One of the many sides of the AYF is entrepreneurship. But what is entrepreneurship? What does it take to start a business?
Freddy, an entrepreneur, designer and entertainer from Singapore who started his own clothing brand at 16 and from there continued to aim for the top, is giving us his opinion regarding entrepreneurship.
In my opinion, two elements are key to start a business and become a successful entrepreneur: passion and action. You need to treat passion towards what you want to do as the most basic step. Then, once you have a clear goal to achieve, just do it! You should not worry about things like money or what you cannot do, just keep doing and do not find excuses to avoid achieving what you can. Despite the obstacles, you should keep pushing for you dreams! Finally, talk to people about your goals so that you can get help and feedback.
These points constitute the basis of any entrepreneur. However, if I had to think about being an entrepreneur within the frame of AYF I would like to add one more thing: the bigger picture matters the most. By that I mean that for your projectyou really need to adjust what you want to do with what the local community needs. If you are passionate about it then act quickly, communicate with your team, be decisive and make it happen!
