Entrepreneurial Journal reflection for this Semester.



Closing our semester this week, it has been an incredible journey and wide opening experience as we touch every weekly assignment, planting the seed of entrepreneurial knowledge, risk, tactics and more. If I had one final lecture to share with a group of students on what I had learned from this curse I will share the following.

Keeping the habit of documenting your life journey; adopting this practice of keeping a journal  will allow you to look into a mirror, your own reflection, your own life and growth. Mirrors don’t lie and neither does your documented thoughts and growth. Write inside that journal your goals, dreams, how you feel, anything you consider important and also the unimportant trivial thing in life.

Life is an experiment and Thomas Edison quoted “ I haven’t failed, I've just found 10,000 ways that do not work” keep moving forward  despite any failures or difficult situations and aim  to follow the path of mastery.

  • My last bit of advice to someone wanting to begin the entrepreneur journey will be to encourage him/ her to

build an honest and heart open  relationship with God as he will enlighten the path for you to continue  your journey and life calling even in the midst of stormy and dark times.

D & C 103:36 “ All victory and glory is brought to pass unto you through your diligence, faithfulness and prayers of faith”

 Don’t let your business run your life, listen to the people around you and learn to ask questions and learn to hear the answer to your questions. 


  • Some words of advice, direction, or caution would I leave here today.

Learn to manage life with the time we have is important. Don’t put in peril your  health, emotional level and your family at risk for the persuasion of unclear ventures. Always act with caution and awareness one small investment at the time as entrepreneurial success is not a set destination but a life journey to be enjoyed. 

Set and define your moral and ethical  guard rails and have them present your entire life, as success approaches you so the temptations and lurking waters of betrayal and immorality; you will be ready to recognized them and move away as quick as possible. Don’t consider them, don’t ponder on them, don’t even make them part of your thought. Discard them immediately and seek refuge in our Heavenly Father for strength and clarity of thought and heart. 

Dream big, have fun, enjoy the journey, spread happiness, help some one of many along the way and help future generations to learn through your life experience.

A Journey of Gratitude fills our spirit before the continuation of our life travels.

 


 

 As we are wrapping up for the semester, the  main topic of this week was A Journey of Gratitude, compile with a full feast of articles with great insights and recommendations for the beginner entrepreneur  as the seasoned and experienced on the field of business ventures.

The video clip on" Avoiding the wrong Job" by Stan Christensen had a power message of encouragement and hope, as to encourage the viewer to find out what are we passionate about and the importance of choosing a job that is fun, and we enjoy. As  a majority of percentage of young graduated students are unable to venture right away in a business entrepreneur after leaving school, and having a firm  and clear visual of what our  long term goals and were we are heading will help to narrow down on a few good selections of jobs  that can help grown on the aspect we are heading toward.

 

We all at some point had landed on the wrong job or the not so conductive atmosphere that will help us thrive, it can be a difficult description to take as there is financial responsibilities that we have to meet and letting  go of that sense of financial security at times makes us take the wrong description on staying on these types of jobs.

On the other hand Larry North  on the Entrepreneur Hero video clip.

Christensen invites searching for  good mentors and the importance to do such action; learning and absorbing from good mentors will only bring beneficial results to our own personal progress where we have to find ways to implement that knowledge and put it into good use.




I am looking forward to keep implementing on what was learned this semester; I already put into practice some old concepts in this curse and have seen some improvements and this has sparkle new motivation within. I had indeed acquired new skills, this semester has been mind opening to  view my entrepreneurial life with a new and fresh set of eyes, I am now aware of different opportunities and dangers to be alert,  and how to take a curse of action in case presented. The concept of pursuing passion by exploiting my own talents brings more clarity to my over all-purpose and goal in life as individual and professional. Being aware of such talents and skills learned along the path of life had been mastered planned,  offered and presented at the right time and  opportunity thanks to my Heavenly Father and for such the last decision is up to me to acceptor His gift which by accepting such I am also accepting peace and contentment while pursuing my business ventures based on my skills and talents, the financial and monetary rewards do come once the balance is established.

What is really business for?

                                             

 

    o Based on what you read in the first two pages (pages 3 and 4), why are virtue and integrity so vital to an economy?
The article What’s a Business for? Written by Charles Handy strongly mentions the increase in corruption and frauds in corporations; by keeping a high standard of morality; virtue and and integrity will made a business thrive in a healthy way.  As mention on his article people are natural drawn to do what is right, conceivably the corruption and corporate personal greed has gone so far that new generations may perceived as the normal model and Charles Handy mentions “ Playing the game according to the new rules”  being this the time to pulled back and evaluate our own standards and continue in how our business is running and how can we improve by turning back to the basis of providing a true and honest service to consumers and employees, enabling the door to make responsible decisions and maintaining highly ethical behavior. 
o According to Charles Handy, what is the “real justification” for the existence of businesses?
He mentions that the purpose of a business is to make a profit so that the business can do something more or better; being the “something” the real justification for the existence of the business. 
o What are two solutions proposed by Handy that you agree with? Why?
Business needs to take the lead in areas such as environmental and social sustainability; as is our moral commitment and responsibility as stewards in the care of their planet as a collective group we need to raise conscience and we will see the rewards of natural resources and healthy air and waters reflecting  into our own health improvement; also  the possibility to begin embracing the idea that long work is not necessarily practice in the work area. As productivity has shown in the last decades is not link to long and extensive hours in the place of work. By bringing the stress level down created by long commutes and hours in the place of work the individual can drive in health, problem solving and lead to a more balance and coordinated life.
