My Life As An Entrepreneur Despite Being A Student - ElochiBlog

Student Entrepreneur Life

Entrepreneurship has been known to be a business venture organized by someone or group of persons which involves taking some risks for it to make a profit. 

Over the years I have been asking myself this question; 

“Do I have what it takes to be an Entrepreneur” till yet no right answer to this question. 

But now I think working towards your mission and vision and believe to achieve your goals can take you to yourself actualization level.

Today, I can tell you that my journey of becoming a successful entrepreneur is improving significantly despite being a student

Sit back and relax as I will show you how you can become successful as an entrepreneur while in school. 

Being an entrepreneur is more than getting an excellent job or pursuing a career, it is a lifetime affair. 

An entrepreneur is expected to know what he/she wants in life and where to get it before going into business. 

Also, he/she must be goal oriented and ready to accept failure anytime and any day as a learning experience.

Do you think is possible to be an entrepreneur and a student at the same time? Indeed, yes it is possible. 

Now here are some tips you need to have in mind.


As a student, you have to be self-motivated in all you do and try to consider every factor surrounding you. 

All you have to do is to identify a fast selling product or services people always look out for then you can provide them at your fee. 

Once you are motivated and able to do so, then you see yourself generating self-sustaining income, and with this, you minimize the amount of time you seek help from your sponsor.

Increase Your Passion For Skills

Every student has a skill; you just have to find out yours and thereby increase your passion for it. 

Skills could be ICT skills, Coaching skills, Teaching skills, Writing Skills, Communication Skills and so on you have to improve your skills and get yourself an extra income by offering your values. 

Like me now, am a passionate blogger, I don’t usually just blog for money rather the passion I have for it. 

I try to balance my entrepreneurship life with my education thereby choosing a niche that will give me a lot of time which is mostly Tech because it does not require posting every day. 

And by so doing I see my passion increasing for it every day and makes some extra income even while in school.

Get Yourself Organized

As a student entrepreneur, you have to be organized at all time. Every day you wake up very early in the morning just to prepare for school, and at the same time, you are an entrepreneur. 

You need to check out your sales and products both online and offline; you need to advertise and promote your services and products and also need much customers or traffic at the same time to make money. 

This can be stressful trying to meet up with business and education, but once you are well-organized everything is being set up.

I could remember back in the days I wasn’t that organized when it comes to my blog. 

Often I blogged the same morning while trying to prepare for school and it was a bit stressy when I needed to get something online within a few minutes. 

These days its no more possible, I had to plan things and get organized. 

Most of the time I will make up my posts during the weekend, and you will be surprised how good this feels.

Get Yourself Packaged

You need to present yourself in the right way to look like a professional in your field. 

You learn to be creative with your talent and add creativity to your products and services which you offer. 

As a student and being an entrepreneur you need to always package yourself by having your tools ever ready with you. 

You can spare extra cash to get a business card having the details of services you render or products you sell and your contacts also included. 

By so doing, you go about with it and give out to people both in school and outside of school to reach a wider customer base. 

Also, you have to explore your talents for any value or skill you possess and then provide your clients or fellow students every reason to come back for more.

Proper use of Social Media

Don’t use the social media only for socializing rather make it a means of you getting traffic and much customers for your business. 

The internet has been a perfect place for buying and selling of which you can trade from the comfort of your home. 

Always try to market your values which you offer by taking it online, Yes, it will yield more positive results for you, thereby bringing requests from other people you don’t know and even in school. 

Too bad, students misuse the internet and social media nowadays just to show off their pictures and new wears. 

NOPE! That is not right, make good use of your social media accounts and boost your earnings in any services you offer. 

Me as a blogger, I try as much as possible to optimize my social media accounts with my blog posts and brands and such drives much more traffic to my site.

Fortunately, there are so many things I do even in the course of my education as a student and such has not been interfering with my studies. 

However, you can engage in one of this business or any entrepreneur skills by selling products or rendering services once you follow this guideline here and also in this post entirely.

In conclusion, once you try out these tips and have them in mind; believe me, in due time you will see yourself becoming a successful student entrepreneur. 

It is straightforward and possible to do both things at the same time once you are smart, reasonable, self-motivated and business oriented.
