Build Your New Business in College With These 6 Tips | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
Are you interested in becoming a student entrepreneur? This article has 6 great business ideas along with actionable tips to get you started
janlgordon's insight:

I selected this article from Curatti written by Tia Moreen because it explains how even students can start their own business venture.

 

How start a new business online while attending college.

 

So You Want to be a Student Entrepreneur?

 

You can be successful while studying for your degree. I agree that with the right knowledge and tools you can begin your own business.

 

Moreen explains the pros and cons of being a student entrepreneur and how to begin the process.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Those who are in their twenties are more apt to be risk takers. These students can leverage their connections with fellow classmates and professors.

 

  • Raising enough capital is one of the biggest challenges of starting a new business. Spending less time with friends and family is also a reality.

 

  • As a business owner you can learn a lot of new skills as you start to wear several hats. Not only are you the manager, but you are also the marketer, accountant, and financier.

Digital Learning: Changing What It Means to be A Reader, Publisher & Curator

Digital Learning:  Changing What It Means to be A Reader, Publisher & Curator | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Julia Steiny who is a freelance columnist whose work also regularly appears at EducationNews.org. She is the founding director of the Youth Restoration Project.


Once I finish curating this piece I'm going to put these two women in my Julia Steiny and Angela Maiers  who has contributed some valuable insights in this article as well as being an extraordinary educator in my "People to Watch" topic  these women are truly making a difference in the world.


Excerpt:


Divide Separates Adults From Kids


The old divide was between the haves and the have-nots. Computer access was a luxury of well-heeled families and school systems.


Now, most kids at least carry a cell phone with text capabilities. The new divide is between those at home in cyberspace and those who struggle with e-mail.


**This divide separates adults from kids.


Education-tech expert Angela Maiers makes this distinction:


****“The 21st century will not be defined by the volume or speed at which you consume information. (That was the old way of being smart.)


****It will be defined by how well you curate that information, translate it and contribute information back in a way that your community can understand it."


**Teaching students to be competent curators is our main responsibility as educators.”


This quote from Angela Maiers caught my attention:


Maiers cautions, “Everyone has to learn how to enter the ocean, because a wrong move can drown you. The second you stop honoring the force of the ocean, you’re in danger.”
