Mr Zuckerberg is an American programmer and internet entrepreneur and he is the chairman and executive in Facebook.
Mr Zuckerberg is never give up as he had faced a lot problem when developing new social network. Other than that, he also interest to his job very well and he willing to spend time on his job. One of the important issues for success is having a strong ambition and vision in his life and willing to spend time on it.
He is my business hero that I admired because of his attitude with optimistic thinking and can always provide a useful idea in his life. From my role model, I wish to have optimistic thinking when I face problem and good planning of time or other resources in my job or study.

Based on role requirement, career is the no1 priority to get myself satisfaction and a working. In venture, it is not no1 priority because I will do it when I have enough financial and I am able to manage my business independently. Weaknesses that I faced is I had no financial allow and no confident to start my own business. Values, ethics and integrity is my strengths that I am believe on what I am doing will bring outcome in future either a good or bad counter response. With the value of ethics and integrity, I will develop the right product and do the right decision in my business so that everyone will believe and trust on my business.

In the other hand, an entrepreneur must have an optimistic thinking that will always think positive. Thinking optimistic is a very important thinking of every person. Do not always think that you will fail in business since I need to try our best and willing to scarify in order to get our business successful such as sacrifice time and effort to achieve it. An optimistic entrepreneur with good thinking and view will bring me huge motivation to become an entrepreneur.
A conflict that may anticipate between aims and demands of entrepreneurship is different expectation in entrepreneurship. In entrepreneur, we might expect higher salary, luxury life style in entrepreneur life. But if we haven reach our target and we fail in planning a business in entrepreneur, we might fail to get luxury life style since it is not easy to start a business.
An entrepreneurial must have a strong and clearly mind that clearly state mission that need to achieve and how to achieve.

SELF REFLECTION REPORT
From my assessment from part 1 to part 4, I discover my personal story such as interest, strength and weakness. Other than that, I also improve my mind thinking after I done this exercise in few days. First, this assessment allows me to think further about my future, life, parents, job and others. I am clearly understood what my goal is and vision in the whole life. In reflecting, I am clearly understood what is my future job and what I kind of job that I wished to have. Before this, my future job is a kind of sales or marketing that involves a lot of communication technique between each other. Now, I found my interest to be a well know entrepreneurs in the world.
Second, willing to learn is the second important lesson for me as I need to analyze more and learn more critical skills through this assessment. Everyone in the world must contain abilities that willing to learn from mistakes, feedback from others person especially from those who more elder. Eldership has more experience on different perspective of thing or business that we never go through.
Start from now, I would like to improve myself to become an entrepreneur in my future. By become a successful entrepreneur, several of personal target or aims must achieve before I start my venture life. First, I have to get my financial to start a business. Capital is important to start a business, because it is important in every time such as financial to turn over inventory, to invest other financial or to attract investor come over your company.
Second, I have to overcome my all of my weakness such as I have to improve in decision making skill, to live more independently, improve in leadership skill and etc. Decision making is a critical step for everyone whether do the correct solution or wrong solution that will affect our future. In every time when do a decision especially some big decision or serious decision, we need to analyze the possible solution and outcome that will faced, risk that involve in every decision, resource that involve in decision making. After analyze all the possible solution, we need to choose the best solution through our experience to determine which solution is the best way to solve it.
Second weakness that needs to overcome is how to learn independently. To learn more independently, first we need to be confident on what we had do and what we can do. We have to believe in our self that we can make something unique and gain advantages from other person. Thus, manage financial independent is also the way that help us become more independently because I do not rely on my parents to give me pocket money. First, I will pay my own telephone bills, internet bills, and other personal thing. Money that successful keeps and save will bring me incredible motivation and feeling of independent. The most important to become independent is be yourself by not easily influence by others.
After overcome all my weakness, I need to work further to start my entrepreneur life. A great and unique idea is important. To get a good idea to market, we need to analyze what are the market requirement, market desperate, market price, market business, target market and etc. A unique idea can be companies that provide service that will bring benefit to customer or develop new product that would increase performance of life and technology. In the other hand, I'm also need to prepare business resources such as manufacturing time, capital or human resources that is big related to start a business.
In additional, it is important for me to write down my entire business plan and future. We need to do it step by step by list down all idea with details and description such as material needed, cost needed. By using this strategy can allow me to what I have to start and where I stop at. Other that, time and plan schedule also have to list down clearly so we can able to evaluate and use all our time wisely. In the business plan, market analysis is important to know who is target market, location or competitors, sales and etc.
A successful business need long time to generate and we need to start it step by step. At first, we need to start a small business first by not using too much of our capital. We can either do business alone or with partner but the most important is to gain more experience and understand the situation of the market. In the small business, we must try our best to give customer good impression, good behavior so that customer will look for you when you entry to an entrepreneur life.
Customer is the important role in market, there is no sales will exist if no customer is deal with you. By deal business with customer, we also need to understand customer behavior, customer need. We need to notice what customer need and favorite so we able to 'lock customer heart' by take care them concern and provide them a cheerful customer service. Apart from client relationship, other entrepreneur relationship is also important that we need to maintain a regular social meeting others entrepreneur. By this, we can get idea from other entrepreneur that will also improve our mind thinking.
I really hope that I am able to start entrepreneur life within 35 years so that I can enjoy life to become an entrepreneur to improve my future life. I can improve my future life because I am able to get what I want it to be and how the business to be. My own idea is belong to me and not others. I won't worry I will getting fired if my idea is not accepted by other people that high position than me.
In additional, I would like to lead people how to do and assign task to my employee. So, being an entrepreneur can bring me satisfaction since I allow to do whatever I want to do or wish to have and no need under control by others. For employee, he need to follow exactly the instruction or procedure that fixed by employer even he have his own idea to complete a task. While for an entrepreneur, allow to create own procedure step to complete a task and it will provide me a lot of satisfaction. It is a challenging job for me since many decision making, risk are involve in entrepreneur life.
We feel stress when we working as an employee because I need to fight my target or have to do what employee require everyday to prevent fired by employer. In others word, every employee in same company like fighting each other to get more sales or business to prevent fired. This is stress and uncomfortable working environment for me and it will affect my working performance since it is no team work in project or good communication method between employees in a same company. To being an entrepreneur, it will make me escape from stress of corporate life.
Can have a flexible working time or schedule is also one of the reason for me to become an entrepreneur. Life of become an entrepreneur can be flexible since I am allow to evaluate business operating hours, timing life cycle and others by myself. In the other hand, social networking is important issue when being an entrepreneur because there is more chance to interact with different people and increase chance of interact with customer. Entrepreneurs have the opportunity to meet new people in different country or different business area.
Become a successful entrepreneur is my dreams since I am young. Now, I can make my dream become true after I done this assessment. I am able to make dreams become reality and not disappointed my family. My dream is to be a successful entrepreneur that will have a growth business. My expected business is successfully developing a new product to market that useful to everyone.
