FUTURE SMART - Immediate Future

We firmly believe that it would be wise if we became much more forward thinking, pro-active and resourceful in preparation for the challenges and opportunities that the future holds.

BBN implements the following 4-Tier Leadership/Entrepreneurship (LeaderPreneur) approach:
  1. Personal Leadership.
  2. Business Entrepreneurship.
  3. Social (Community) Leadership.
  4. Future Smart LeaderPreneurs at the ‘micro’ - me and my family and at the ‘macro’ - my community and my country levels.
What could I do to develop a plan that would help me and my family survive in the future no matter what the challenges may be? A few examples:
  1. Get out of negative debt.
  2. Learn to budget and stick to it.
  3. Think of ways to earn more income.
  4. Start a food garden.
  5. Find ways to save money.
  6. Do the Entrepreneurship in a HURRY Workshop.
  7. Start a savings plan.
  8. Find a part time job to augment your income.
    Perhaps you could add to this list that we could publish to help others. We welcome your input.
FUTURE SMART – MACRO LEVEL (My Community and My Country)
Developing many more thought leaders - individuals, schools, organisations etc. For example how can my school make a future smart difference in my community and ultimately my country?
  1. Create eco-friendly employment opportunities.
  2. Teach the community members how to grow a food garden.
  3. Start a community recycling project.
  4. Become a BBN - Yes I Can Entrepreneur Youth Trainer.
  5. Teach our youth how to make things with their hands.
  6. Share your knowledge.
  7. If you are a company you may have job shadowing opportunities.
    Perhaps you could add to the list. We welcome your input.
