My Life As An Entrepreneur Despite Being A Student - ElochiBlog

Student Entrepreneur Life

Entrepreneurship has been known to be a business venture organized by someone or group of persons which involves taking some risks for it to make a profit. 

Following my Student Entrepreneur Life over the years, I have been asking myself this question; 

“Do I have what it takes to become an Entrepreneur” still yet no right answer to this question. 
Yes, no exact answer was gotten, but I came to realize that what it takes to become an Entrepreneur is your Determination.

Now, I think working towards your mission/vision and believe to achieve your goals can take you to the actualization level of yourself.

Today, I can tell you that my journey of becoming a successful entrepreneur is improving significantly despite being a student

Sit back and relax as I will show you how you can become successful as an entrepreneur while in school. 

Being an entrepreneur is more than getting an excellent job or pursuing a career, it is a lifetime affair. 

An entrepreneur is expected to know what he/she wants in life and where to get it before going into business. 

Also, he/she must be goal oriented and ready to accept failure anytime and any day as a learning experience.

Do you think is possible to be an entrepreneur and a student at the same time? Indeed, yes it is possible. 
How? I will show you, read on.

Now, here are some tips you need to have in mind when going about your Student Entrepreneur Life.

Tips on How to Live a Student Entrepreneur Life and Make Money

1.  Self-Motivated

As a student, to live a Student Entrepreneur Life, you have to be self-motivated in all you do and try to consider every factor surrounding you. 
However, getting yourself motivated requires a lot and hence, money is one of the things to get you motivated. 
So, while starting out to make this money as a student you need to provide value, offer your services or sell something.

All you have to do is to identify a fast selling hot product or services people always look out for then you can provide them at your fee. 
You can as well provide value and offer services with any skill you got and get paid by doing what you love.

Once you are motivated and able to do so, then you see yourself generating self-sustaining income. 
And with this, you minimize the amount of time you seek help from your parents/sponsors.

2.  Increase Your Passion For Skills

Every student has a skill; you just have to find out yours and thereby increase your passion for it. 

Skills could be Digital Skills, ICT skills, Coaching skills, Teaching skills, Writing Skills, Communication Skills etc.
You just have to improve on your skills and get yourself an extra income by offering your values. 

Like me now, am a passionate blogger, I don’t usually just blog for money rather the passion I have for it. 

I try to balance my Student Entrepreneur Life with my education thereby choosing a niche that will give me a lot of time which is mostly Tech because it does not require posting every day. 

And by so doing I see my passion increasing for it every day and makes some extra income even while in school.

3.  Get Yourself Organized

As a student entrepreneur, you have to be organized at all time. 
Every day you wake up very early in the morning just to prepare for school, and at the same time, you are an entrepreneur. 

You need to check out your product sales both online and offline, check out for orders and as well attend to customers.
You need to advertise and promote your products/services and also need much customers or traffic at the same time to make money. 

This can be stressful trying to meet up with business and education, but once you are well-organized everything is being set up.

I could remember back in the days I wasn’t that organized when it comes to my blog

Often I blogged the same morning while trying to prepare for school and it was a bit stressful when I needed to get something online within a few minutes. 

These days its no more possible, I had to plan things and get organized. 

Most of the time I will make up my posts during the weekend, and you will be surprised how good this feels.
All these tips helped me in my Student Entrepreneur Life and till date its still helping me.

You ought to learn to be creative with your talent and add creativity to your products and services which you offer. 

As a student and being an entrepreneur you need to always package yourself by having your tools ever ready with you. 

You can spare extra cash to get a business card having the details of services you render or products you sell and your contacts also included. 

By so doing, you go about with it and give out to people both in school and outside of school to reach a wider customer base. 

Also, you have to explore your talents for any value or skill you possess and then provide your clients or fellow students every reason to come back for more.

5.  Proper use of Social Media

Don’t use the social media only for socializing rather make it a means of you getting traffic and much customers for your business.

Yes, it will yield more positive results for you, thereby bringing requests from other people you don’t know and even in school. 

Too bad, students misuse the internet and social media nowadays just to show off their pictures and new wears. 

NOPE! That is not right, make good use of your social media accounts and boost your earnings in any services you offer.

Me as a blogger, I try as much as possible to optimize my social media accounts with my blog posts and brand and such drives much more traffic to my site.
