Advice from Entrepreneurs

Teach your kids from an early age that math is used in real life.  They will use math if they create a budget, become an entrepreneur, use a recipe, make a dress using a pattern, and so many more things.

A potentially great way to show kids how they can use math in real life is to have them to start their own business.

I will be interviewing different entrepreneurs and bringing you advice from them.

Christian Homeschool Entrepreneurship

The first entrepreneur in this series is Mark from Christian Homeschool Entrepreneurship.

Here is some advice from him:

What are some things you like about being an entrepreneur?
Being an entrepreneur is so much fun!  It allows a person to think creatively and problem solve and think outside the box.  As a career, being an entrepreneur allows for some incredible flexibility and the potential for great financial reward (which can be used for God’s kingdom in many ways).
What are some ways you use math in your business?
Running a business definitely requires being sharp with numbers and math.  There are so many times that an entrepreneur finds himself or herself running some quick calculations in their head to figure out their profit margins or to forecast some quick projections.  Having a solid grasp of math will be a great asset to any aspiring entrepreneur.
What advice would you give a child interested in starting a business?
Kids have one of the greatest opportunities to be an entrepreneur.  Because most of their basic needs are already met by their parents, they have the flexibility to take risks that other (older than them) can’t.  The path to becoming a successful entrepreneur is filled with lessons that get learned best by making mistakes.  As a young person, you can make mistakes and learn from them so you are positioned to succeed earlier and go further than others.  Plus, starting a business is really fun!!!
Where can those interested in your business find out more about you?
You can see more about Christian Homeschool Entrepreneurship at CHEclass.com.  You can preview the first two weeks of the course for free on the website.
Thank you so much Mark!

A doTerra Wellness Advocate

The second entrepreneur in this series is Rebecca, a doTerra Wellness Advocate.   She and I attend the same church, and she is such a sweet woman!  I recently purchased some On Guard through her. Keep reading to see the interview questions and answers with Rebecca.
How do you serve others in your business?
I am a Wellness Advocate for doTerra Essential Oils, I provide access to pure Essential oils. I also provide educational classes on how to use oils to promote a healthy lifestyle.
What are some things you like about being an entrepreneur?
I enjoy helping people with their wellness goals. I love seeing when Essential oils work for people and they see results.
What are some ways you use math in your business?
I use math when I order supplies for classes. I also use math when making Essential Oil rollers to make sure the ratio of each oil added is correct for proper dilution.
What advice would you give a child interested in starting a business?
Find something you really love and center your business around that.
Where can those interested in your business find out more about you?
You can learn more about my business on my website.
