Getting Down to Business: What's It All About? Module 1. [Student Guide]. Entrepreneurship Training Components.
This module, first of a series of 36, contains a general overview of small business ownership and what it involves. In the first unit, the student is presented with a case study. This is followed by a definition of small business, kinds of small businesses, life as a small business owner, and personal qualities that small business owners should have. Learning activities are divided into individual activities, discussion questions, and a group activity. Other units discuss planning a small business, setting up a small business, choosing a location, getting money to start, being in charge, organizing the work, buying and keeping track of supplies, setting prices, advertising and selling, keeping financial records (revenues and expenses), making sure you have enough cash, keeping your profits high, and keeping your business successful. Each unit contains a case study, discussion of the unit subject matter, and learning activities. A module summary and quiz complete the document. (A teacher's guide is available for this module.)
