Learning Activity #1
Since this course is an introduction to business and management it is considered a survey course in which students are exposed to many facets of business. Students take the course for several reasons including deciding whether to enter the business world, so it makes sense to see whether you have a business mindset. Students will take a short self-assessment and report out on the findings.
Take the assessment by clicking Business Mindset Self Assessment (http://www.mitchmeyerson.com/BusinessAssessment.pdf)
Once you take the assessment:
- discuss the results in terms of potential career opportunities, current work situation;
- in business, what role are you in or see yourself in?;
- what contributions would you like to make to an organization?
Students want to attempt to use the material from the articles, the textbook, videos and/or from experience to support your reasoning. It is not enough to say you take a position without fully supporting the position. It is difficult at first but once you get the hang of it, it becomes second nature. Also, employers want employees who can present an argument that is well-supported.
Learning Activity #2
Read Chapter 5 The Challenges of Starting a Business and view the video Johnnie Cupcakes:Entrepreneur. You may also want to take the Entrepreneur Self-Test Entrepreneur Self-Test . (http://www.youronestopcenter.com/entrepreneur-test.php)
Then read about Johnny Cupcake There's Something in The Cupcake Mix(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzQH4A6CIbo)
Answer the following questions:
1. What qualities that were demonstrated by Johnnie Cupcake, asked about in the quiz, or mentioned in the textbook, makes you best suited for an entrepreneur, intrapreneur, or a follower in an organization.
Identify the qualities you possess, the role you see yourself in, why you believe this is true and the type of job for which you believe you are best suited. There is no wrong answer and one role is not better than another since everyone is unique. I would expect to see a good mix between the roles.
2. If you were going to start your own business, which form of business ownership would you select and why?
Make sure to post your initial response by Thursday, January 30 and respond to at least two classmates by Sunday, February 2.
