Celine pointed out various aspects about being a student entrepreneur in her post titled the anatomy of the student entrepreneur. One quote in her post that stuck out in my mind was "If being a professional businessman isn’t daunting enough, how much harder is it for student entrepreneurs?" Personally, I look at being a student entrepreneur in a very different light. Although I am aware of how difficult it is to find time to work on your business amidst midterms, homework, and studying, I think that being a student entrepreneur is a lot easier than being a professional entrepreneur for several reasons. 1. No Pressure Students have no pressure in their entrepreneurial ventures while still in school. Generally speaking, students don’t need to make money through entrepreneurial businesses because their living expenses can be covered by their summer job earnings and student loans. This greatly contrasts professional entrepreneurs. Professional entrepreneurs have real expenses that students have. These include most notably Insurance, rent/mortgage, and student loans. 2. Free Summers Simple, yet the second most important aspect of being a professional entrepreneur. Summers give student entrepreneurs time to devote to their business. Starting in a business doesn’t mean you can’t have a job as well. Personally, I both work a full time job in the summer and develop my online businesses. It does get fairly busy sometimes, but it’s very manageable because there is no pressure. Having flexible summers is something many people don’t have, and it should be taken advantage of. 3. Easily Accessible Market Being a student at a university gives students a huge market that is easy to target, if he chooses to do so. This huge, ‘built in’ market is the student population at a university. Being a student at the nation’s second largest university, this is huge advantage students have. Sure, professional entrepreneurs can target college campuses and students, but in doing so, they do not have the marketing resources that students have. Whether posting fliers in dorms, or spreading viral Facebook events/Groups, students naturally have a very easily accessible market that is begging to be exploited.
