You are required to make an initial post that answers the questions below. PLEASE PROOF your work before posting. Make sure it is professional and represents your best effort. You will not be able to see the posting of your peers until you make your post. After that, please read the posts of your classmates and reply in a meaningful way to at least 2 by Friday. Reply comments that only say “I agree” or “Awesome” will lose points. You are strongly encouraged to look at the rubric grading below to see how your entry and replies will be scored. On Saturday and Sunday, please check the discussion board again and reply to your instructor if your instructor commented on your post and your peers if they asked you any questions.
Please answer the following questions in your initial post:
- Discuss the notion of “freedom” as it pertains to small business ownership in the United States.
- What are the risks and benefits of becoming an entrepreneur as opposed to working for others?
- Looking at either yourself, a family member, or a friend who either have worked for others, been an entrepreneur, or both, discuss which career path you feel most comfortable at this point, i.e. whether you would choose to work for someone else or be an entrepreneur and why.
