Noosa District State High School Year 11 Social and Community Studies students learnt about the process of starting up a business firsthand from The Youth Tutor Inc's Zakaria Khalid during today's lesson.


Mr Khalid told the students about his career pathway since graduating from school 3 years ago, and some of the challenges he has faced starting up a tutoring business with his friend James Jarrett.


Mr Khalid presented the pitfalls of running a business in a frank and honest manner and reminded the students that anything they set the out to achieve is possible, as long as they are prepared to work hard and make some sacrifices along the way.


"I have no regrets about any of the decisions or jobs I have taken on, as you learn and grow as you move forward in life," Mr Khalid said.


The students were fascinated to hear about the workings of Mr Khalid's business venture, with some considering applying to be a tutor for primary school aged students and others looking to start their own enterprises in the near future.


"Zak was a very inspirational speaker," Year 11 student Reece Cody said.
