Yeah! School’s out, well for a while at least! Which means plenty of opportunity to check out that ‘13 Reasons Why’ show on Netflix that everyone’s been talking about… or challenge your mates to a few rounds of FIFA, right?
Not entirely, no! While chill time is important, especially if you’ve been working really hard at school and need a breather to wind down, there are also a number of other ways in which to put your holiday time to really good use. Why not focus on personal growth, skill development and building on that already-impressive entrepreneurial spirit at the Teen Boss event this year?
The Teen Boss event will take place over a period of 3 days, between the 20th and 22nd of July 2017, at The River Club in Cape Town.
The three day programme has been designed to help you develop your problem-solving skills and creativity, both essential when it comes to succeeding as a young entrepreneur!
The programme takes each participant and their team on a journey from a defined initial problem through to a business proposal presentation. The programme is similar to the Start-up Weekends that have run around the world, but with an emphasis on Teenagers and local community problems.
If you think that becoming an entrepreneur is only truly possible once you have left school, think again! There are countless impressive teen bosses, who started out with visions and goals just like yours, throughout the country and all over the world.
Take Aaron VanBuren (age 16), partner of pastry company Tannie’s Tastries, for example. He is a big believer in karma and attributes much of his success over the years to helping other young entrepreneurs make a start. Or Morgan Marant (age 17), founder of Uniquely Me, who advises prospective teen bosses to take one achievable step at a time.
The question is – could you be South Africa’s next inspirational teen boss?
We think so, but there’s only one way to find out! Book your place at the Teen Boss event today and get your personal entrepreneurial journey off to a solid start. Call 021 795 0566 or send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
