Employment & Entrepreneurship

Question: "What are some of the ideas you have for helping youth to find employment?"

I know the job market is terrible, and most of you are worried about your ability to get a job and simply survive.

Be open to part-time, freelance, or volunteer opportunities.  That’s what I did, as I started to develop an entrepreneurial mindset, and eventually started by own home-based business.  I knew that before there was the industrial revolution, people were all entrepreneurs.  They didn’t rely on a boss for a paycheck, nor does everyone need to.

What’s important are developing/helping you develop skills for daily living, and cultivating talents you can barter and trade.  Get involved in co-ops and communities that leverage their resources so you don’t need to use as much money to live.  All these new possibilities are available for you at your fingertips through the Internet.

Think of an idea for a business, and then find people and associations that can help turn that into a reality.  Our government can support you by offering more programs and loans for entrepreneurs, such as a microloan programs for students, which have been proven to be successful in other countries.
