I started my first business at age 11. My business is called Solife Portraits because it sounded like my mom’s business Soco. I started my business because I wanted to make people happy and share my abilities with the world. I have not had an art class before. I make people happy by giving them a fun picture of themselves. I take pictures that people send me, and hand draw them in a "cartoonish" way. I then scan them and put them on my website. They can download it and pay for it if they like it.
I learned a lot about how to live life by attending a mastermind group on the principles of Think & Grow Rich, and by reading "The Young Traveler's Gift" by Andy Andrews.
The main thing I learned from the class is that when you have an idea you don’t have to know how you’re going to do it. You just do something.
From “The Young Traveler’s Gift’ I learned that everything that happens in your life is because of you. You are responsible for everything in your life because of your actions.
When I started SoLife Portraits, I didn't know how I would do it. I just wanted to be more than what people think is "normal"
I believe that it's true that your responsible for your life because if you want to pass your grade or EOG's you have to be the one to study! I decided I was going to do both, AND do great at both and I studied and worked really hard, and I did!
You just have to believe that you can. I like to share what I learned to help people live their full potential. I believe that people can do much more than they think that they can. It's all in how they think! Lots of kids think that they can't do things (lots of grown ups do to!). I believe that people can do much more than they think that they can. Lots of kids think that they can't do things (lots of grown ups do to!). I want to help people to learn that they have the power to choose, to believe and to take action!
I am also helping to teach other kids how to have businesses! My mom and I are organizing a young entrepreneur’s seminar in September. I will be one of the speakers!
I'll be explaining how the subconscious mind affects us and how we feel and what we do. How your thoughts determine your beliefs and actions, and how important it is to have positive thoughts and believe in what you want to do.
