The most meaningful thing about this project was the experience of talking to someone with so much experience. I learned a lot of things one of them being what to look for in the market to be successful. Also that there much more to businesses than just an idea. I learned that you need to put a lot of time and effort to succeed. Sometimes you need to scarify stuff for the best of your company. You have to show that you want it more than anyone else. You have to be willing to do things that other people wont to thrive.  After interviewing my entrepreneur I really think I am going to start my own business. This gave me the push and confidences to do it on my own. I’m going to work hard and look at all the different options in every market to see which is most successful and which have a future. I’m going to apply the resources he gave me and the also the advice. He told me to stay in school gain knowledge and to come out strong. This project really did get me on the right tract.

The most meaningful about this project is the research of how to start my own business. Interviewing an existing company and finding out all the different advantages and disadvantages maintaining their company gave me an clearer idea on how to approach a new trend.

I believe this project was very helpful and meaningful as a student. It gave me more hands on with small business and provided me with more feedback. It gave me a brighter understanding on what it takes to be a entrepreneur and what step I should consider if want to be successful. I also seen how difficult it may be to establish yourself and it takes time in order to reach your professional goals. I notice how your passion can become a carrer or even a hobby and can be a startup business. Another thing I took into consideration was being well organized as a company with a foundation to build on.  Overall I feel this project was productive and gives a lot of inside look of how a business runs and performs.

This project was very informative. I was able to get a feel for what is important in today’s economy in order to have a successful business. For example, the first thing he told me was that customer service is really important in this economy because it will help you keep and get new customers. I also got insight into how important income and outflow of the businesses cash is. My entrepreneur told me that when times are tough you need to watch the cash flow very carefully and make sure it is not going into things that are absolutely needed. Another thing I learned was that it is important to get feedback from different sources such as customers and vendors and corporate if you own a franchise. I think it is important to get feedback and to keep up with the trends of your specific business. My idea of doing something that you love and to pursue something that you are passionate about has been reinforced. I believe that your chances of success in life and in business are higher when you have passion for what you are doing. I also found out that it is important to change how you do business when the finances become tight and you need to insure payment, such as limiting the amount of credit given or having to make a deposit for all projects ordered.  This project has given me an idea of what is important in keeping a business afloat in tough economic times. I do wish that I could have gotten more information about the actual start-up of the business. The entire interview reinforced a lot of the key points I have learned from my small business management class, I felt like a lot of what the entrepreneur had to say was things I already knew or that were common sense to me in running a business so nothing he said was really a surprise or insightful. The most interesting aspect then that I learned was that what I have been learning in

I really have to think about where I am going to open my business. My work environment should be as clean as possible for the customer’s satisfaction. I have to keep myself informed either by the web or local newspaper. Advertisement will keep you on the competitive edge and help you strive. I should also be aware of what I am going to get myself into whether I succeed or not. I also have to keep my mindset, and be 10% better than the competition next door. I should also get as much ground covered right now before it is too late or I have to go back and get proper credentials.  I must be open minded and keep collecting tips. To strive in a business I should also be well equipped not only by the tools but by skills. Hand and eye coordination is a key role in this type of business. Having a partner I can trust will motivate me to motivate him to keep going. I should also establish good credit with banks in order to have a good score. Keeping up with new customer trends in the market will help you cope and reel in the customers. Having something for the whole family such as entertainment may expand the variety of customers. Building a strong resume is also important to help you stand out from the rest. I believe customer support is the most important thing for my business.

The most meaningful part of the project to me was being able to interview a small business owner. It helped me to realize that things arent always easy to start and you have to make your business the way you want it. You also cant expect to start from the top you have to work from the bottom which makes you a stronger person because now you know everything in the business first hand and you can help someone else who is having problems with their positions. It is always so acomplishing when you can help somone be better at something because you were good at it. What was also meaningful about this project was that i realized its going to be harder to start a business than i first believed it would be.  Some other things that were meaningful about this project was when i found out about being organized and a multitasker. I believe that if I put my self on track I can do it, even though it will be tough for me. I have to remember to be at the top I need to start at the bottom. If i expect to start right at the top then i will get frusterated when i cannot start there and I wont want to do it.

The most meaningful to me throughout this project is start up a business is not always easy as it seen.  It can contain a lot of work and study before you ahead ago and decide to become an entrepreneur.  Once you want to start a business you have to be preparing to lose the money in the first one or two year. This experience was very fun and thoughtful then I expecting.  Starting a business includes a lot challenges and preparations.  As an entrepreneur you have to get to know you business very well before you start. Always be prepared and have a lot of capitals.     I think the most meaningful to me about this project was experience and communicate with an entrepreneur.  Sharing experience through the interview gives me a picture of someone else life and aspire me become a entrepreneur more in the future.

In this project I got to interview an entrepreneur, which really inspired me. Letting me see how it really is to own your own business and the benefits that come with it. It showed me what I want and how I can reach that goal. This interview made me realize that there is a lot of opportunity in business and if you know it well enough you can develop and run your own business. Owning my own business is a goal of mine and can benefit me career wise. Up until I started taking business I never thought it’ll be a realistic one. However putting this interview together helped me get a grasp on what I need to do and be capable of running things on my own. This let me see that my goal is reachable and can be done with dedication, hard work, required skill and authenticity. Altogether I learned a lot from this project, many tips were given to on how to maintain a business. It more than just good service, you have to love what you do. The most meaningful thing I learned from this experience is the key to a successful business is to, have strong goals, don’t let anything get in the way of those goals. Be of good character, what you treat customers reflects and has a clear impact on the business treat people how you want to be treated. Stay a step of head in the business world; even if business is steady always look for improvement so business doesn’t fall through. Revenue must be kept active, and keep liabilities in check so falling behind on bills won’t take a toll on revenue. Business is your main priority when running one of your own, always stay responsible and do what’s best for the business and its customers/ potential customers. Learning this gives me an awareness of how to develop my own business. It helped me out a lot and taught me a lot, which excites me to learn and do more. Hopefully with what I learned here and more I have to learn in class I will have develop my own successful business.
