Do You Have What it Takes to Start Your Own Business? I recently conducted a workshop at the largest Job Fair in Arkansas. During the seminar, I asked how many had ever considered starting any kind of a business. Almost half raised their hands. Whether you are unemployed or underemployed, you may have considered doing the same. Creating a job by starting your own business is a wonderful opportunity and should at least be explored by everyone. Before you jump into what kind of business to start, you must first determine if you are a fit for creating and managing any kind of business. Do you have what it takes to do something on your own? We will be discussing a number of traits that have been proven to indicate if you are likely to become successful in your own business. We will also be discussing the recent significant move by the Federal Reserve and its potential impact on the creation of more jobs. Finally, I will share the fascinating results of a study on America’s most generous cities and states. As you consider your employment opportunities, how does where you currently live, or where you want to live, stack up in terms of giving back to their community?
