Today's generation is all about being your own boss, and business owners are getting younger and younger every year. Between Oprah and Ellen there are more young entrepreneurs being discovered everyday. It makes me wonder how a thirteen year old can become a millionaire simply from taking soda caps and turning them into magnetic jewelry, while adults are being incarcerated for fraud and theft. People today face many difficulties financially; with the economy unstable and job loss at an all time high many Americans are looking to other ways to support themselves and their families. The number one alternative to working for someone else is becoming your own boss, and many young people today are doing just that. Taking matters into their own hands, and using their talents or ideas and marketing themselves through social networks and media. It's refreshing to see just how many young people are setting the example for young adults their age and older.
Being a business owner requires not only an idea or a vision, but a financial backbone to help get the business off the ground, whether by means of a loan, grant, or borrowing from friends and family, and in some cases it helps also to have a strong team of supporters to help in the process. At times having supporters works out for the best and in other cases not so much, but it's important as a business owner to believe your product ten times more than anyone else working for you or around you for the business to succeed. As an entrepreneur there is much to know and understand about what it is your investing in because during "times like these", many people are only interested in what they need NOW and NOT what they can do without. It's fascinating to see just how many young adults understand this concept, and are successful business owners because they took a simple idea or unique talent they knew to be the next big thing or useful to people in their local area or around the world. Today we will be talking to four women about how they started their journey to becoming an entrepreneur and successfully constructed their business to benefit their lifestyle and futures.
