Jaris B's insight:

My thoughts:

The article says that many peoople do no like working for a corporate or being told what to do. There are 7 clues to know if you want to create your own business but only a few stood out to me. One of the clues is why do you want to start a business? You want to be clear what motivates you. Another step is be clear about your professional goal. When you set your goals, you should encounter your personal and business goals. The article mentioned someone wanting to work on the weekends but also wanted to spend time with her grandchildren. If you own a business, you should do what you want to do. Do not make yourself suffer.

Explore The Variety of Job Opportunities For Those With A Business ...

Online Business Degrees When it comes time to pursue a degree, many individuals are lost as to which subject they should pick.
Jaris B's insight:

My thoughts:

The article was makes you realize that a business degree can offer many different careers unlike different degrees where it only applies to a couple careers. A business degree can offer dozens of careers. Some careers that were mentioned in the article was entrepreneurship, marketing managing, personal financial advising, statistician, and human resources. Marketing management is the career I want right after college. It says that it is one of the top careers graduates pursue. The description from the article says that the marketing manager is the person that oversees the marketing department. And that marketing is the promotion of a company product or brand through careful observation, customer interaction and advertising. Marketing managers are able to make lucrative salaries when working with larger companies. If I recieve a business degree and do not like market management, I have many options to choose from. But my overall goal in life is to own my own business.

Marketing Jobs and Careers. Ruling The Business World Through Entrepreneurial Courses. By Brown Young. Business possibilities can already be found in all parts of the planet today. However ...

My thoughts:

The article states that the first step to realizing one's dream of being an entrepreneur is to engage in entrepreneurship courses. These are academic trainings that do not require full time education under a 4-year course. They're just simply aimed at educating the people regarding the basics in being an entrepreneur. The principles being discussed include the meaning and impact of supply alongside demand, e-commerce, techniques for sales and marketing, and the up-to-date tax laws of Singapore. In order to succeed in the field of entrepreneurship, it doesn't necessitate memorizing all the principles that were mentioned. Bear in mind that even the most well-informed person can't be given an assurance that he/ she will be successful in the business world. I think the article is trying to imply that you don't need a college degree to become an entrepreneur. But you need skills and understanding of meaning and impact of supply alongside demand, e-commerce, techniques for sales and marketing. I believe this is accurate because an entrepreneur does not need a college degree to become successful. You can understand the concepts of business, but you just have to understand what you are doing. I compare it to a baseball player. A baseball player understands how to play the game, but will need guidance to become more successful. Same concept as an entrepreneur . You may understand how business works, but you will need guidance and others to help. You cannot run a business on your own. Also I believe there is no right or wrong way to run a business. If something is working well, stick with it. If something is not working, change it.

My thoughts:

 To be an entrepreneur you want a diverse support and advisory network as you build your business. Take advice and feedback from multiple people. There is no one individual will have everything you need and there is no correct way to run a business. Credibility matters and ask for specifics on education, training, real-world experience or anything else that matters to you. If someone you’re working or partnering with has what you’re looking for, they will be happy to share it with you. The International Coach’s Federation (ICF) is the accrediting body for professional coaches worldwide. The ICF holds all of its members to specific levels of training, experience and continued education. While certifications such as these don’t guarantee results, they do demonstrate a professional commitment on the part of the individual. Trust yourself first because the author believes that we thrive when we ask for help and collaborate with others. However, at the end of the day the business is yours. As the CEO of a business, it’s important to hone and trust those internal cues so that you can be agile, flexible and resilient in your business decisions. But most importantly you should take responsibility for your results.

... to an entrepreneur can be daunting. Tara Hornor takes us through ways that help you get through this initial intimidation and provides resources for those looking for a jump start with their new business.

 

 

My thoughts:

