In this essay, for Business 1, I will be explaining why, I will have lost money at age 70 because of television. Now, I don’t usually watch excessive amounts of television, however I do watch some. The typical amount of TV, that I watch, is about an hour and a half a day. I do have a few exceptions such as when I am sick, or on the weekends. Let’s get into this essay, before I forget and go watch some TV.

Earlier this week, I was given the assignment to find out how much TV I watch in a week. Well, I discovered how much I watched this week, but I was sick and could barely do anything on Monday, and so that kind of threw off my calculations. However, it was still this week and so I must put it into my calculations. Plus, people will have those kinds of days in their lives, so that is why I am fine with putting this into my essay. The only draw-back is on the weekend, seeing as though that hasn’t happened yet, I will only get a calculation for the work week. Maybe, over the weekend, I will do this again just to see how much money I lose over the typical weekend…
Here is the amount of TV over a week: 10.5 hours a week.
Here is the amount of TV per month: 42 hours.
Here is the amount of money per month: $840.
So, over a period of about 56 years. (I choose 56 years, because in 56 years I will be 70.) I will earn about 26,572,566.47 if I reinvest 100% of what I earn. This is awesome! I never thought that having a business, and investing the time that I spend in front of a television into my business, I would become super rich. It seems to me that if I had thought of this earlier, I would have started a business and I would have been earning a whole lot more money than I am now.
[Even though I just got my first “job.” I put that in quotes, because it is an acting job… for a couple of days of work.]
If I think about this really hard, I start to think about how I would have to do this. First, I would have to start a business by 15, and then start earning $20 an hour by the age of 20. Then, I must have an interest rate of 10% to get this much money in 56 years. Well, unless I start that business now, it will really be 55 years. Basically, I have less time to earn this much money. However, a year wouldn’t be too detrimental to the plan, because I will still be earning a lot of money each year.
In conclusion, I think that starting a business at 15 is a great idea. I think that if you can do it, do it. Also, if you can’t do it, figure out why and then change that so that you can do it. This assignment has shown me that a business is very important for people who want to earn a lot of money, and don’t have a skill that pays a lot of money. Or it is important for people who DO have those skills, but can’t get a job. This shows that you can skip the burger joint, and go straight to Silicon Valley.
