How To Start A Business For Kids -

JAMES A. OWEN’S TIP

I read the book called ”Drawing Out the Dragon” written by James A. Owen. It’s about how we choose the story of our life and what we want to do for a living. He talked about how he loved to draw and be an artist. When he was a little kid he had something wrong with his body, and he became allergic to about everything. So he was stuck in the hospital with six others who eventually started dying in order. The doctors couldn’t find out what was wrong with him, so they started taking him to the gift shop to get comic books. He loved comic books. Eventually, he found his favorite comic about Superman. In the end Superman was dying and his father was saying to him that he had to choose if he wanted to end this suffering and die, or he could go through the pain, and get to be Superman. It’s like we may not always be successful in business or in the things we want in life, but we choose if we want to keep going and try harder. After that, he got better and his grandfather gave him a blessing, and told him that he believed in him. His grand father died not long after, but he still remembers that he is believed in.          ” We remember our dead. When they were born, when they passed away-either as men of promise, or as men of achievement”

Next, he talked about Quality work. It is the good work that you need to have a good life. James really liked writing and drawing comics, so he wanted to create some and sell them. He tried to make his own booth at the back of his house, but that didn’t do so good, so they decided to get a bank loan. He went to every close bank there was, but they all replied with the same answer: Maybe when you’re older, but not now, you’re just too young. James even tried other states banks, but still, the same answer. Finally, he went to his home town bank were they just got a new CEO. He agreed to give him a loan for a booth. Then they decided to go to the San Diego comic con. They sold their comics because of their quality work just like the marvel booth and DC’s booth.      “Be so good they can’t ignore you. I just found a great list of mortgages calculators here

He talks about how you will have to choose if make things happen, or let things happen to you. If you want to make lots of money, people usually do tons of different things. But that is not what he recommended. You want to stick to what you want to do and put your’e time into that. You could get caught up in something other then your main priority, but that could crash and fall real easy if you’re also doing your dream job. However, he says that “catastrophe can just be a course of correction.”  Even when you feel this is what I want, things may fall apart, you just start again until you start doing what you should have been doing all along.             ” Dare he, for whom circumstances make it possible to realize his true destiny, refuse it simply because he is not prepared to give up everything else.”

“If you really want it, no reason is big enough to stop you”. After james went back to writing comic books, he got in a car crash and broke his hand. But even after that, he said he wont stop doing what he wants to do, but everyone else said he couldn’t. However, James screwed a bunch of screws with his hand over and over and over again. Meanwhile he improvised and starting drawing with his left hand while other people started to write ” Star Child ” . Eventually ha was able to write his books and he made lots of money.        ” He who accomplish little must sacrifice little; he who would achieve much must sacrifice much; he who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.”

Now, we all will always have obstacles to face, but James said ” We haven’t lost until we choose to stop “. Even when we feel like were done and about to drop, you Have NOT lost until you decide to quit. James wasn’t going to fall for that again, and you shouldn’t either. James got lots of employees and they worked on lots of books, and became successful. Even without employees, the same thing goes for single business men.       ” There is a point at which everything becomes simple and there is no longer any questions of choice, because all you have staked will be lost if you look back. Life’s point of no return. ”

Next, we will always have problems to take care of. James said,” Motion does not always equal progress. ” It means that even when we act fast to something because of a problem, doesn’t mean we will always fix it. We have to stop and think when problems are turning into disasters. James was in huge debt to the Print, he hadn’t paid his employees, and his business was crumbling before him, so he had to sell his books by meetings in vegas as soon as possible. But that was his mistake.           ” The man who has no more problems to solve, is out of the game. ”

” If you really want to do something, no one can stop you. But if you really don’t want to do something, no one can help you. ”
