How to Manage Running a Business in High School

Brendan Cox reading his new book: "Strictly Business: How to Crush it as a Young Entrepreneur"

Entrepreneurship is one of the most sought after career choices among students these days. Entrepreneurs are respected in society and are following their passion while enjoying success in their business. If you are looking to start a business, there is no better time to start your business than while being in high school. If you are already running a business or thinking of starting one soon, here are some tips for managing a business in high school.

1. Get A Job

Gaining a first-hand experience is an important thing for you and your business. By getting a job while in high school, you gain skills and establish credibility in your industry. Doing this will help running your business be a smoother process.

2. Find A Mentor

Mentors are like godfathers in the business world, whether your mentor is a parent, a successful entrepreneur or a lawyer, you can learn something from everyone. It’s crucial to find a mentor who can help guide you through starting your business, especially at a young age.

3. Embrace Failure

Always remember that success doesn’t happen overnight. Embracing and learning from failure is an important part of growing as a young entrepreneur. If you let failure get to you, then you will find great difficulty in succeeding in this very competitive business world.

4. Stay Quiet                     

The second you start your new business I know it’s tempting to post a picture on social media and start talking about it but the best thing to do is stay quiet. You’re better off keeping your head down and grinding then worrying about attention. This is what I like to call: “Less talk, more action.”

5. Learn Outside Of School

I hate to be the one to break it to you but school wasn’t made for entrepreneurs. Along with getting good grades in your classes you need to educate yourself and learn outside of the classroom. Today there are a million ways to learn online. Whether it’s taking an online course, watching a YouTube video or simply reading what’s trending in the business world, it’s crucial to expand your knowledge past the common curriculum.
