Today I decided to restart everything I know about entrepreneurship. I want to have a real understanding this time of what comes with that life. I only skimmed through some of the content and payed attention to the stuff that only resonated with me. I want to understand everything this time.

So far today I've learned that there are actually more ways than a ton to go about being an entrepreneur. Not that they all apply to me but that it is important for me to have a broader perspective of the business. You have to be serious and dedicated to your pursuit. You should not be entirely money driven. You should understand your pursuit and how well it works for you. Not to throw yourself into an industry you are not fit to work in. You have to also have the passion.

However, what I have retained so far from this program so far since I started it in 2021 is that there are so many ways to make money and this program provides all the advice and tools needed to jump into any one of those jobs. What resonated with me the most is investing and web development. I am grateful to be part of this and to have this information.

I want to first thank Mr. Benari for his dedication and support to the youth through this program.

Today I learned about the reality of running a business. Not my own reality, but the little important things that you should account for when managing a business. Like how to set up a legal business entity in the United States and running an actual establishment. I really enjoy listening to Mr. Benari's stories and advice under the entrepreneurship section. And also seeing the passerby glance back at Mr. Benari's vlog. The things he chooses to talk about are always interesting. How to properly deal with difficult people and employees, how to spot a good work ethic from a bad work ethic, what it really takes to hold up a business, etc. I still replay his videos from time to time to refresh and retain more information I probably missed in my last viewing.

I learned from that section (so far) that there is much to do and be prepared for when setting up and dealing with your own business. Thank you again Mr. Benari for your pursuit in helping us find, discover our fields of interest.
