My professional life plan
I think I've spent many years of my life deciding what I wanted to be for the rest of it, but I think I'll never find the perfect answer.
For this reason, I think I just need to follow my intuition and go on trial and error on things I think have a good potential of making me achieving my goals and making me happy.
As a life plan, I want to live abroad and create my own company, and create products that will change the world. I want to become the next Gates, Zuckerberg, Musk or Bezos.
I want to create successful products that can help humanity create better paths to its development.
When I get older, I want to become a Venture Captalist and invest in new potential startups.
Now, here's my life plan in detail. At the bottom part, there is what I did until this moment, and the upper part, is what I want to do from now on.
Become a UX Designer (complete by: 6 mo)
I want to become a UX Designer as I think this can be a good start for developing my own apps and products, and meanwhile, be hired in a good industry field.
Get a good local job (complete by: 1 year max)
As I want to live abroad, I think I need some local experience first on the UX field, to increase the chances of me getting a job in USA.
For this reason, I need to find a job in my city, in a good company, and try to build my career from the ground up.
Use my experience to build my own apps and products (complete by: 6 mo)
After getting a good job in my city, I want to use the knowledge acquired to start building my own apps, as I have many different ideas so far.
Keep a good job Make one of my ideas successful
As try to keep a good job to finance my life costs and ideas, I want to move abroad by (maybe) getting a remote job first and study the possibilities of moving to another coutry.
Meanwhile, I want to be building my own ideas and trying to make them a success.
Use the money of my successful product to build other great products
After making one of my ideas successful (which can be considerably hard), I want to improve my life and my family's life standard with the money owned, and start developing new ideas.
Keep doing this as much as possible
I want to keep building new ideas and help my family improve their life standards.
When older, become a Venture Capitalist who invests in other companies
At the end of the line, I'd like to be investing in other companies and still be helping other people making their dreams come true, and helping humanity improve their way of living.
1st step - Test your ideas, but keep your job!
As you want to make one your ideas a great success, you can keep things safe by also keeping your job.
In case something go wrong, you'll increase your chances of not suffering financially and keeping your family also safe.
2nd step - Only move if safe
While your trying to make your ideas take off, your job will hold things safe. So don't try quitting your job before a really good step forward (it's gonna be hard).
Also, don't forget to create different revenue streams with your investments and other different ways.
Meanwhile, you can check jobs internationally by applying to them both personally or remotelly.

1st step - Start looking for a job
Now with my portfolio ready, I can start searching for entry level jobs by applying to many opportunities as possible, and building a strong network.

- Watching free content on the internet;
- Making courses online from great education institutions;
- Reading recommended books; And, mainly,
- Practicing. I can start developing my ideas and from others, from this very moment, so I can start "getting my hands dirty".
