Fortunately, I had no work to do so I helped Danny with his radio advertisement. Then we watched an episode of shark tank and then worked on our “specialty document”. This could be a lot of different things. Most kids designed billboards, but I made a price list of the different products I would sell at Quickwich. Then we went to lunch at DiFranco’s, which I thought was really good. In the afternoon I played card games with Mr. Fowler’s winterim.

Luis: Yesterday, i finished my radio ad, business cards, newspaper ad, and postcard. Most of them were pretty similar. I think making my radio ad was the hardest because I couldn’t figure out how the music was louder than my voice.

Pedro:today i DID MY business card and letterhead. I did my radio ad. We watched another show called the profit. Then we worked all day long.

Jack: today I recorded and finished my radio ad, then I worked on my postcard and finished that. Instead of watching shark tank we watched a different show called “the profit.” Which was not as good as shark tank

Jackson: Yesterday I made both a business card and a letterhead. I helped some others with their radio ads because I was able to finish that on Saturday. We watch a new business show called “The Profit”. In the show, a man helped out an aspiring entrepreneur, who was looking to start a tortilla business. I learned a lot from this show about the obstacles one might face when trying to start a business.

Visit to NutMeg Spice Company

Danny – Today we went to the nutmeg company, and saw a lot more than we thought we would. We learned how Greg got started in his garage and what drove him to want to start it up. He gave us a tour of his warehouse and addressed his problem of not knowing the number on the packages saying 2 he does know where one is or if there are more than 2, so he told his workers to write the number then of how many there are. We showed us how he fills the bottles and how he labels. He also shared with us how he isn’t in sales and how his partner and him are perfect together because his business partner is really good in sales. He shared his difficulties and how he wants to work with the company until he dies. We then left and went to five guys and rode back. People had a chance to catch up on writing their job descriptions. Tomorrow shall be fun continuing along our businesses

Joey- today we visited nutmeg spice company and talked with one of the owners. After the talk we went for a tour around the factory. After that went out for lunch at five guys and had lots of fun. Later on we came back and worked. During that time i finished up my job description.

Pedro-today we went to the company nutmeg. We talked to the owner. He talked all about the company and how it started. He gave us some advice. We saw the whole company. We saw How they bottle all the spice and how they put the label. After all that we went out to lunch at five guys.

Hill Carden- We woke up and went to the nutmeg spice company-, The owner gave us a great talk. He talked about our businesses and gave us insight to each won and told us to reach out to him and he can look it over and give us advice. After the wonderful tour Mr. Bergen was gracious enough to take us to five guys after five guys we came back and wrapped up our Job descriptions.

Jack – Today we went to the Nutmeg company and met the owner.
Matt- In the morning we went to a local business in TerryVille. There busines was called Nutmeg company. He told us his life story about how it was a strug gle getting money. We asked him a bunch of questions about how he became successful and how he could help us. Then Mr.Bergen brought us to five guys and we went back and wrote up Job descriptions for our businesses we are trying to start.

Day Two – Logo’s/Slogans/website designs

 

Jack – Today we watched a few episodes of shark tank, then we worked on our business proposal. Mr. Bergen was then nice enough to take us to Ollies for pizza. When we got back we continued to work on our business and made headway into our website design.

 

Matt – We watched a lot of shark tank and during the show we wrote down all the names of the businesses they interviewed. After the show we looked up each of the businesses and see where they were at today. We then began working on our logo and slogan for our businesses which took a long time because I wanted to see how good I can get it. By the end of the afternoon I was working on my Website design layout. It didn’t look to appealing on paper, but I would  look great on a screen in my opinion.

 

Jackson On day 2 we watched a few more episodes of Shark Tank, and then worked on our logo, slogan, and website design for our business. The logo took me longer then I expected, but I like the way it turned out. I’m also proud of my slogan, “keep it rollin’”. I like this slogan because it describes what my business does. It’s a drive-through sandwich place, so technically we keep people’s cars rolling by not making them park and get out for their food. Plus, sandwiches are made on rolls, so there’s a pun there. We ate lunch at Ollie’s and it was really good.

 

Hill Carden– Today I missed the first half of classes out with my mom so i came back in the afternoon. I got right to working on my logo and slogan. I am wrapping up my website design right now.

Entrepreneurship – starting your own business!

Is Starting a Business / Entrepreneurship For You?

Starting your own business can be an exciting and rewarding experience. It can offer numerous advantages such as being your own boss, setting your own schedule and making a living doing something you enjoy. But, becoming a successful entrepreneur requires thorough planning, creativity, and hard work.

During this Winterim 2017 we as a group are going to look at the following characteristics and skills commonly associated with successful entrepreneurs:

  • Comfortable with taking risks: Being your own boss also means you’re the one making tough decisions. Entrepreneurship involves uncertainty. Do you avoid uncertainty in life at all costs? If yes, then entrepreneurship may not be the best fit for you. Do you enjoy the thrill of taking calculated risks? Then read on.
  • Independent: Entrepreneurs have to make a lot of decisions on their own. If you find you can trust your instincts — and you’re not afraid of rejection every now and then — you could be on your way to being an entrepreneur.
  • Persuasive: You may have the greatest idea in the world, but if you cannot persuade customers, employees and potential lenders or partners, you may find entrepreneurship to be challenging. If you enjoy public speaking, engage new people with ease and find you make compelling arguments grounded in facts, it’s likely you’re poised to make your idea succeed.
  • Able to negotiate: As a small business owner, you will need to negotiate everything from leases to contract terms to rates. Polished negotiation skills will help you save money and keep your business running smoothly.
  • Creative: Are you able to think of new ideas? Can you imagine new ways to solve problems? Entrepreneurs must be able to think creatively. If you have insights on how to take advantage of new opportunities, entrepreneurship may be a good fit.
  • Supported by others: Before you start a business, it’s important to have a strong support system in place. You’ll be forced to make many important decisions, especially in the first months of opening your business. If you do not have a support network of people to help you, consider finding a business mentor. A business mentor is someone who is experienced, successful and willing to provide advice and guidance.
