A short talk about Entrepreneurship leads to a greater vision
Hey, let me tell you a story.
Just last week, I had the privilege to be invited and be a speaker in 4 sections of an Entrepreneurship class in UST, the oldest university in the Philippines.
A friend of mine who was a former professon in my alma mater, Adamson University, has just transferred to a new school and was tasked to handle an Entrepreneurship class. In his first semester of teaching in his new school, he already was asked to handle 4 sections of Entrepreneurship!
This is a class of graduating Information Systems students and Entrepreneurship is one of their minor subjects included in their curriculum. Taking a closer look, I realized that it is a very important subject for them as their probable career after graduation is to establish their own firm or at least be a freelancer or self-employed. This gave me more reason to do better in my talk.
My friend, who is their professor, confessed to me that he only had a short stint in business and he knows that he lacks experience to share to these students and that’s why he asked for help. I am grateful that I said yes to this because this is one of the best 2 .5-hour modules I have delivered so far!
I am asked to talk about my experience in running a start-up business, my struggles in the past, and how did I overcome those struggles, as well as the rewards I had because I did not give up on my dreams. I also made some slides about what investors might look in order to invest in a start-up business. I spent 1 day of my life developing the slides for my module.
I had 2 sessions composed of almost 100 students per batch and the response was awesome! I didn’t realize before that I had a wonderful story to tell the students as I have small business experiences starting when I was 15. More that half of the time, I was just talking about my story, and I saw how the participants were so interested and that they can relate. Most importantly, I also share my mindset and how I think when I was an aspiring entrepreneur like them.
In the end, after my 2.5-hour talk, a number of participants approached me and even stayed for another 30-minutes just to have their questions answered. I felt so blessed to be able to share my experiences with them.
I am doing this work because I feel so blessed being able to start in business early. My first experience started when I was 15. At age 22, I am already a millionaire. Not bad. Actually, it’s awesome!
I believe that the youth, our younger generation, has the best potential to be millionaires too and be a game changer in this ever evolving world and help out nation be one of the best!
To further support this cause, I launched my website designed specifically for those who want to be Young Millionaires . You may visit http://youngmillionaires.djdimaliuat.com or share this link to your friends and relatives if you also want them to be inspired by my story.
PS. Being in sales is also one of the best and fastest ways to earn your first million ! I found a perfect book to those who want to learn the arts and crafts of Sales and WHY YOU SHOULD BE PROUD to be in this business.
