Students are guided through steps to help them research a business idea, identify resources to start their business, and create a "Business Idea" brochure using Microsoft Publisher that presents the information they have gathered.
You are a consumer because you buy goods and services, for example you buy shoes, clothing, food, cell phones, and cell phone services.
Now, imagine yourself as a business owner selling goods and/or services to others. You have interests, talents, and skills that someone will pay money to use. Or, perhaps you have a great design idea for a new or enhanced product or clothing line. Perhaps you have a design idea for cars of the future.
Your "Business Idea" is limitless - there are no bad ideas!
