(Tues. Jul. 12, 2022) Entrepreneurship & Business Leadership - I learned this at Techie Youth today!

On -7/12 I learned what it takes to be an entrepreneur

I learned "Don't be afraid to fail quickly"

I was confused by this statement because failing is one of my biggest fears but if you think about it, it is better to fail in the beginning before becoming fully invested.

I also learned to be a leader, you have to be able to go with the flow of things, you cannot allow things out of your control stress you out

Also, if you can manage your own stress, you can manage people.

Mastering the job interview and getting hired (Negotiations)- I learned this at Techie Youth today!

Today at Techie Youth I learned tips of negotiating your salary and how not to be taken advantage of. Also the need to network goes hand in hand with negotiations.

A little about me- I'm someone who is grateful for every opportunity that is given to me. I would process this as being heard and seen. I never took into consideration the details of an offer, simply because I was grateful to be chosen and accepted. Navigating this world with that mindset has led to debt. Deep financial school debt, credit card debt and car loan debt!

Today I learned to be comfortable with leaving an offer on the table! Never be afraid to walk away. If carry this mentality with me, I would save myself financial. The word "Yes" is also a debt and burden, constantly saying yes to please others is not a good negotiation tactic. You want to be in control!

Beware of Scams - I learned this at Techie Youth today!

I could always remember the feeling of being in desperate need to earn money fast from home during the beginning of the pandemic. By watching Eric's video on how he was at risks of being scammed, allowed me to validate in trusting my gut instincts and question terminology that sounds persuasive or "too good to be true". One thing that stood out to me is if your client or employee is asking for too much money upfront-or in my case sending your employee a check to deposit in their account before working. I always think back and wonder "what would have happened if I deposited that check"

Eric's article states, "If a job is advertised as providing much greater salary than is common for that role then it is likely a scam" This company was willing to send me checks every week to deposit in my account and purchase a few items and then mail it back to them. In return I get to keep the left over money. SCAM ALERT!!! I knew immediately this was a scam but desperate enough to submit my info and move forward. I did not move forward with process because the recruiter was extremely hard to stay in contact with and he was always "BUSY" or on business trips outside the country. So glad Eric pointed that out in his video.
