What's great about this is that it is definitely not restricted to media but can take any shape or form. For example, we are taking matters into our own hands and creating our own online stores and boutiques through the likes of social media and websites such as Etsy and Shopify - allowing us to turn our hobbies and skills into something more. I can give a couple of examples of people I know who have decided to start up their own small businesses, alongside their studies, which incorporates what they love and offers a small way to make extra money. One, having set up her own jewelry collection another, her own nail art service, while another, her own cupcake business. Again, these are small examples but are definitely embracing the entrepreneurial spirit of this Beta Generation. That is, not waiting around for someone to offer the job, but to create it ourselves.
