Could setting up your own business be something that you would like to do in the future?
Create a Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats analysis for setting up your own business.
In pairs:

Read either the Duncan Bannatyne or the James Dyson account.

Take it in turns to tell your partner about ‘your’ entrepreneur and which qualities/skills you think this person possesses that made them successful.

You must refer to the part of the account shows that they had this quality/skill.

• Self-reliance
What does it take to set up and run a successful business?
If not, why not? If yes, then why
In your PSHCE Books answer the following question with an explanation:
• Resiliency
• Focus
• Invest for the long-term

Overnight success may take 7 to 10 years. Entrepreneurs need to stop, pause and plan on a quarterly basis.
Only by learning to leverage employees, vendors and other resources will an entrepreneur build a scalable company.

They need to learn to network to meet the right people.

Entrepreneurs strive to guarantee they will get honest and timely feedback from all these sources.
Every entrepreneur is a sales person whether they want to be or not.

They work to be there when customers are ready to buy.

Alternately, they know how to let go and move on when they are not.
Successful entrepreneurs realise they don’t know everything and the market is constantly changing.

They stay up to date on new systems, technology, and industry trends.
Allow downtime to reflect on the past and plan for the future.

Always working only leads to burnout physically and emotionally.
While there is a lot of help for the entrepreneur, in the end, they need to be resourceful enough to depend on themselves.
