Entrepreneurs at Heart

Throughout their Entrepreneur quest, the heroes have learned valuable life lessons from starting their own businesses. They began the quest filled with confidence, turning their passion into a business idea. They had the  fortitude to take action, transforming their ideas to a product that would serve the needs (or wants) of others. They dared to think differently from others and found ways to resolve conflicts.

The heroes continued to follow their business plans wholeheartedly and unwaveringly, even when it seemed impossible. Even when others said, “No, you can’t,” they boldly said, “Yes, I can!” There was no obstacle or challenge that kept them from moving forward, striving for excellence, while having the humility to learn from their mistakes. Day by day, they deepened their love of learning, using various strategies to solve problems they may encounter. Filled with curiosity, they did not fear any surprises along the way. As they counted down the days to the business fair, despite feelings of anxiety or the  fear of failing, they did not back down from taking risks. These young entrepreneurs stayed positive and excited about the possibilities that await them.

Until the day before the fair, they worked harder while feeling great joy. Every hero felt proud of what they have accomplished, not because they made perfect products to sell or the money they would make from their businesses, but because of all the hard work they put into their businesses and the joy they would give to others. This includes not only the customers, but also their fellow entrepreneurs at the business fair. During a discussion about exploring ways to set up their business fair tables, they were presented with two different businesses, one with an elaborate business fair table presentation and the other with a more simplistic presentation. The aim of the exercise was for the heroes to discover the importance of presentation and business strategies, then to apply them to their own preparations. But the heroes revealed more wisdom than expected when they were asked which business they would buy products from, expecting them to choose the business with a better presentation. Instead, they all agreed to buy from the businesses without the elaborate presentation because they wanted to help the business owners since they probably would not get many customers. This may not be what the world would consider a wise decision from a practical standpoint. Regardless, the heroes chose the narrow path with wisdom beyond their years that could only come from the Lord! Needless to say, the heroes have truly transformed into entrepreneurs at heart, not because they started a business, but because they have the courage and determination to help those in need no matter what it takes.
