I honestly am completely new to all things business. My parents do not work in anything even related to business, I’ve spent my undergraduate career studying the intricacies of government, and when I tried to take accounting last spring…I crashed and burned into the fiery pits of a W. I would classify myself as business illiterate, and I’m facing a bit of a learning curve in this class.
That said, our discussion last class gave me the history behind business that I needed in order to form a solid base for further business knowledge. I like to know the background and the big picture – and that was exactly what we talked about. I was able to connect business with other subjects I’ve studied in depth – government and sociology. These connections really helped me to gain a firmer grasp on business concepts.
I started thinking about how business will change in the future, and which business models will flourish and which will fail based on the big picture trends. I like the concept of a business model that can “grow anywhere,” (hence the title of the blog). A business that can be mobile if needed, provides a service, and with sustainable units could grow anywhere. I don’t have an idea yet of what service this business could provide, but I’m sure as we learn more about the products and service that will be needed and highly valued in the future the ideas will come.
