Sawyer Howitt – Entrepreneur And Project Manager
Technology has severely advanced in recent years which has placed a whole new light on entrepreneurs. Now more than ever, more people have the opportunity to live out their dreams and become a small business owner.
Sawyer Howitt, a young entrepreneur with many years of experience under his belt points out the difference between a true entrepreneur and someone who thinks they’re an entrepreneur. Howitt is only 17 years old and a senior in Lincoln high school. He currently works for a company called The Meriwether Group where he serves as the project manager.
An entrepreneur is someone who wakes up every morning excited to start working because they’re motivated by a passion that lies deep within their soul. It’s not always about making money. It’s about serving a purpose to better yourself and the business you’re pursuing. On the other side of the spectrum, you will find people that are pursuing business models that reflect what other people may want or think will be successful as opposed to what their passions are. Although money is at issue, many rely solely on ways to make the most money or how they can make it faster. If you are confident in your hobbies and obsessions on a deeper level than you already know problems can become common. Howitt works to set an example every day for those looking to start their own passionate business. His hopes are that people will look to further their success in a positive way so they can continue to pursue their passion without focusing on money, but focusing on all aspects of how they can make their business better as a whole.
