I’ll be speaking the 10th Grade Career day at Piedmont Virginia Community College on 12 March:
You will be in a classroom with about 22 students (plus a teacher) who have signed up to hear about a career in business and as an Entrepreneur. Students want to hear about the training and education needed to be successful, what job opportunities are available, what you do day-to-day, what you like and do not like about the job. I realize careers in this category can vary widely; you can try to give an overview and also talk about your own personal experiences and how you came to be in your own career.
This opportunity to speak fits in perfectly with my goal this year of building and contributing to the Charlottesville community; I’m excited.
Any thoughts on what to say to aspiring entrepreneurs? I think that a down economy is the most opportune time to make a venture into the world of self-employment.
