Today we are going to watch the last two venture plan presentations and then take a look at the land lord tenant act. This legislation is important because you need to know how to live up to your responsibilities and you need to make sure that you don't get taken advantage of. After this we will finish looking at the budget for accommodation expenses.
Today we are going to start looking at budgeting and paychecks. We will watch an episode of "Til Debt do us part" (season 6, episode 13) as an introduction to the importance of budgeting and ensuring that your monthly expenses do not exceed your monthly earnings. We will then look at a sample paycheck and look at what is taken in taxes and what other deductions come off your paycheck.
Today is a catch up day. For those who have not written your unit exam that is the first priority. Then you are working on finalizing your entrepreneur projects. Several of you have yet to submit a portfolio and this will make you ineligible for honors this semester.
Today we are continuing our work with our entrepreneur projects. Today we will look past budgeting and start to investigate what your marketing should look like. Things included today will be determining a target market and looking at how to do market research.
Today we are going to continue work on our Entrepreneur Projects. Today's focus will be on budgeting.
Holly Bilton from CAREERS: the Next Generation is here to present today.
