What will donations go towards? Donations will go toward business registration, business licensing, and a number of legal necessities; majority of the start-up process and hopefully a small renovation here and there. My story- With both me and Washington, D.C being in its prime, I feel there is no better time than now for my small business dream to take off. Last year, Forbes declared the Washington Metropolitan Area the coolest city in the entire country. The magazine’s semi-scientific system for measuring “coolness” took into account: entertainment options, trendy food, racial and ethnic diversity, the portion of residents who are between the ages of 20 and 34 (apparently the coolest age to be), and net migration: the number of people moving into the city (to be where the cool people are). D.C beat out second place Seattle (you know, in the other Washington), and other cities like Austin (#3), San Fran (#5) and even New York (#11); cities like these pride themselves on their coolness, whereas I guess you could say D.C is a little modest. Among me being at the “cool” age of 20, there are plenty of advantages. For starters, things like learning, growing, and even failing, are easier. I am contagiously enthusiastic. It is a lot easier for me to stay up-to-date. I have a lot more time to focus on my business and I am insanely creative. I crave a life where I could offer jobs; I want to help the economy and inspire with my small business or businesses, in the interim being a great leader. My disadvantages, such as being considered minority and the lack of finances, bring me to fundraising to reach out for support but do not discourage me. Spread the word and thanks so much in advance! What kind of business? I'm about to put a spin on the entertainment business in D.C.. You have to stay tuned!!!
