"Here is a dilemma for you Eric ... I don't know I think I have entrepreneurial a.d.d. ... I started out a few years ago thinking that I wanted to start shop to work on cars bikes etc... I have been tinkering on cars from the age of 12 on I'm 22 now.. I went out got a job in the industry really enjoyed it ended up starting my own shop about 5 months ago and now I couldn't be more bored of it I still enjoy working on cars and it's always going to be a hobby of mine but everyday it's just becoming tedious and annoying . So I ended up quitting the business and working for a company doing the same exact thing which is actually more fun that way for me because I enjoy being around people. And the shop I had it was literally just me and I had my girlfriend coming after her job and help do silly little things. But even now I'm truly not satisfied. I like the feeling of owning my own business and knowing that it's all under the control of my own hands. I really don't know why I feel that way but its just the way it is. I think I'm going to start heading in the direction of being around people maybe buying and selling items may be some sort of a retail business. I might start buying and selling instruments for I have played music also for my whole life. I guess what I'm wrapping it all up to question you is what do you think I should do. I feel like I'm never going to find the right direction. I'm really hoping that this all pans out and I enjoy the next path I attempted to go down. But everybody is telling me hey stick with something and it's actually starting to make me worry I do have to settle down some point in time I have bills and an apartment. But I really enjoy cars I really enjoy music and I enjoy buying and selling things retail wise I enjoy being around people and I enjoyed festivals and festivities I'm just lost in the sauce on what path to go down any advice?"
