Today was the first day of my third year at the FEE seminar in Orange, CA. (It’s also going to be my last year which is sad but it’s time to move on.) I started attending FEE a few years ago because my dad was getting into economics and he heard about the seminars they put on for the youth, so, he told me about it and suggested that I went. It sounded interesting and I thought it would be a good experience so I chose to go. Obviously, I had a great time my first year so I decided to go back. Now it’s my third year, and it’s crazy thinking back to my first time.
I remember being scared about being away from my family for a few days, I was totally nervous to meet new people - it just seemed like a huge step in life. It’s crazy how life moves on, now I don’t even think about the fact that I’m here. It’s exciting, yes, but it’s almost routine.
We only had one session today and it was lead by (the one and only) TK Coleman: “Think Like An Entrepreneur”. Needless to say that it was amazing, inspiring, and I couldn’t have agreed more. One of the biggest issues, I think, with society today is that too many people are scared to take risks. The entrepreneur is someone who sees a problem, and says, “I have the power to solve this issue.”
I hope to someday help others realize this is an issue and hopefully bring them to a point of realizing that they can have the power to solve their own issues as well. There’s a gift that comes with obstacles, it forces you to think creatively. That’s the beauty of difficulty.
