How many questions?
Sep 10, 2018
What are the questions?

- How do you routinely scan the environment to ensure that you understand potential impacts on your business?
- What people, product, and organization-based legitimacy indicators are associated with your business? How do you determine which associates are most appropriate?
- How did you go about establishing an appropriate social network? What advice would you give?
- How do you approach issues with sustainability within your business?
- What guidelines do you use when faced with ethical dilemmas? Do you have any suggestions?

Hmm I was interested until i saw those questions. Typical school assignment mumbo jumbo.

Here are the questions I would like to answer:

1. How did I get started?
2. What was my first business that I tried?
3. How did I fail miserably until I found something that worked?
4. How did I land my first customer/client?
5. What does my day to day routine look like?
6. Where am I at now and where do I think I'll be in 1, 2, 5 years from now?

Good luck with the assignment though. I get it it's school. But those questions sound like they're for those who go and get fancy MBA's. I didn't become an entrepreneur because I'm the smartest cat in the alley. I became an entrepreneur because I wanted to make more money than I was making at my job. Then it became, how do i make even MORE money than I am making now, and eventually, how do I free up my time? The last factors being constantly taking action, falling flat on my face over and over again, learning, and not giving up.
