If you're taking an interest in BizKidz and the things we have to offer on our wonderful website, chances are, you're already bursting with entrepreneurial skills you're eager to hone! You might even already be clued in to what Entrepreneurs are and what they do. But just in case you're not, here's everything you need to know!
Simply put, Entrepreneurs are people who take risks and set up businesses! You probably know the name of an entrepreneur, whether from the news, or simply from their successes. People like Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and Deborah Meaden have all taken a great risk in business and succeeded from it! There are loads of skills that define a person as entrepreneurial.
You need to have an idea, and research it, building up the skills that you need to be able to support the idea. Entrepreneurs are experts in their field and have often worked hard to get exactly where they'd like to be! What is something that you're really good at? Do you have the entrepreneurial skills to make it into a business?
As we mentioned, Entrepreneurs also take risks! We're not talking about the risk of jumping out of planes and skydiving, or white water rafting - we're talking about calculated risks in business! This means taking educated steps towards your goals, when you aren't certain what the outcome will be. If you do your research before hand and you're acting on sound advice, you'll be one step closer to success!
They also need to have good communication and networking skills. We see a lot of this in our BizKidz Community, where our BizKidz can safely chat and build on each others websites and ideas together. Entrepreneurs build each other up and build on their communication skills in the process.
All entrepreneurs need to have a good mindset, and be well motivated towards success. We encourage our BizKidz to form a vision board each and to dream big, so that they know where to direct their energy.
