    What should I major in if I want to be a small business owner?

    I would like to own a small chocolate shop. Nothing too fancy, just like a small shop you'd pass around the mall. Is it hard to maintain a small business? Any tips from business owners and what do I major in? Thanks!

    Just do like a diploma in small business management or accounting or something. Just to give you a general idea of the skills you'll need. The rest you could teach yourself on the job. A university degree isn't necessary.

    • u major in a Free Library Card. u can get all the info u need to be self employed opening a business at the local library. everything ! 2nd post - since most businesses do not make it past 5 years, a visit to BLS.gov/OOH will let u learn 100s of other careers/jobs u may like. local community college in USA have program under 2 yrs often 18 months leading to careers/jobs that are in demand. many earning 30,000 - 60,000$ a year plus benefits.
