Students know the world of business is competitive and unpredictable. Having witnessed the worst recession the United States has faced since pre-depression years in the 1940s. Many students come from families who lost everything in the recession and the thought of entering the field is intimidating. These young people come to adulthood skeptical that American business is strong enough to support them or the future generation. Building confidence in the American economy is put upon the shoulders of these young adults and it is understandable they fear another collapse in real estate or mistrust banking.
Bringing back the pride and confidence in students is difficult for educators. The resources available are not always trustworthy and students want a mentor who they know has faced hard times. They want to look to someone who tells the truth and has proof that the words he speaks are from the heart. A man of integrity, strength and knowledge can take away the skepticism young FBLA members use as shields against an unknown future.
