#254. Entrepreneurship is Alive and Well in Central Illinois!Posted on | The Agurban
Entrepreneurship is Alive and Well in Central Illinois!
Thanks to my brother, Bob Schultz, for this week’s Agurban. Like myself, Bob is very interested in the entrepreneurial efforts of young people in our are. The following was posted on Bob’s blog last week.
There were two great responses. One said, “People are drawn to energy and enthusiasm. There is a distinct advantage to being young and in business.”
Another panelist said, “When I’m making a sales pitch and someone asks me my age, that would normally make me defensive. Instead I turn the question back on them and state, ‘That’s irrelevant to what we are talking about’. Then the older person feels defensive.” Pretty savvy.
Some of the panelists were hoping to retire in 2-5 years!
When asked what they would each consider to be “failure” – one entrepreneur said, “Having to take a job and work for someone else.”
Entrepreneurship is alive and well in Central Illinois. And never more so than in our youth!
