THE STUDENT ENTREPRENEUR
For a student in school, the ability to manage an enterprise, no matter how minuscule it may be; will guarantee how far he/she would go in the business world. Below we will outline some tips and practices that will help a person journey through school while being successful in both academics and business.
Plan your school activities objectively, identify all the free times you can squeeze out from it, and fill them with your business activities- providing these activities will not overly drain your mental and physical energies for the next day's school work. No matter your desire for success, leave sufficient time for interacting with friends and resting. If you allow yourself to break down under too much work and activity, you will lose out eventually.
Make every second count; School Hostel environments usually encourage mindless chatting. Avoid being dragged into arguing with people who are neither constructive nor reasonable. The precious time you spend in arguing about premiership football (EPL) or politics or big brother could be utilized for increasing your online market reach. Work according to plans- for it is said that;
"The man who has failed to plan, has conscientiously planned to fail"
While looking for opportunity, ensure you are prepared for it when it comes. Develop and rehearse a three minutes pitch of your business activity and why it is not just important to you and your community, but to your probable investor.
Opportunities come in many disguises, do not get utterly discouraged at every downfall, bounce back up and look for the positivity in the situation.
Out of adversity comes advantage. Employ patience- for it is a virtue, and opportunity will single you out for success. Only, just be prepared when it comes knocking on your door.
The kind of passion and enthusiasm being talked about here is that of a stubborn or tenacious nature. Hold strongly to the vision of success, conceptualize what your business should be even after school, and work towards it. Noting good comes easy, according to Steve Jobs; If you love what you do, and do what you love, work ceases to become drudgery and boring; but instead becomes fun.
Coping with a business while in school is no easy task, It could be that you are into sales of clothing and accessories like perfume, or you have a photocopy center, or run a photography and passport studio. The list of businesses a person can do in school is endless. What is most important is the tenacious drive of the student: A mind for business and a desire for success is the basic recipe for sustaining and managing a business while in school.
And as we always say, "Trust in the Creator, and He shall direct your path."
