I considered shutting down this blog but have more updates after a period of discouragement. After investigating many side hustle as business ideas, I felt discouraged. Instead I worked on implementing a couple of insights from Leadership and Organizational Change class from school. First has to do with expanding and strengthening my personal network and second is in strengthening a promotional mindset in myself.
I also took the opportunity to join a club called Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition. It’s goal is to promote this as a career path for MBA graduates. The idea is to run distressed or bankrupt companies that you either buy or are purchased by a small group of investors. This is appealing to me because it has some of the positive aspects of a franchise but with more freedom and variety of choices.
With the MBA degree and my network in place, taking control and turning around a business is an appealing idea post-graduation. It also gives me focus in my studies and networking.
