Set yourself a GOAL

GOALSย ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿคœ๐Ÿ’ช

As we move closer to exams it is normal for stress to increase and, in some cases, motivation to decrease. How do we alleviate this?

Over the next 4 weeks you have to have a GOAL to work towards.ย โžก๏ธโžก๏ธโžก๏ธ
Visualise your future. Ask yourself where you want to see yourself in 6 months time. Why are you doing this? For yourself, to get to college, to travel?
Most importantly, what do you need to do in the next 4 weeks to reach this goal? Write down that goal. Make it real.

Work on your strengths and add to them; if your mind focuses on your weaknesses and negatives you will never succeed.

To grow and progress it takes:
70% effort/ hard work
20% attitude
10% ability/ intelligence

Visualise your DREAM, set your GOAL, PLAN your study for the next few weeks, work hard for the last slog and make it REALITY.

๐ŸŒŸย ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸDSA- Building Young Entrepreneurs๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸย ๐ŸŒŸ

We had a wonderful afternoon with the students ofย St. Mochta’s NS, Louth Village. Such a colourful school with the hallways lined in artwork!๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ

We talked everything business and even got round to the important topic of transitioning from primary to secondary school. I think we put their minds at ease on some curiosities and worries.

Thanks to the principal Mr. Martin for inviting us in! He even jumped in for a wee boomerang at the end!ย ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

What a day!
We got to be the Dragons for once!ย ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜‚

These AMAZING 6th class students of St. Francis NS Blackrock pitched their business ideas to us today in the exact format of the Dragons’ Den TV show and OMG did they blow us out of the water.

Company Names:
“Slick Wicks”
“Smooth Dudes”
“Just Incase”
“C- Chains”
“CATS Jam”
“Scrumptious Delights”

Not only were their business ideas so well thought out and innovative, they were able to answer difficult questions about profit margins, unique selling points, marketing and packaging- questions that would stump adults. They did themselves, their parents and their teacher, Ms. McKevitt, so proud!
Unvelievable talent.
Best of luck in the next stage of
The Junior Entrepreneur Programme

It was our pleasure to be invited in to speak on ‘Becoming Entrepreneurs’ to the lovely students from the Bush Post Primary this morning!
Monique and I shared our experience of moving from the classroom to setting up a business; the steps involved, the challenges we faced, the day-to-day running of DSA, and why it was so worth it!๐Ÿ’ช
We really enjoyed being back in a classroom setting!
We wish the students the very best of luck in their exams and future careers!ย ๐Ÿค—โค

5 tips to keep motivated!

The walls of DSA are full of motivational posters.๐Ÿ‘€ You won’t find the same quote doubled anywhere in the building- thanks to Monique ๐Ÿ˜
5 quick motivational #StudyTips:

1. Always keep your end goals in mind.
2. Get into a study routine- make it a habit rather than a dread.
3. Try different study techniques- break topics down into small manageable sections. Use exam papers and study the topics they cover.
4. Study with friends(who won’t distract you)- this will encourage you to work harder and stay on task.
5. Enjoy the weekends and your time off- socialising is just as important. Reward yourself.

And if all of the above fail listen to the Rocky theme tune. ๐Ÿคฃ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ
