Change Careers by Starting a Small Business

Start a Small Business Image

Although many people may be unhappy with their current career path, few know how to veer into another sector. However, one college in Texas is helping people discover a career that they love in creating their own business.

Thinking of entrepreneurship as a career change is becoming more popular and Lee College and the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in Texas have partnered up to show people how to develop a new business.

Lee College is now offering a Business Management Degree and Entrepreneurship Certificate to those who want to take job opportunities into their own hands.

Plenty of people are choosing to start their own business in the slowly recovering economy as it offers them the opportunity to truly care and be invested in their career path. There are many benefits in creating a business and a career path ranging from increased flexibility and control, along with becoming more active in the community.

“This generation is not at all afraid to take risk, particularly on themselves,” said Tracie Hervey, who works at the college. “They have a lot of great ideas and are not afraid to showcase them for others. One also finds that in the absence of employer loyalty and lifetime employment, people are leveraging their ideas in hopes of taking control of their destiny.”

According to the Small Business Association, as of 2005 small businesses represent 99.7% of businesses in the U.S. and employ more than 55 million people.ADNFCR-1502-ID-19920400-ADNFCR
