The New Youth Entrepreneur: Where To Do Business. Module 6.
Kourilsky, Marilyn; And Others
The New Youth Entrepreneur curriculum is a series of 12 youth-oriented educational modules containing instructional materials, learning activities, and checkup exercises designed to teach students key elements of entrepreneurship. This document is the sixth module, and discusses basic considerations of business administration, such as business location, climatological influences on business, transportation and communication needs, and office and storage facilities issues. The first section examines issues related to the location of the venture, focusing on defining the customer base and providing three sample situations with questions for students. The second section reviews possible effects of climate, weather, and seasons on businesses. Sections four and five provide exercises that address location issues with respect to the need for customers to be able to contact the business and types of transportation needed. Sections six, seven, and eight focus on determining whether the venture will need additional personnel; office, storage, and warehouse space; and telephone service. The final section reviews essential elements for any business, including a mailing address; access to a telephone; and a place for supplies, records, and merchandise. A review exercise is included.
