Students understand that the world of business is competitive and unpredictable. Many have witnessed the worst recession the United States has faced since the pre-Depression years of the 1940s. Some come from families who lost everything during the recession, and the prospect of entering the business world can be intimidating. These young adults may harbor doubts about the strength of the American economy to support them and future generations. Building confidence in the American economy now rests on the shoulders of these young adults, who understandably fear another real estate collapse or banking crisis.
Instilling pride and confidence back into students is a challenge for educators. Trustworthy resources are not always readily available, and students seek mentors who have faced tough times themselves. They want someone who speaks the truth and can back it up with genuine experience. A person of integrity, strength, and knowledge can help dispel the skepticism that young FBLA members use as shields against an uncertain future.
