How do you start your own business? Is college necessary?
I am a 5th year college student. I had to set out a semester. No, it was not for academic reasons. Although, it does seem like every year I barely get by. I have always wanted to go to school, but my passion is to start a business or businesses that can help other people in need. I know college is a good thing and it's hard to get a job without it, but I want my own business. Do you all think it is possible to teach myself with the assistant of people who have knowledge about a business. Also, I reside in W.V., but I would like to have a business elsewhere someday. Maybe, Florida. That's still open for discussion. Can anyone outline steps on how to start your own business. I want to operate a hotel someday. Also, if you all know of any sites or alternates for college than please let me know. Thank you all for your answers and honesty.11 months ago - 1 answers
