If your booksmart, clean cut, and have a desire to succeed when you finish highschool, you could get in touch with the owner of Hickory Park in Ames, Iowa. His business is thriving! A lot of college kids pay their way while working for him. It serves Tons, litterally, of meat each week! It's hard work but that's what your asking for! Look it up on facebook, ect. We live over 100 miles away and made a special return trip after we discovered it! Oh, and there is no such thing as a small business with all the government intervention these days. If you don't like book work get out now. On the other hand, I look back on how many things I was involved with at your age and wounder how I did it all so well! Commitment and patients is the key.
