This young man has a business with his father made up entirely of cool socks! If you could have your own business, what would it consist of and why would you choose that?
I’ll go first:
If I owned my own business, it would definitely be a non-profit sort of place. I would want to have a place where everyone could come in and have place to hang out, shower, have warm food, a place to watch TV, talk, etc. Like a shelter but more home-like and they wouldn’t have to go through the heinous process of getting kicked out in the morning just to have to come back later on that day. I would have a certain amount of people for a certain amount of time, and then once those people are ready to transition new people would come in. I would choose this because I love to give back and I would want to do something that would make a difference in the lives of others. In addition, I know people close to me who have not had food or a place to lay their head a night, and knowing that I would be able to prevent that from happening to someone else means the world to me.
What about you?