Being an entrepreneur benefits can include choosing your own hours and taking vacation days whenever you want. You have control of the business and there is no one to blame except yourself. Although owning your own business sounds fun, you have to put in a lot of work and know what exactly what you are doing. You have to be careful because the Small Business Administration (PDF) reports that 30% of small businesses that start will close their doors within two years and only 25% will survive for ten years. When you start a business, you have to know how long it will take you to make profit. Taking pride in what you hope to accomplish is a great way to step back from the temporary feeling of burnout and re-focus your efforts. If you can’t keep yourself moving towards a goal and can’t prioritize tasks, it is going to be difficult to be successful as an entrepreneur. Overall I think this fits me because I do not like being told what to do. Also I like challenges and even taking risks and owning a business will involve a lot of risks. I like taking risks because the risk factor is usually something that you will be greatly rewarded. I have thinking about owning a shoe business that will have exclusive shoes such as Nike and Jordans. Collectors are always willing to spend thousands of dollars on shoes. I am collector as well and I know which shoes that is rare or valuable. But I will also need to learn how to actually run a business. I feel that I will be passionate about my job and I could say “I love my job”. Also a small business can lead to big success such as Nike. But also have to encounter that you can go into a big downfall and go in debt if you are not careful. It is important for me to know how to run a business and I will accomplish this by going to a college. I also may want to work in a business environment before I start my own business and see how it works rather than just being told.

Jaris B's insight:

My thoughts:This article reminds me of the "American dream." Business is on a rise and I think a lot of people want to own a business just like me. You can choose your hours, take vacations, earn a lot of money if you are successful, and have full power of your business. The article was very statistical and is hard to reflect. But it came across different countries. That is where I thought of the "American dream." Some countries do not have power to your own business. I think anyone should own a business. I think I got what it takes. I will go to college and learn how to run a business. I think anyone can be successful as long as they put effort. But to be more than successful, you must hungry. They say to live your dreams. Owning a business has been a dream for me for awhile.

My thoughts:

I really enjoyed this article/story because this very similar how I want my career to be. I want to work at a company that does business where I can learn from. I will see visually how everything plays out. While working, I will have steady income and then on my free time I can have a separate business. Once I see that my small business is gradually growing and I have enough money, I can then become my own business.

Susan Idama is a Marketing advisor and she shares and interact with young entrepreneurs from around the world using her social media tool. ... At SheBuzz we will teach you how to do this and push your business forward.

My thoughts:

Susan Idama has ten steps/tips to entrepreneurial success. The first step is to to decide why you are in business. Is it for money, lifestyle, fame, giving back, helping others or perhaps a combination of reasons? The second step is evaluate where you are in your business. If you’re just starting out, focus on the basic building blocks before you move on to more advanced strategies. However if you realize something is not working, you should change it. The third step is get out of your comfort zone because you want to see problems as challenges that are meant to be overcome. The fourth step is pay attention to your intuition. Follow your passion and try your hand on everything you wished to do. If you are not making money it is time to move on to the next project. Step five tells you to get a mentor. A mentor is important because will he/she will teach you how to push your business forward. Also mentoring resources are a one step to connecting directly with positive people to help you and your business grow. The sixth step is to connect with positive mind. Make sure you are connecting with positive, enthusiastic, forward-thinkers who want the best for those around them and ask for help and advice. The seventh step time management. You should be wise with your time. Learn how to delegate tasks; this is where your network comes. Step eight is to brainstorm. At the end of each day, you should make a list of everything that you have done and what is needed to do. This gets you in a good routine to work more productively. Step nine is to have a "me time". I think the author is trying to imply to have a fun time to set your business away from your life to be stress free. The tenth step is take action. Many people have ideas but don't action. You should take action although you may not be successful every time. Overall I think this was great article. I may want come back to reference this article if I want to focus on becoming an entrepreneur.

My thoughts:  

From the article I learned that almost every city in the United States has organizations to promote business, networking, and resources to accelerate your business. Best of all, their programs are often subsidized and primarily volunteer-driven. It is a great way to meet executives and to work alongside with other ones. Facebook is the world’s largest social network and there are 4 million plus businesses that have created a profile page and it is free. Twitter is also a great way to reach out to others. Twitter is a great because it allows anyone in the world with a Twitter to account to read your daily company updates, who you follow, and what you like. It’s also a great way to find out what your customers are talking about online as you develop your business’ offerings. You can also figure out what your customers interests are. There are entrepreneur network organizations, and this is a great way to bond with fellow collegiate entrepreneurs, meet mentors and getting free resources to help your business execute faster. The most important thing that I learned from the article is that employment will help you guide you in the right way. You should work for someone else and learn from them, give ideas and feedback, and even find ways to market your business. Working for another company can help you hone your sales skills, marketing tactics and even learn best organizational practices that can benefit your own business. Overall they are many ways to promote your business and a lot it can be free. You should get out to programs and get guidance from mentors and other entrepreneurs. Also it is great to get employed and experience what it takes to become your own boss.
