My Fantasy and Reality of Space Exploration

I have always had an interest close to my heart for astronomy and space exploration.

As long as I can remember, I would imagine exploring the vast universe.

As a kid, my milk and cookies was star gazing. In my early teens, I made my own star charts. Boy, do I miss that notebook.

In first grade, our class had to write a short story. Most little girls write about princesses, mermaids and whatnot. I wrote about an alien abduction and zipping through space. I had detailed illustrations of the aliens, spacecrafts, and objects in space. I wish I still had this little booklet to share with you all, but unfortunately I do not.

The experiences I had, and the ventures themselves, taught me a lot about how to be a successful entrepreneur and provided me with a solid foundation going forward.

This post is a recap of some of the businesses I did. Get with your kid and try one!

Age 7: Sodas at City League Baseball/Softball Games

My hometown of Rocklin, CA has a great baseball and softball city league scene. My dad at the time played on one of the teams. So every Friday night I went to his games. But I was always thirsty. And their drink selection was horrible. I had found an opportunity.

With the help of my mother I went to Costco every Friday before the games and purchased sodas and bottled water in bulk. We also got some ice. I filled two coolers full of drinks, grabbed my big cardboard sign I made, and we headed to the park.
