Developing Persistence

Long term, according to research reported by the U.S. Small Business Administration, about half of all new businesses fail in the first five years, and only one-third survive beyond the ten year mark. Stories abound of entrepreneurs who failed, often multiple times, before they succeeded. With approximately a half-million new businesses opening every year in the United States, there are a certain number of persistent entrepreneurs who are launching a new venture with a new idea despite their previous failures. Those who learn from their prior mistakes and persist are those who have the potential to be successful. In this course we will provide a strong foundation of background knowledge on persistence and summarize strategies for classroom use.
