Lizzie asks…

What jobs can I get with a Bachelor’s in Entrepreneurship/Small Business Management degree?

I have been out of college for about two years now and have worked a lot of random jobs like receptionist, gym member specialist, personal home cook, etc… -the kinds of jobs I don’t need a degree for. I graduated with a degree that is probably more geared toward consulting than a skill related field. What other kinds of jobs should I apply for?

My main passions are health, nutrition, psychology and public health.

barry0912 answers:

I find it ironic that you got a four-year degree in entrepreneurship/business management and didn’t mention anything concerning starting and running your own business. The brainwashing of us Americans into the template of automatically looking for jobs working for someone else is very strong. Unless, of course, you’ve already considered this and have no interest in this possibility.

As a business owner, you have total control of what you do and don’t do and your rewards when/if successful are virtually unlimited. And many businesses don’t require a lot of money to start. Plus it’s possible to get money in other ways other than out of your own pockets to start your business.

If you are interested, I would consider books written by Tyler G. Hicks. He has been writing books on this subject for many years (I recently got one with a copyright of 1966) and they are very good, IMHO. The only thing out of date seems to be the dollar examples he uses based on all the inflation over the years. He is still in business today. A number of people ding his books in reviews because he doesn’t take you through the whole process step by step and sometimes plugs his other materials, but I like him. I can virtually guarantee you’ll learn from his books. A true entrepreneur doesn’t need hand-holding. Just info, guidance, encouragement and options. I recently ordered a book of his entitled, “How to Build a Second Income Fortune in Your Spare Time” with a copyright of 1965, that I would very highly recommend to you in spite of its age. I’m only up to page 75 so far but it’s very, very good. I’m very glad I bought it.

I would suggest you go to Amazon.com or some other used book sellers on the internet and see if any of his books interest you and possibly get some ideas going in your head in the fields you are most interested in.

In school did you take coursework in business formation, business law, marketing and advertising? There are many good books on these subjects and I would use the reviews on Amazon.com to find the best ones to help you. Other business books on the subjects of interest and need to you to help you be super successful should also be considered. To look for good books on legal issues and the mechanics, I’d consider Nolo.com as an initial place to look. Their books are most often high quality, although some are of course better than others.

I am presently working on starting a nonprofit. It’s pretty hard to get fired when you’re the owner of the company. Plus, you can work at any job within your company as you desire. And switch around whenever you like. Or stay small and do it all. Or start off small and expand as you need or desire to. You can also start your business part-time while working a regular job until you start making way more money in your own business. Plus you can have more than one small business going at the same time if you’re so inclined.

My opinion is it’s pretty hard to beat the advantages and potential of the job of business owner. No matter what you do, it will build on your degree and experience in your field. That’s my suggestion.

Good luck, Lala. 🙂

Your Questions About Internet Marketing News

Susan asks…

how do you go about finding investors for a completely internet based business?

Does anyone know where do you go to find investors to see if they might be interested in investing in your business? I’m planning to start up a new internet business which I think is pretty unique but I’m not sure how to find investors who maybe could help with marketing it and getting it known.

barry0912 answers:

Marketing and funding are completely different issues.

If you need additional funding to get your idea developed, you have a long road ahead of you. This would involve creating a business plan and a basic website (which you can do yourself), and getting in touch with another organization that can help you track down angel investors who may be interested in your deal. This is difficult because without a “prototype” funding companies will take up your time looking at your deal, but will almost never invest. Some sneaky funding companies already have “portfolio” companies they’ve invested in, and they’re looking to you for a free education and trade secrets they can apply to their own business. This is not fair, but there is hardly anything you can do about it, since it is you that needs the funding and it is almost impossible to get a potential funder to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

If, on the other hand, you’ve already done a substantial amount of work on the product and/or website so you can begin promoting it, there are a ton of ways to get your website “noticed”. Internet marketing techniques include blogs, news/press release submission to article engines, Google Adwords, Pay-Per-Click, email marketing, co-registration including paid solo ads, Squidoo, MySpace, search engine optimization (SEO), search engine URL submission, traffic engines, safelists, white papers, free ebooks with embedded promotional info, newsletters, etc.

Charles asks…

What are my chances of getting a job in the marketing industry after getting my assosiactes degree?

I want to know how easy/hard it is to obtain a career in the marketing/advertising industry.

barry0912 answers:

Right now, in this economy, you would be lucky to get an entry level position in a low level company.

Actually, you would be lucky to get any job!!! And that is no joke!!!

However, you would probably be able to get a position as a telemarketer, but, you really don’t need an associates degree for this job. The fact that you have or will soon get your associates degree does put you in an advantage over those who do not. An employer will tend to give a job to the candidate with the highest level of education, all other factors being equal.

If you are interested in finding out more about “network marketing”, you can find out alot of information online. One nice thing about network marketing is that you can have a successful career with an associates degree, or you can have a successful career with no degree at all. You would have a distinct advantage over the non-degreed marketer, as you have a lot more knowledge at your fingertips. You will most likely have better writing and speaking skills than someone with just a HS diploma, a GED or equivilancy diploma, or no dipolma at all.

The difference between a network marketer and a telemarketer is that you won’t have to annoy people at dinner time! As a matter of fact, you won’t have to annoy anyone at anytime, if you do network marketing right!

Is Network Marketing a Get Rich Quick Scheme??? Definately not, and anyone who tells you so is not being honest with you.
So, if continuing you education is not an option at this time, then send out your resume. If you have any type of experiance, a lot of employers will also take that into consideration.

If you are interested in finding out how to break into the network marketing arena, please check out my website, www.top-network-marketing-companies.org

I am not going to SELL you on my NWM or MLM company, don’t worry about that. What my website is about is helping you to find the “right” network marketing opportunity for “you” and how to develop that opportinity into a successful career. One requirement is access to a computer with high speed internet access. The good news is that most school libraries give you unlimited access at the library!!!

Hope this helps! Good luck in your search! Hope to hear from you!

Helen asks…

What can you do with a degree in graphic design?

What can you do with a degree in graphic design?

barry0912 answers:

All of the above are true. You have a huge range of career opportunities! Website design is HOT, then there is print design (ad firms, magazines, marketing firms, hospitals — yup, they need their annual reports and marketing work designed, post-secondary schools — with the right degree, and I could go on and on . . . ) You need a specialized degree in gaming design (If you don’t have a degree yet, check out SCAD — Savannah College of Art and Design.)

Everything you get in the mail, all the ads and layout you see in magazines and books . . . All the greeting cards you get in the mail . . . All the internet pages . . . They needed to be designed by someone — usually with a graphic design background.

And don’t forget freelance. There are a number of websites (I used Elance.com) that will hook you up with potential clients.

Does it pay well? Depends on your clients and how much experience you have, and how quickly and thoroughly you can get the job done. There are some jobs that I do, and only get paid about $12.00 an hour because it wasn’t as “easy” as I thought it would be. Some jobs I do, I get paid $100.00 per hour! More likely, I average about $25.00 to $45.00 an hour freelance.

I tend to agree with one of the past answerers — you should get another expertise or even a higher degree (Master’s). It’s not only helpful to YOU, it looks great on a resume. Photography, Illustration, etc. Goes well with design. I have my Master’s in Media Studies, which has brought me much success in getting both freelance and full-time work.

Much success to you!! It’s a great field, ever expanding, and you can WORK FROM HOME if you’re lucky and find the right job!
