had a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering and worked in urban planning and architectural design industry as an electrical engineer for about 5 years before I came to US.
Starting a whole new life in a foreign country, my previous education and experiences are not recognized any more, so I had to find jobs that are not related to my educational background. And starting a family later on further kept me away from going back to school then finding a job in a similar industry. But I do not have any regrets at all. Deep down in my heart I know that I want to go for a different path, in which I will be able to take more control over my own life. So the answer is to start up my own business.
I came across Wealthy Affiliate when I was trying to learn some online marketing techniques. At that time I was looking into online business options such as drop shipping.
Why I want to start my own business? Well there is no simple answer for me. First of all I want to make extra income to support my growing family, and this was the primary reason a few years back. But now I'm looking for more in my business adventure:
- To reach my personal potential
- To find my passion which I cannot find in all jobs I worked or am working on
- To have more control over my own life and destiny
- The possibility of financial freedom
I know this is going to be a long journey, and I have to overcome numerous hurdles before I get there. Glad that I'm with an awesome community in which I find lots of encouragements, inspirations, and much much more.
Thank you for reading this and wish you all the best in your business adventure.
