American Dream – James Means

The American Dream that I have is to open up my own business. I would like to open up a restaurant to have people explore and taste different forms of menus that I can create. Some menus that I can create are soul food and seafood creations. My dream is not the same like most American dreamers. Most American dreamers say that their dream is to become a famous basketball player or become a famous actor/singer. To accomplish my dream of opening my own business, there are many accomplishments and achievements that I will take like getting my degrees, obtaining experiences in restaurants, the challenges of getting loans and managing, hiring and firing, take responsibility as the person in charge and making my business a nation business.  IMG_0449

The first accomplishment that I will take is to get my degrees. As of right now I am currently in the 11th grade at Freedom Academy High School. To achieve my education degrees I plan to get my Advance High School Regents Diploma, my Masters in Business Administration and an Associate in Culinary Arts. I also plan to have experiences in restaurants. I will like to have the experience in a restaurant to be shown how it is run cooperated. I would like to be shown the jobs that each person have and how the kitchen is being run, like the duty of the head cook and the duties of the other workers in the kitchen.

The second accomplishment that I will have to achieve is the challenges that I will have to take. The challenges that I will face are the managing of the restaurant, get a place to have my restaurant at, and complete my experiences in at least two restaurants. The reason why these are challenges to me is because they are problems that I will have to handle to make my American Dream come true. I plan to overcome these problems by taking it one day at a time. The biggest challenge that I have is getting a place for my restaurant, and I plan to overcome it by saving money and getting loans and grants, and even also a getting location for it. Another challenge that I really have to face is doing the experience, this is a challenge because I am a person that likes to be in charge. I plan to handle this by just stepping back and letting the manager to charge and watch him/her run the business that they are running.

After my American Dream has come true, I still would have one more accomplishment that I need to achieve. My third and last accomplishment to achieve is to make my restaurant a national restaurant. I plan to make my restaurant a national restaurant by using the money I get from the local restaurants organization to build another restaurant organization in a different state or city. After I build at least three or four organizations I will then have my restaurant known has I national restaurant, like Red Lobster, Applebees, Joe’s Crab Shack and many other well known restaurants.

In conclusion, I can say that I will make my American Dream come true. I also can say that I am not sure I will fellow my accomplishment in this essay to make my American Dream come true, but I will try. My American Dream will come true, through all the challenges, and the accomplishments that I will overcome and achieve. My American Dream will come true because no matter how hard the challenges get I will not quit, because quit never win. Opening my own business is my American Dream.
