Entrepreneurship to me, is the ability to be your own boss and also have the opportunity to do something you love for a living.

This week I heard of a “rage room” which is a pretty interesting concept. Essentially people pay to enter a room with various tools such as a sledgehammer or baseball bat, and pay to destroy different objects to de-stress!

Working with Youth Ventures of course! Enjoying the sun will be nice as well.
