Be The "E" Entrepreneurship 4-H project activity guide is designed to give
you the knowledge, skills and mindsets to meet the challenges of work and community

The 4-H Entrepreneurship project manual contains activities for nine years.
The guide is broken into three sections and each section covers three years of
Love It (Section 1) introduces you to the world of entrepreneurship –
what it is, who has done it, how some famous products got started, and how to find
and make business opportunities.
In Plan It (Section 2), you will participate in planning experiences to
gain the skills needed to be a successful entrepreneur. You’ll learn about types
of businesses, products and pricing, marketing, partnerships, and agreements and
Do It (Section 3) will encourage you to go through the process of researching
and creating a business plan and starting a business. You will do market surveys;
prepare budget forecasts; learn exit strategies; understand business ethics; project
and control cash flows; learn the importance of satisfying the customer and implement
your business plan.
If a member completes the 9 years of project activities, they can work with their county Extension professionals to determine their learning opportunities for their remaining 4-H years.
