    Is this grammatically correct? please help

    I still remember in the small days when I was a kid I wanted to be a successful business person. So here I am today, achieving my childhood dream day by day. This is just the 1st step and more to go. And also I'm happy to say that I get all the support from the heaven.

    1st should be written first.
    "..and there is more to go".
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    Achieving my dreams

    Perhaps:

    I still remember when I was a child and I dreamed of becoming a successful businessperson.
    Not a professional teacher

    Re: Achieving my dreams

    What's your objection to calling yourself 'a successful businessman/businesswoman'?
