The most meaningful thing about this project it's been able to see the passion the owner has for his business. I learned that a passion that you might have for something can developed into a business. I also learned from this project that there would always be problems in a business, but the better prepared and the more knowledge you have everything would be easier. It is not easy to own a business. It takes a lot of hard work, determination, long hours and money. Once you are on business, never feel that you are on top of the world, keep learning and working hard to be better every day. Giving the best customer service to your clients might not prevent you to fail in a business, but you would always have the satisfaction you gave your best.

This project was very meaningful to me. The reason why is because I had considered becoming an interior designer. My interview with the entrepreneur gave me a great insight of how an interior designer works with clients; from planning to the final results of the design. She gave me advice about choosing a career and starting my own small business. From this interview I learned that it is important to set both short and long term goals from your business. I found this piece of information most help because it relates to the business’s future and the level of success it can reach. After talking to Julie about her career, I realized being and interior designer is very stressful. She is constantly at the worksite to make sure measurements and the materials being used are used correctly. She admitted that it is often hard to balance her personal life with her career because of all the hard labor it requires. As a small business owner, Julie said that it is very important to create a strong network. Some ways she suggested were to get involved in my community and join organizations. By doing this I can build relationships and self-promote my business. As a result of this project, I have a better idea of what it takes to start my own business. I will have to work hard and be dedicated to my business in order for it to be successful. I also have to make my customers very happy, so they return and refer me to others. I am also more knowledgeable about the field I was interested in and still find it interesting.

This project was most meaningful to be because i learned that dedication is important to start a small business. Also, that without education, it is more difficult to be successful. Before this projects, i didnt really know that much about the business world. Having a small business is hard work, especially when facing unsuspected challenges or changes in the economy. I know now that in order to have a business you have to face compitions with all these other businesses. It is always best to go talk to some one or look for some one you know that there in the business to help u out to give you some advice about the business world.

I learn a lot of things during this interview. First time I started this interview project, I was not that interested in this project. Because I was not sure I will be an entrepreneur. However at the end of this project, I was still not sure I will own my business or not but, this interview helps me to think about idea how to set up my goal and future not only a business. I can use many advices that she gave on many problems that I will have later. This is important to listen to others experiences and advices. That is why many people come to mentor to hear the advices and tips. Later, if I will be an entrepreneur I will think about this project and I will use these advices.

The glow and look in his eyes when he was talking about his job was pretty meaningful. It seemed as if he enjoyed his job and wouldn't want to change a thing about it. Also you can see it in him that he is a very hard worker. Another thing that was very meaningful to me about this project was that I got to see what it really takes to start a business and actually thrive in it. It doesn't seem like it would be simple and would take a lot of work, but the way he was explaining everything seems like it completely worth all the hard work.

Through this interview, I learned the importance of web design and staying in school and being educated. I was able to gain perspective on how competitive and difficult business can be. However through hard work and dedication, the payoff is incredibly rewarding. I realized how important a solid business relationship is especially when your own assets are at risk. I didn’t know how useful Skype and Google voice can be and how much money these software can save.  I also realized the profitability in and and what to look out for when selling on these websites. I had also never heard of angel investors and will look into that when I need investors for my startup. I also found quite interesting and will definitely look into that website for more business and financial information.   Another thing she mentioned during the interview that was not included above was the different investment opportunities she went into. One of the things she got into was real estate and started buying up properties when the prices were low. She also attended a lot more auctions from large chain stores such as walmart and bestbuy to bid for pallets of merchandise to resell on ebay. The tips she gave really stuck with me as well. I think too often we try to conform to people around which really brings out the fake, superficial attitude.

Also the tactics to understanding both the strengths and weaknesses of owning a business.   This helped me understand that you have to stay focused on growth and generating wealth. With that your business will most definitely grow. You got to stay focused on your priorities. Always make sure you pick a business that you enjoy, and just follow your dream.

The most meaningful thing about this project to me was the advice given to me on how to start a business. To start a business is easier said than done. Patience is needed in starting a business. Most businesses don't start off successful instantly. It takes time and dedication in making sure your business strives.

The most meaningful thing was entering the mind of a successful entrepenuer.  I thought it was very interesting about what he would've done before he started his business.  He uses alot of experts advice for his business and finances.  I think that asking around and doing your research about the demographics and economy is very helpful in having a successful business.  And loving what you do and turning it into a business is amazing especially when it involves your family.
