During one of our recent entrepreneur classes, we had two guest speakers who are fantastic entrepreneurs themselves and were able to create their own businesses. One of them was a Sekolah Ciputra alumni; Felix Son, who created a business selling honey combs. The other guest speaker is one of our own students – Ryan Tanadi – who started an online glasses shop and an online reptile accessory store.
Although both of their businesses are successful, it wasn’t an easy process to get to where they are now business-wise. Felix faced issues from business financial problems to discouragement from his own family members. But this didn’t stop him from developing this business. He continued the business and sought for realistic solutions to his issues one by one. As for Ryan, he also faced multiple problems such as discouragement from his parents to time management between school and his businesses. However, he was able to come up with his own working system to balance out his duties as a student and business owner.
These guest speakers are merely two from countless entrepreneurs that have made their dreams possible by handwork and persistence. We can all be inspired to follow in their footsteps and start our careers despite our age or other factors, as long as we work hard and never give up.
