Do you have what is takes to be an Entrepreneurs?
Entrepreneurs try to identify and meet a need for a product or service. Entrepreneurs come from all types of backgrounds, may be of any age, and create all kinds of businesses. Some own tiny craft shops, while others own huge construction companies. Entrepreneurs try to identify the needs of the marketplace and to meet those needs by supplying a service or product. When they succeed, their businesses flourish and the profits go to them. When they fail, their companies decline and they may have to go out of business.
Entrepreneurship is a process of looking at things in such a way as to make solutions to problems and perceived needs. Such as, is this idea feasible? Will this idea work?
It is also the willingness to take risks involved with the starting and managing of a business. It is also the qualities needed to function effectively in a business, profit-making context, that is, the ability to identify business opportunities and make deals. Entrepreneurship also refers to the ability to take risks on your own initiative and be able to work in a cost effective way to make a profit.
There are many opportunities for entrepreneurs in each type of business. Manufacturing businesses actually produce the products they sell. Using resources and supplies, they create everything from automobiles to paper. Wholesaling businesses sell products to people other than the final customer. Retailing businesses sell products directly to the people who use or consume them. Service businesses sell services rather than products. They include hotels, hairdressers and repair shops.
Entrepreneurship benefits the economy by filling unmet needs and increasing productivity. It also benefits the economy by providing employment to local inhabitants, paying taxes to government and council and often buying materials from other local businesses, which circulates money around the geographical area. In many cases, the most successful entrepreneurs started businesses that are today large corporations.
The world is full of opportunities for entrepeneurs. Some take existing businesses and turn them into something bigger. Some start new enterprises from the ground up.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.
College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings
The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
