How I started to work on my future.

Hello, my name is Anthony and I am a senior at Green Canyon High School. I was born in Logan, Utah, but was raised in Mexico with my family. I came back to the United States to study high school this year and I had the challenge of learning English. However, I overcame it because I passed my wide test last year and now I can speak English perfectly. I am really good at learning new things, which is why I learned English pretty fast and I’m proud of myself for that.

Apart from school, I love going to the gym and working out. I started going to the gym when I was 15 years old during my sophomore year. I was tired of just sitting around the house and felt like I was wasting my time and my life. So, I decided to join the closest gym and start my lifting journey. I was pretty skinny, but I got super big and broke records that I never thought I would break. For instance, I bench 275lbs and squat 405lbs. This is not the end, as I will keep working out and improving the rest of my life.

Additionally, I enjoy reading and love reading books. When I was 15, I felt like I was wasting my life away doing nothing, so I started working out. However, I also started getting a passion for reading. I’ve read 48 Laws of Power, Atomic Habits, Rich Dad Poor Dad, How to Influence People and Win Friends, The Way of the Superior Man, and other self-improvement books. I love getting better every day and building my future. After reading all these books, I got inspired to start my own business.

I have started three businesses in total. The first one was selling items on Amazon. I bought earpods from Alibaba and listed them on Amazon for a profit. I made some money, but the sales were not really consistent, so I decided to give it a break. Then, a couple of months later, I started a power washing company and it was great. I made money riding around with a trailer with my pressure washer hooked onto my bike. However, the winter came, and I couldn’t keep going. That’s when I got a job at The Habit Burger Grill. But I never give up, so I started a marketing agency and started doing some publicity and trying to get clients. However, that didn’t work either because people thought I was too young.

But that’s not going to stop me. I know for a fact that I will be successful in life and have a business that provides value to society. That’s why I’m interested in the business program at Utah State University. I’m a hard-working guy who doesn’t know how to give up and will do anything to accomplish my goals.
