Starting a business while in college is one of the best things that any student entrepreneur can ever do. While in college, you are immersed in a world of contacts, friends, and information.
Yes, everybody wants to start a business nowadays, but how many students do you know that actually follow-through with their ideas? I personally donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know manyÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ maybe a few.
To me, the whole point of college is to network, interact, and attempt to find your true calling in life. For those of you who have found what you want to do in life, the next step is to actually do it!
DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be one of the Ã¢â‚¬Å“BlahÃ¢â‚¬Â¦blah…blahÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â student entrepreneurs who talk the talk but never walk the walk. If you have an idea, then implement it. If you have a vision, then make it a reality.
For me, most of the classes I took in college bored me. During my last years, I started taking internet and business course which really, really held my interest. It was great because I was actually able to talk about my business and share what I knew with the class.
My professors really appreciated the insight that I brought to the class. Point being, definitely take classes that will help foster your entrepreneurial mind Ã¢â‚¬â€œ thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s what college is all about, networking, socializing, and spreading your knowledge.
For many of us college is a one time thing, so take advantage of it. Make the most of your time and start your first business if you havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t already done so. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s likely that the atmosphere of college and the interactions that you encounter will never be replicated again once you graduate Ã¢â‚¬â€œ at least not like how you had it in college.
So yeahÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ have a blast in college, but also be smart and take risks by starting a business. One day youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll look back at your college years and reminisce about the times when you were bootstrapping a business that eventually turned into something so great.
