Ask family, friends, community leaders, professors, or your local business owners for help finding a person to interview.
Students will interview an entrepreneur and write a summary of what was learned. Prospective entrepreneurs must have been in business for at least one year. The following types of entrepreneurs/businesses are not allowed for the assignment: Barbers/Hair Stylists, Mary Kay & Avon salespersons, Pampered Chef salespersons, Advocare salespersons, other network marketing salespersons, or corporations (e.g., Target, Best Buy, Belk, etc.). Please search for an independently-owned business. The interview summary should conclude with lessons that you learned from the entrepreneur and your own personal reflection.
Points are deducted if the summary does not satisfy these requirements. Questions to ask entrepreneurs are located in the assignment instructions in Canvas. Students are graded on content, format, writing and grammar, lessons learned, and personal reflections from the interview.
