1 Year Out I plan to go to a college with an undergraduate business program, where I can take classes such as economics, finance, accounting, management and communications.

Hopefully I will have a job within the first year of graduation. In this time I would hope to start building a professional network while still enjoying my free time and helping out my community.5 Years Out Within my first five years I hope to be working with a steady job, possibly in accounting. I would hope to enjoy free time and possibly start a family. I would try to get a house relatively close to my job.10 Years Out By this time in my career, if I hadn’t already, I would possibly go back to college to obtain a master degree or a J.D.
