You need to know which industry you plan to work in. Next work in that industry to gain practical experience. Take entrepreneurship classes as well as marketing, management and finance. Soak up as much as you can from any source and anyone that will let you pick their brain. Be prepared to work hard and long hours. You are the person in charge and will be responsible for all aspects of the business. If there is somewhere you are lacking in experience, be sure to hire someone who does. Good luck!

Ara’s Answer

What is your passion? What do you do well? What do you do that brings you joy? Be true to yourself and think about what things you do that you do well, or the things you do that bring you happiness. Typically, what you enjoy doing you do well, and what you do well will make you happy. You have God-given gifts and talents. Are you creative? Do you like making things? Are you good with people? At a high-level think about the attributes you have that make you, you. While there are many lists out there that identify the top entrepreneurial jobs or jobs of the future, don't force yourself into something that you may not well or that you may not enjoy. Your success will come from your core skills and talents, which you can enhance through education, real-world work experience, and finding mentors and teachers to help you progress. An entrepreneur paves his or her own path by going after a passion inside of them. Take some time to think about and inventory the list of great things about you - your strengths, things you enjoy, things you are good at. From there, look at businesses and careers that align to your personal inventory. Then you may consider schools or training that provide development or support, or even find a job in the industry that you are looking to enter and gain valuable first-hand experience of the industry, company or job position.
