At just 17 years old, Sawyer Howitt is already making quite the large splash in the ocean that is entrepreneurial commerce.
Sawyer Howitt is one of the rare examples of truly noble and selfless individuals. He is known for freely giving out tips and advice to other burgeoning young entrepreneurs, giving them a leg up with the knowledge he has gained through his own success.
Being born in the year that makes him a ‘Millennial’ has made it a bit rough for him as the stereotype of Millenial laziness is well propagated though based on no fact. It is very easy for young entrepreneurs to be intimidated by the bigger players in the financial world, he is combating this by showing the older professionals that him as well as other Millennials are more than capable of handling the challenges ahead of them.
Many of the young entrepreneurs of today’s age feel that their youth and inexperience makes it a bad move to start a business and this is somewhat true but there comes a point where nothing will be gained by waiting. Sawyer’s advice is to start working your passion right away, whether you need to find an internship or take some online courses to educate yourself.
Being a young entrepreneur like Sawyer Howitt, you may lack the workplace experience of the older age groups but what is lacking in experience is almost always made up for with energy and excitement to learn something new. Younger people also have a financial advantage over the older generation as they have no families to support and no overhanging mortgages, giving them a greater level of financial freedom.
According to medium.com, self-confidence is key as many people will easily and readily dismiss you based on your lack of experience and seeming lack of confidence in your own abilities. As a young entrepreneur, you are your own self-promoter. One way to practice boosting self confidence is to take ownership for both the things that you do that are successful as well as learning from the mistakes from the endeavors that are not successful.
