Reasons Skateboarders and Scooters Make Great Entrepreneurs

»Posted by on Apr 8, 2020 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Skateboarders and scooters are seen as rebels by some of their parents, friends, and even by the whole society. They are those teens who wear shabby clothes, tattooed skin, and colored on the streets, doing some tricks and stunts with their friends – just enjoying every moment they have with their boards. Some teens do this to escape from the stressors at home or school, while others do this as an expression of their passion for freedom and art. Although modern times do not set limitations to whom the skateboard and scooters equipment are made, as there is an electric scooter for adults that can be seen in the market anywhere, still the association of this equipment is linked to teenagers and kids. 

But according to Joseph Steimle, a TEDx speaker, and an author of Chief Marketing Officers at Work, these teenagers can be entrepreneurs in the making if we just look closer. There are a lot of characteristics that these teenagers have that are similar to what you can see in a good entrepreneur. The following are three of the topmost qualities that you can find similarities between these kids and god entrepreneurs.  

1.Being creative 

Skateboarding and scootering always do evolve. Just the past few years ago, I thought I already had seen some all the complete tricks and stunts that scooters and skateboarders could demonstrate, but you now, you can still see some new tricks and stunts being done by the tees on the street. These kids always find avenues to do new tricks that are never seen before by many eyes.  

These children can see the physical environment as a piece of their art, the canvass to their paint. They have a keen eye to the details they see – the bump on the road, the tree roots that have grown on the sidewalks, and other petty details that most of the people will not recognize. Creativity is also needed by entrepreneurs in the field. As they do their business, they need to think new and innovate to have an edge against their competitors. They need to have new ideas every day to make the business growing. 

2.Individualism and responsibility to one’s own choice 

In doing the activity, the players demonstrate their tricks and stunts on their own, and when they fail, they cannot blame anyone but themselves, as they are responsible for their own actions. This also provides them the training to be more responsible for their actions, and be able to connect and socialize with others to obtain success – which is also helpful in the business industry. 

3. Being rebellious. 

Skaters are portrayed in the movies as some ones who keep on doing what they like despite being reprimanded by some of their family and peers. They are hard-willed individuals who do not take negative criticisms personally that hinder growth in doing what they are passionate about.  

Entrepreneurs are rebellious in some ways too. Being a rebel serves them well in times of failure. They do what people are afraid to do and they are willing to accept the consequences, because they know that the only way to innovate is being unconventional, which takes a bit of a rebellious attitude.
