The United States has an abundance of cheap housing, great public transportation, a thriving tech industry, and, most of all, a population that can be counted on to give you a decent retirement.
If you’re looking to get a little bit more creative, here are 10 things you can do to make your dream come true.
Start a business.
As a millennial, you can get involved in your city’s economy.
In the past year, the number of startups has exploded in many cities and even more people are making a living online.
If your company can use your talents to create a unique experience, your business will surely gain traction and you’ll be able to grow it.
For the past decade, companies like Yelp, Pinterest, Airbnb, and Uber have helped to transform the way people find and book restaurants, hotels, and other places.
The United Kingdom, too, has seen a huge influx of new businesses thanks to the growth of the internet-based Airbnb platform.
In 2018, London recorded the largest number of Airbnb listings of any city in the world.
This was thanks in part to the success of London-based startup Yomkom, which has been expanding rapidly since its inception in 2014.2.
Rent a home.
Renting is a great way to get into the local community.
If it’s your first time living in a big city, it’s possible to find affordable housing.
If, however, you’re willing to invest a little more, there are a number of options available in your area.
Many cities, like San Francisco and Seattle, offer free or low-cost housing.
In fact, in Seattle, a group of landlords are now selling a “Home in the U.S.A.” program to help people find affordable homes.
If that’s not enough, there’s a great variety of rental options available, from small houses to large ones, with prices starting from $1,000 to more than $20,000 per month.3.
Go to college.
You’ll be well-prepared to be an entrepreneur when you attend an accredited college or university.
A few things to consider: You need to be a U.C.L.A. student to qualify for financial aid, so make sure you know the requirements for attending the school.
The school has been in the news recently because it’s the only accredited institution in the country to accept international students.
Plus, you’ll have plenty of time to prepare, because your application will be sent to schools across the country.
You also need to have a GPA of 3.5 or higher, and be enrolled in at least one class of study.

Start your own business.
You’re not limited to making a few sales on the side, either.
The business you start can help you get your foot in the door, especially if you’ve already built a reputation and a following.
This includes starting a small business, starting a business on your own, or even building a small brand in your community.
You could even start your own local restaurant.

Get a tattoo.
Whether you’re a budding entrepreneur or an aspiring artist, getting a tattoo can be an exciting and meaningful way to show your love for the arts.
You might have to do it by yourself, but it’s an opportunity for your community to showcase your talent.
Whether it’s a simple one-page design, a simple piece of art, or a complex and expensive tattoo, there is no shortage of options out there.

Learn the ropes of writing.
When it comes to writing, you need to understand the basics.
You need a good vocabulary and a writing notebook to help you communicate your ideas effectively.
To help you along, here’s a list to get you started: The Basics of Writing: How To Write and Draw An Introduction to Writing (2nd Edition) by Charles Babbage (Oxford University Press)7.
Start up a startup.
If this sounds like a no-brainer, it probably is.
Startups aren’t limited to just anyone.
Start-ups that grow their business to the point of profitability are often highly regarded and valued by the public, as are businesses that are profitable, but fail to meet their mission or financial targets.
The best companies to consider are those that make the most money in a short period of time.
These include those that provide products and services like advertising, content, or social media.
You may be surprised at what you’ll learn and how you can take your ideas and turn them into something meaningful.
