An entrepreneur should be flexible. Without flexibility it would be hard for the entrepreneur to move forward and progress. Besides that, tenacity and diligence can produce a hardworking society and help an entrepreneur to contribute to the country's development and economy. The matter was raised yesterday afternoon by Yang Berhormat (Retired) Major General Dato Paduka Seri Haji Aminuddin Ihsan bin Pehin Orang Kaya Saiful Mulok Dato Seri Paduka Haji Abidin, the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports during a plenary session of the 3-day 'Youth Business Talk' workshop held at the Youth Centre in the capital.

While saying an entrepreneur should not hesitate to grab any opportunity because time is valuable, Yang Berhormat also warned against making hasty decisions. The Minister added if an opportunity comes along, use discretion and invest wisely. Earlier there was a plenary session titled, 'What's the Difference Between Business and Entrepreneurship?' participated by panellists from both the business and entrepreneurship sectors. Their discussions included the topic, 'A Businessman Would Engage In A Business Similar to Others.'

81 workshop participants received certificates from the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports. The objective of providing basic self-reliance training to the participants was to make them more competitive in the world of entrepreneurship. The workshop was organised by the Youth Centre with the cooperation of the Youth Business Talk Alumni and the Entrepreneurship Bureau of the Transformation Community Club. Among the workshop's interesting aspects was the Mind Challenge titled, 'How To Turn 50 Thousand Dollars Into A Million?' which aimed to transform the participant's mind-set.
