Well, here is my future in a nutshell. I have two scenarios. It would be awesome if someone has gone through a similar situation, but even if you haven't, which would you choose? A) My father has a rather large corporation that my grandpa started decades ago. 100+ Employees, and he does work across the west part of the country, mainly Colorado and California. My father has been running the company for about 30 years now. He won't give anyone else the company except for me, because I'm the only one he trusts since i'm his blood. I've lived in Chicago for the past 15 years and he has lived in Denver so we haven't had the closest relationship. Do i take the business, and run it? Let me tell you one thing, i LOVE entrepreneurship. That, and running my own company is in my blood. I have a passion for doing something like that. If I wasn't doing this scenario, I can probably say I'd start my own business as a side job down the road with something I'm really interested in. Pros: Money Running my own company Cons: Very busy Stressful B) Law Enforcement. I'm a senior in high school. Do i really want to go to college? Yes/No. Yes because it's a great life experience and i can have that 4 year degree added to my name. I have always wanted to work for the government, such as ICE, FBI, DEA, etc. Or even as a local cop. I would love to do something like that, but the pay doesn't even come close to what I would be making with scenario A. But life isn't about money, it's about being happy. Pros: Working with many different types of people Everyday changes Cons: Money College required Risky job I just want opinions. I know this is a decision I can only make, but I'm so torn to what to do..
