What I learned
Through this assignment I learned a couple of important things about business, entrepreneurship and also about myself.
I learned that there is not much money in the clothing and fashion niche in the market as there is already lots of competition. There is a lot of struggle in this line of business. Something I discovered about myself is that I want to be an entrepreneur as I like to take risks and I want to work for myself and be my own boss.
What I learned
Through this assignment, I have learned many things about both being an entrepreneur and being an enterprising person. This allowed me to analysis myself and see the type of person I am. I learned that both lines of work require a lot of hard work, determination, optimism, and sacrifice of some sorts to become successful. What I learned about myself is that I feel more comfortable being an enterprising person rather than an entrepreneur, but I would hope to possibly start up my own company in the future.
