With the economic downturn, in all major business schools, students refuse from their business class and move to lessons where they think they have a secure future. Students and professionals who once planned to start a business decided to return to their whimsical jobs. Everything is going well. Or at least that seems to be the case. Below are nine reasons why a student should start a business.
- You have gained an experience. Get and start your own business, an incredible way to gain experience and accreditation, regardless of whether you decide to stay in business after finishing. Heim Gonzalez of Oklahoma State University has received the highest job offer in his graduating class. Now there are two throats. First, he was the founder of IT consulting company, the second – 2.4 GPA. Hmmm … Do you wonder if business starts to get a better job when you are finished?
- You have nothing to lose. I think it's safe to say that many students have drowned their parents & # 39; chexbook when it comes to paying bills. In general, students do not pay child support, rent, utility costs, and much more. The worst thing that can happen if your business fails is that you get a job, have an incredible certificate in your resume, and have experience that will increase your chances of success in the future. The best thing that can happen is that you will become the next Microsoft. I do not know about you, but I think it's better than working and choosing between jobs that you're just for money.
- Two-thirds of monkeys are businessmen, according to Thomas Stanley and William Dann, authors Millionaire Intellectual: . If that's what you want, then consider entrepreneurship. You get not only salaries but also a lot of money if you are successful in selling your company or selling it publicly. Michael Furtick, a successful young businessman, managed to sell his business to MyDesktop.com when he was 16 years old for $ 1 million.
- You are developing networking skills. You probably have heard that your network increases your net worth. Take into account that by maintaining business and being a regular business community you will develop excellent communication. If you choose to work after the job, you will have a large pool of people who will be happy to hire you or send your resume to someone who wants to.
- You raise your value. Simply fix your business in college by raising the "brand name to you" value and gives you more options. For example, a business owner with a great brand value can publish a book, a star, a documentary (ie Startup.com) or just above another company. Recently, I met one of the founders of the Diversity Planet for minorities. He worked for one year and then left a report at Dateline's NBC at the age of 20. People often do not have such a chance until they are bigger.
- Long-term profitable business profit is less risky than being a long-term employee. For example, just look at the recent economic downturn. Tens of thousands of people have been dismissed. Can I guarantee the lucrative business owners still in business? They will be the last people to come down by boat. Business owners can import multiple streams from different customers. If you are an employee, you only have one income stream, so there is a greater risk.
- You will learn more about yourself and what they do not teach or prepare in school. Moreover, entrepreneurship is a combination of all business types. It includes knowledge of marketing, accounting, management and operation. You already know these topics before going through their classes, allowing you to clearly see how everything is applied. In addition, you will be able to learn early on what topics you want, so you can make better decisions about what major and what targets are.
- That's yours. You create rules, create your own hours, work from where you want and choose who you want to work. You can also choose which interests you have created in the world and then start a business that is related to that topic. If you want art, you can start the design business. If you like marketing, you can create or choose a product and then market it. If you want to write, you can write a book and do your own public relations and marketing. If you want the Internet, you can start a web development job.
- Are you growing up? I personally had a lot to do with business. I was scared to speak to others. Now I look forward to it. Before having a business, I probably read only five books out of school, and I just read them because my mother put it on me. As I start my business, I'm probably reading more than 100 books. The business also allowed me to learn more. I know that I will become a businessman in some form, way or manner.
