Getting Down to Business Webquest


The activities in this WebQuest encouraged you to investigate the process for starting a business. As part of the WebQuest, you were asked to really think about who you are, what you like to do, and what you are good at doing. Were you surprised by any of your answers to these questions? How well did you really know yourself? Did any of your responses make you want to change something about yourself?

You were asked to build a business plan, and you had the opportunity to “practice” running a business through a couple of business games. These games and the business plan process were included to help you understand that running a business is very challenging, but doable. You have to think about all the important steps of starting a business from the beginning if you are going to have success later. Now that you have seen the business plans and advertising and promotion plans of the other groups, how would you change your plans to be more successful? This is the end of the WebQuest, but it does not have to be the end of your business. Keep thinking about your business and, maybe someday, you can start this or another business!
