Career Video on Entrepreneurship
In a video, Gayatri Dewan has talked about various aspects of a Career in Entrepreneurship. Gayatri Dewan started by explaining Entrepreneurship as: "Entrepreneurship is the process of designing, launching and running a new business, which is often initially a small business. Entrepreneurship has been described as the "capacity and willingness to develop, organize and manage a business venture along with any of its risks in order to make a profit"." The video gave me so much food for thought.

I found the video unique because it talked about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in Entrepreneurship and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into Entrepreneurship.

Sills and success goes hand in hand. One needs to get a hold of essential skills.
Gayatri Dewan then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Entrepreneurship:

  • Client Handling

Positives of any Career motivate one to work hard for the same.
Gayatri Dewan believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Entrepreneurship:

After a discussion on Positives, Challenges complete the caricature of a Career.
And, Gayatri Dewan believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Entrepreneurship:
