You Can Be An Entrepreneur If You Set Your Mind To It: Part 2

In Part 1, we talked about how to get to conceive an idea – but you might wonder…

Taking Your First Steps and Getting Support

Not only is it important to have a great idea, being able to take action and to execute it, is equally, if not more important when launching a startup. When you’re taking your first steps towards starting your own business, keep in mind that the goal of starting something is to show that you’re able to make a profit (no matter how big or small) out of something that you’ve created or to solve a problem that exists. From there, you can either scale up on your existing idea or apply the knowledge that you’ve gained towards better ideas.

‘Bounce Back’ on your academics with Effective Study Strategies

By Jenna Lam, Academic Assistant (Work Study student)

Happy New Year! Welcome back to starting a new semester at UTSC!

The start of a new semester is always exciting – it’s your chance to take everything you’ve learned about studying and bringing it with you into your new courses. Speaking of studying, when was the last time you took a moment to pause your studying – to check-in, evaluate, and re-think your studying strategy? At first, it may feel counter-intuitive… why should I give up any more precious time to re-plan my studying, if I can just continue going full-charge at my textbook? It turns out that studying is more than just memorizing what we need. Studying is a skill like any other – one that can be refined, re-strategized, and re-thought!
