As advocates of entrepreneurship, Manchester-based Havoc has highlighted what school doesn’t teach entrepreneurs.
Education doesn’t seem to be keeping up to date with the changes that are being seen in the workplace. Self-employment today is at its highest level since records began, with 15% of the UK’s workforce being self-employed (4.6 million people). This is up from 13% in 2008. Schools are preparing young people to become employees, rather than employers and are failing to prepare individuals for a future of entrepreneurship.

Sales and marketing firm, Havoc, report nine lessons about entrepreneurship that are not taught in schools:
- To have an unbeatable will to succeed - Entrepreneurs need the right mind-set to try, try and try again.
- When aiming big, it’s ok to fail - At school, failing is seen as a bad thing. In the world of entrepreneurship, failing is a learning opportunity and inevitable on the road to success.
- Always question things - Entrepreneurs always look to examine other businesses and to gain insights that can be used for their own.
- Be creative and a good people manager - To succeed as an entrepreneur an individual needs to be innovative. Also, people are the best asset a company has, so people skills are imperative.
- Learn about money and cash flow - This is not just important in businesses, but also in a person’s personal life.
- How to work for yourself - This involves time management skills and being able to focus on strength while hiring to build on areas of weakness.
- Giving up isn’t an option - Have enough confidence to keep going at all costs.
- Be happy - To use passion and purpose as motivators rather than power, money or fame.
- It’s who you know not what you know - Learn networking skills because they are essential to building a business.
