We introduce our students to the importance of understanding self-sufficiency through the development of business opportunities. Students develop skills in business planning, budgeting, securing business financing, marketing and other skills necessary for business success. In addition, they are trained in financial literacy and acquire skills in personal finance management. The Burton Morgan Foundation (Hudson, Ohio) has remained one of our primary supporters of the Entrepreneurship Program.
Entrepreneur and Emmanuel Instructor Mr. Cory Amos spoke with captive Middle School students about the importance of calculated risk, streams of income and resilience in the quest for financial freedom. Using his own failures as topic he imparted on our students some of the trials that come with entrepreneurship. Mr. Amos also inspired our learners with evidence of his successes, encouraging them to be resilient, because no success is possible without some failure. It is a part of the process, a part that can bring wisdom, spark ingenuity and ultimately bring greater pride and pleasure to each success.
