People often feel that a business can only be started or run by a graduate who has the proper knowledge about how to run a business by virtue of their degree. But in today’s time, Gen Y is there to prove that they can do everything. Even students can run a business and that too successfully. Here are some of the ways:
I believe scoring marks and making a profit is possible at the same time if you plan properly. All you need to learn is what to prioritise. Maintaining a schedule always helps, and it certainly makes things easier to go with. Of course being a student and an entrepreneur at the same time is not easy at all. But you have to understand that it is not impossible either.
You will always have time for what you want to do, so don’t use it as an excuse to get out of doing something you might actually enjoy. So to get success in both your education and business, you will always have to give your attention to both accordingly.
Plan Your Day, Week, and Year
Planning is a very important part. Imagine you are sleeping and suddenly you remember that you have a meeting in half an hour. You will get ready quickly and rush for it. But eventually, it will not go well, at least not as well as if you would have prepared for it. So you have to plan. If there is any meeting, any work-related activity you will have to plan for it at least a week in advance.
Some people maintain a work calendar. In business sometimes emergency calls come your way, but things that are pre-decided can be added to the calendar so that you can have a fair idea about what all needs to be done in that year. Also, you being a student will have some exams or some other important academic commitments. You can add them to your calendar as well. It will help you to plan accordingly, and this practice will definitely help you achieve success.
Don’t work 24/7
Working 24/7 is not a great idea for a student entrepreneur; in fact, it is not good for any working professional in this world. Every person needs proper rest. Otherwise, after a certain time, the work gets affected. Food and rest will help you to work hard. It will provide you with the energy you need to do both the jobs with equal efficiency. Develop smart working techniques and learn some life hacks. It will help you to balance both the worlds. Be a normal kid sometimes, go out with friends, have fun, watch a movie or two. Do not miss out on the fun part of being a student, as this phase of life will never come back again. Don’t stress yourself too much about work; you should remember that you are following your passion and enjoying your life should also be a very big part of it. Get the best of both worlds.
