I decided that I would pursue something that I always wanted to try and start my own online craft business. Since I always love to make sure that it is reasonable before I jump into something I researched what it took to get a business running smoothly. That led to taking classes in business which was highly fascinating. And although I loved to create, the thing that drove me was the researching and the analytical skills that go into making a business run smoothly and go into getting people interested in the product. However, I decided to stick it out with the graphic design major because I felt like it would provide me with valuable life and business skills.
