Youthfulness comes with a wide range of advantages and disadvantages too. Those in their late teenage life or slightly above teenage, in particular, boasts of unmatched physical fitness and flexibility but suffer from acute naivety. Youths in this group can work for a whole day and even late into the night; they are energetic. Even with that energy, however, inexperience in business and life naivety becomes a major hindrance to their success. Sawyer Howitt explores the various entrepreneurial options youths have and advise them on the steps to take towards realizing their entrepreneurial potential.
Things to Do For Young Entrepreneurs
To begin with, Sawyer Howitt advice that even in the midst of inexperience, the best thing for youth to do is to set the entrepreneurship ball rolling. According to him, waiting until one accumulates enough experience to start a business is tantamount to wasting a golden opportunity and a waste of time. There is nothing like enough experience; everyone learns along the journey.
Secondly, every youthful entrepreneur must be careful when hiring new employees. Howitt explains that since the new additional staff is needed from time to time in any growing business, it is imperative that the owner sets a certain culture that every employee follows. Howitt goes further and explains that professional qualifications are secondary to a business culture, and therefore employees must be gauged on how well they adapt to the business culture as opposed to their academic papers.
Howitt warns young entrepreneurs against the shiny object syndrome– wanting to establish many business avenues simultaneously. He advises that starting many businesses reduces efficiency in one’s main business. It is, therefore, wiser to note down any business idea that comes by, but first, wait until one business is fully established before establishing new ones.
