I have been working with some students on business plans over the past few and it became clear that ‘class work’ often gets in the way. Many of the students put in enormous amounts of time over the Thanksgiving break and it became obvious that making use of school vacation’s is crucial for students considering launching a business.
While many student entrepreneurs sometimes psychologically check out of their coursework, there is work that must be completed, deadlines to meet, and peers to support, often on group projects.
As the first semester comes to an end, we implore student entrepreneurs to start thinking ahead to your upcoming winter break. Depending on the campus, students will have between 3 and 6 weeks w/out coursework obligations.
The academic calendar often provides multiple chunks of ‘free time’ for student entrepreneurs to put into their ventures. Take advantage of this asset of the entrepreneurial frontier in America: its system of higher education.
