Arianne Polonsky Professor Mary Gale Entrepreneurship and opportunity September 16, 2014 The Monk and the Riddle Ever since I was a child I wanted to follow my parent’s steps and become an entrepreneur. I have always thought that the most important rule when thinking about a new business project was to think financially what would benefit me rather than to think personally. After reading The Monk & the Riddle I agree with Komisar that an entrepreneur is most likely to be successful when following his/her passion. The most surprising thing to me about entrepreneurship in this book is the assertion by Randy that the business is like creative work like printing, and not necessarily a financial institution. Many people think that the importance
Many people list the personal characteristics that are needed for successful entrepreneurs. Thus, according to Surridge and Gillespie (2012), “have defined the term successful entrepreneurs as someone who is prepared to work very hard, especially in the initial stages of setting up the business” (p. 7). Cynthia (2009), “explained entrepreneurs as people who own, operate and take risks of a business venture”. There many characteristics that successful entrepreneur should have in order to start up and operate the business. If you are willing to be an entrepreneur here are characteristics that an entrepreneur should have.
Although some would argue that the successful ones are just lucky, it does comes without saying that you must be more than just lucky to actually succeed. Luck is what can help you get there. Your ideas, knowledge, reactions and actions are the actual driving forces to becoming a successful entrepreneur. So exactly how does one become a successful entrepreneur? Here we list out 10 of the most important qualities an entrepreneur should possess.
One of my expectations that I have about this career is to have a good schedule where I can develop other activities. I want to obtain the necessary tools and knowledge to be capable of doing business in the world market either by importing goods or exporting non-traditional products. Also, I want to improve myself as a professional, and achieve an important position in a company, so one day I can develop my own company. I want to be able of taking advantage of the opportunities that arise, and overcome the challenges imposed on me. Especially, the most important thing that I have in mind, is to be able to enjoy my career.
When I am done with high school I hope I can go to college and meet my dreams. The three most important skills that I developed in the internships were having well-listening skills, keeping an open mind and teamwork skills. Which will be really important
This will assist me in making me gain business leadership and management skills which I believe play an important role in my organization. To be engaged in high-level challenging business management has always been my long term professional goal. A challenging profession is what I am most
In addition to providing students with real workplace experience, internships enhance student’s development. Vocational development, intellectual development, personal growth & community service are four major functions of internships. Students are able to gain experience in public speaking & voicing opinions to fellow co-workers. They are given the opportunity to observe the word of others & learn from their own job responsibilities. By absorb their self in internship students gain a sneak peek into what their future careers in a particular field.
Thankfully, my career counselor helped me out and found me the best career for me that has two of my passions which is business and helping people out. I honestly believe that this goal has driven to my achiever and strategic qualities. My achiever quality has always driven me to strive for more than people expect from me. So, by me achieving this career, I would be proving people wrong that I am more than what they expected. My strategic quality has also always driven me to always get the best of both worlds for me.
Of course, everyone has a career goal of what they want to be when they grow up. For having this career goal as one of my goals, I would like to talk about my career future and who I want to be once I graduate from high school and university. I decided I want to be a businesswoman, why? Well first, I like creating my food, cooking, baking, and at the same time I enjoy marketing them around my friends and family. At the same time, I think I can manage to own a business, as you can see I can major any kind of business since I like to market, own, and create.
