Blaze a New Trail

Entrepreneurs follow their own dreams and passions as they apply their skills in new and exciting ways. Many entrepreneurs never own their own businesses; instead, they apply entrepreneurial creativity and problem-solving skills within the contexts of existing organizations….these people are sometimes known as “intrapreneurs.”

Although entrepreneurs certainly can reap large financial rewards, they can serve their communities in many ways, including:

  • Devising new products and/or new methods for providing products and services that many people find desirable
  • Providing employment and career advancement opportunities for others
  • Partnering with non-profit organizations to support worthwhile social causes by sharing their business skills and a portion of their income
  • Starting their own non-profit organizations

The study of entrepreneurship can not only prepare you to start your own business; it can also help you identify and capitalize upon opportunities within an established company. JC’s entrepreneurship courses guide you through the process of better understanding yourself: your passions, your skills, and your own attitudes toward taking risks. You’ll learn lessons from many successful entrepreneurs…including tips about traps dead ends you should avoid. You’ll also learn how to thoroughly analyze and present your ideas in ways that are more likely to be positively-received by others…including customers, co-workers, and investors you might want to seek out for financial backing.


Earnings of entrepreneurs vary greatly. Many of the world’s wealthiest people are entrepreneurs, while many other people have lost money on entrepreneurial ventures. Millions of American entrepreneurs enjoy a great deal of financial security and freedom. There is no such thing as an “average entrepreneur.”
